The vexation will have me starting with moral suasion before resorting to threats of abrasion.

The single best publication I've ever encountered on monster and other non-sport trading cards is The Wrapper which Les Davis has been publishing since 1978:





I just renewed my subscription again. Here's the website:

Here's some scans of my Topps Foldees from the '60's that have monsters on 'em...

And I have this Foldee. There's also a vampire in the Comic Book Foldees, but I don't have that one. I think that's all the monsters.

The Creature...

Knowing I'd never pay what these are going for, I made a working repro of the Creature Foldee for my collection.

That's cool. I got mine for a great price about 6 or 7 years ago, but I know they usually go for a lot more than I could afford, too. Here's another Creature you might like. It's from the Topps Frankenstein Valentine Sticker set from the '60's. These are usually expensive, too.

That face looks like it should be wearing a monocle & top hat and smoking a Calabash.
