Great set, Hep! I thought about posting mine but decided to leave that honor to you.  :)

The Jack Davis You'll Die Laughing set was the first monster trading card set... and the best;)

I don't know much about these cards. Didn't they do a photo version from the old B/W movies? I had a friend that a had a stack of them back in the early 1970's.

Yep, that's them. That was the year I remember seeing them.
After that craze died, the Wacky Packages started up. I was really into the Wacky Packages, and have a nice collection of them.

Wow! Great visuals! I've always loved the plethora of colours in which the Nutty Mads were made available.
