    Description

    1961 Nu-Cards "Horror Monsters" Second Series Run (#'s 99 - 130) - Two Uncut Sheets. Offered is a near run of the second series from the "Horror Monsters" cards issued by Nu-Card in 1961. This presentation offers the Orange bordered cards in the form of two uncut sheets, there are 16 cards per sheet. Sheets offer card #'s 99-114 and 115-130 respectively. Horror Monsters are a particularly kitschy contribution to the fright card genre. The monsters depicted in the set aren't, for the most part, the highly pedigreed superstars of the breed. These are lesser lights, like The Queen of Outer Space, The H-Man, Teen Age Werewolf, and The Tingler. You remember, the same folks that appeared in those campy and horrible 1950s horror flicks we saw at the drive-in. These guys may be the minor leaguers of horror, but their efforts are nevertheless appreciated on these cards, and are somehow all the more charming and "fearsome" for their lack of lengthy terrifying track records. Each uncut sheet measures 10x14" and aside from a very, very minor amount of wear at the corners, slight creasing at one corner, the panels present at the EX/MT level. Nice pieces for framing.
