    1961 Nu-Cards "Horror Monsters" Uncut Sheets Collection (15). Offered is collection of 15 uncut sheets related to the "Horror Monsters" cards issued by Nu-Card in 1961. 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. This presentation offers the following: 1-5) One complete second series (Orange border) #'s 67 to 146 in the form of five uncut sheets. There are 16 cards per 10x14" sheet. Aside from some wear at corners, overall excellent condition; 6-9) One near-complete second series (Orange border) #'s 83 to 146 in the form of four uncut sheets. There are 16 cards per 10x14" sheet. Aside from some wear at corners, overall excellent condition; 10-15) The oddity of the group. These six sheets blank back, 13-1/4x17" sheets feature the same 16 cards - #'d 1 to 16 - utilizing different background colors. There is one yellow, one orange and four blue color sheets. These cards/numbers do not match the standard "Horror Monsters" set. We have to assume they are were intended as a separate issue or for test marketing. Each has some undulation but no major creasing or wrinkles. Nice pieces for framing.
