    Description

    1961 Nu-Cards "Horror Monsters" Second Series Run (#'s 99 - 146) - Three Uncut Sheets. Offered is a complete second series from the "Horror Monsters" cards issued by Nu-Card in 1961. This presentation offers the Orange bordered cards in the form of three uncut sheets with 16 cards per sheet. Sheets offer card #'s 99-114, 115-130 and 131-146 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," each shows minor amount of wear at the corners, no creasing, and some stock undulation but retain a visual presentation at the EX/MT level. Nice pieces for framing.
