    Description

    1966 Topps "Comic Book Foldees" Complete Set (44) Plus Wrapper. The 1966 Topps "Comic Book Foldees" series is quite an odd concept, one that long-time card collector Woody Gelman borrowed from a 19th Century tobacco card set. The cards are 4-3/4" x 2-1/2" tri-panels with die-cut perforations and stamped joint impressions that allow for the interchanging of head and/or body sections from one image to another, creating nine different possible image combinations on each card! If you wanted to see Superman with the half-torso and legs of Gandhi--this was the set for you! The "Foldees" are very colorful and the center panels feature 44 of the DC Comics heroes and villains. The nature of this set makes unfolded fully intact panels pretty tough to find. The wrapper presents at the EX/MT level. Grades 13% NM, 62% EX to EX/MT, 25% VG to VG/EX (some lesser).
