Batman Gum Cards
April 21, 2008
Once the Batman TV Show began, so did Batmania. A number of sets of Bubble Gum Cards appeared in 1966 and 1967. I collected them all and even sent off for the Albums to stick them in. Later Albums came with little pre-cut slots to lodge the cards in place which was far more sensible.
The first two series of cards were painted, probably by the same guy(s) who had painted the Civil War and Mars Attacks cards of a few years earlier. I like this Catwoman card.

At about the same time as the cards a number of Colouring Books appeared. Somehow this one is still on my bookcase to this day.
