More Batman Gum Cards
March 9, 2010
Way back in April and October 2008 elsewhere on this blog I mentioned the re-discovery of my collection of Batman Bubble Gum Cards (they seem to call them “Trading Cards” nowadays). The first couple of series were painted likenesses of the Dynamic duo. Batmania swept the world in 1966 and before the year was out more sets of cards had appeared. This time the fronts consisted of photographs taken either from the TV show or the feature film. The backs contained jokes and riddles and could be put together to make simple jigsaw puzzles.
