Trading cards TRADING CARDS

Monkees Trading Cards

These were cards depicting scenes from the TV show The Monkees, with all your favourite actors in them. The best part was that the packs had banana-flavoured gum in them, which meant they were often referred to as 'bubblegum cards'. You could also buy a special Monkees trading cards album to display your collection in. I bet they're worth a bit these days if you had the foresight to keep them pristine back then.

    I remember collecting Monkees cards - my ones had the lyrics of a song on the back of each one.

    Popular in the mid-late 1960s, there were also horror-themed trading cards.These bubblegum cards included memorable characters like Transparent Man and other assorted ghoulish characters - great for freaking out the little kids in the school playground!
