Description

Ghosts, monsters, and macabre magic! You can see ‘em all in Spook Show! A vintage horror series of trading cards by Monsterwax.

Back during the 1940s, 50s, and 60s, daring magicians rented movie theaters at midnight with the express purpose of "scaring the yell" out of their audience. For a $1 or less, thrill seekers witnessed black magic, gruesome illusions, and the "black out"-- when glowing spirits flew overhead and the crowds ducked in terror. Then the horror flick would begin... assuming the entire audience hadn't already fled the theater in panic!

If you were among the millions who experienced this incredible fright of fancy (and especially if you didn't), then you won't want to miss the sheer horror of Spook Show-- a collection of the best vintage horror posters from the traveling spookers. You'll also learn the behind-the-scenes history of the "ghost masters" and the ingenious tricks they used to tantalize the imagination and dumbfound crowds from ghost to coast!

Each 24 count box includes at least one 66 card set, PLUS
Six different "Frightening Foil" cards,
Three different "Gruesome Gimmick" cards,
Two different "Emerge-O-Vision" embossed cards,
Two of the six different promos, plus every box includs an original artist sketch card.

Added bonus:
Every box has either a Monsterwax Metal card (actual printing plate from the series) or an autograph card from an actual Spook Show magician (a real Ghostmaster)!

Only 500 numbered boxes made!
