Outer Limits cards (1964) 1-25
This set of "Gum Cards" or "Non-Sports Cards" was issued in 1964 by Topps. I was about nine years old when the cards were first issued and even at that tender age I was bitterly disappointed that the "stories" on the back were so bad and had nothing to do with the high level of writing that made The Outer Limits one of TVs best shows. However, then and now the images of the monsters from the first season make this one of the great Science Fiction collectables.
