Set Comments

Originally sold as a complete set in the backs of monster magazines, Famous Monsters is routinely found in complete set form (and in fairly decent condition.) Singles can be located, but perhaps not as easily as with some other sets.

Though crudely manufactured, this is a favorite set among collectors owing to it's

relatively low price and simple look. Centering is a problem with many cards in the set and one should not be as particular with Famous Monsters as with other sets.

Collectors of Famous Monsters cards also tend to like the Horror Monsters set of 1961 and the Terror Monsters set of 1963.
