Set Comments

Spook Stories claim to fame is that it is the very first monster card set to use classic monster photos on slick, glossy paper. And it all adds up to an extremely popular set that's still relatively affordable. Series I cards are common to find in lower grades and slightly more difficult to locate in top grade. Several of the series II cards are difficult to come by, especially in high grade. Stickers are extremely scarce.

Card wrappers and display boxes identify these cards as "Spook Theatre"  and "Son of Spook Theatre" though "Spook Stories" is the much more common name and can be found on the back of each card. NOTE: Obtain stickers from a reputable dealer as counterfeit stickers have been found.

Spook Stories collectors tend to also enjoy:  1961 Horror Monsters (Green), 1961 Horror Monsters (Orange), 1963 Terror Monsters and 1963 Famous Monsters.
