I remember getting my Dad to buy packs of these cards. I would love to get the box of reprints of these cards which were printed a few years ago. What I remember about the bubble gum was that it was as hard as a rock when i first put it in my mouth, but I wasn't going to pass it up.
Never had these as a kid, but when I got a big box of baseball cards around 1970, a few of these cards were included. Having LOVED the Batman TV series, they were sacred.I bought the reprints in the early 90s, and love 'em so.Just spectacular renderings.. I believe a few card images sell as 8x10's on eBay so keep your eyes open. I know I'll be buying a few.
The deluxe reissue set was released in 1989, a whole 23 years after the originals. Hard to take in that the reissue set came out 24 years ago - a year longer than the time between their release and the 1966 set. Wow! Where did the time go?
