Adventures of Captain Chapel: Trip to the Moon Mister Softee - 1962
Notes: Originally distributed as product premiums. Thanks much to Uschi Lohnes for the list, and the commentary that follows: Adventures of Captain Chapel colorful cards tells a short story of Earth's first space mission to the moon as commanded by Captain Chapel. These are very similar in artwork and format to Tip Top Bread Space Cards, Chex Cereal Space Patrol Cards, Bowman's Jets, Rockets, and Spacemen Cards, and Skelly Gas' All American Space Fleet Cards. The biggest difference is that this is a smaller and much more affordable series of trading cards. The last card (#10) announces more adventures to come, but this was the only series ever issued. An "Adventures of Captain Chapel Fan Club Card" (smaller in size) was distributed in conjunction with this set and is extremely dificult to locate. It is not considered part of the set.
