Spook Stories Series 1
   Leaf - 1963-1965
Spook Stories Series 2
   Leaf - 1963-1965

Notes: Card fronts give black-and-white or sepia screen shots with humorous 
captions; backs provide "Spook Talk" riddles. Card #12 is reported with two 
different images. American Card Catalog reference is R734-12. Scans are 
posted at the Vintage Non-Sports Cards gallery.

Cards 1-72 ("Series 1") packaging described the set as "Spook Theatre", while 
cards 73-144 were sold in "Son of  Spook Theatre" packaging. There were many 
wrapper variants, and there have been attempts to split stickers into 1st and 2nd 
Series lots, but these lists don't agree, so I conclude that the stickers probably 
spanned multiple print runs. Thanks to Steve Rittenberg for the assist!
