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!
