1963 Monster Magic Action Trading Cards Complete Base Set & Lenticular Lens Abby

US $119.99 or Best Offer

Further evidence the Original Generation X (1954–1963) grew up during the best possible time to be alive.

I was searching “vintage lenticular” on eBay — always fascinating — when I came across these beauties. I’d like to buy 1,000 of them and have them sewn into a shroud, which I’d then put in storage to be preserved until the day of my burial.
