Saw an ad for these in an early 50's Daredevil(not Marvel) comic. I tried finding pics on this site, but no luck. there were five sets of three cards, all characters from Gleason's comics. Intersting comic titles: Crime does not Pay, Boy, Crime and Punishment, Daredevil, and Black Diamond. Each set was available for two cut-out coupons from those comics and 10c. Do any of you guys have these and any pics?

The title caught my interest, as I am very familiar with the publisher and those comic titles, but wasn't aware there were cards issued by them. Do you have a scan of the ad, or can you at least let me know what issue number it was that you saw it in? I don't think I have any of the golden age Daredevil issues currently, but may be able to locate scans if you don't have a hard copy to get one from.

Thanks Richard for the ebay tip. I was surprised at the selling price, given the lack of fame for these characters.

Lance, the ad was in Daredevil #13. I scanned it, but will have to re-read how to post images on the site.

This is a complete set of the cards. Unfortunely all have had the coupon
cut off.

There are three cards listed on the ad: Rocky X, Simpy Smith and The Vacuum. Does anybody know if these exist?

Just found the original ad for these cards. This two page spread is from
BOY comic number 70, Oct. 1951.
I cropped the pages to show larger scans of the cards.

I think there are actually 2 different sets of these cards. One has the coupon on the bottom and the other one does not. I have some of each set and twelve of the cards are the same in each set and the other three are completely different cards. Also some of the colors are different on some of the cards (green hat, brown hat, blue sky, yellow sky, etc.) and the words are in different places on the two sets. I would be glad to send some pictures, but don't know how.

Mike, if you want to send the photos or scans to me, I will get them posted for you.
