These are Japanese menko cards from the mid to late 50s. It was common for these Western themed cards to be issued in strips. I have a sumo set from 1956 in this style. Made by the Mitsuwa Gangu Company. It is uncataloged and the names on the front of the menko read "red face""outlaw""Winchester" etc. Just generic names. There are dozens of menko sets from the 1950s and 1960s with western themes. I have other sets and would like to catalog these western themed menko someday like I have with sumo menko.

Jon, the Stickshift PLYMOUTH SUPERBIRD card haunts me. My friends older brother had 1 of these Hemi, Lime Green under a tarp in front yard for years. He offered to sell it to me for $2000.00 in 1980. DOINK! Now I watch barret jackson as my 2K dream has now mushroomed into a 175,000 dream! (sigh)

Just some assorted stuff I don't need:
Family..My Great Grandma (indian)school pic just uncovered. Couple and man with gun sewn together..family
You know you are a redneck if...(pssft!)

some trade and cereal etc...

I posted a couple of these a week or two ago asking for ID help. I received an email from a VERY knowledgable collector who thinks they may be S42 Silks. Here are the others:

The Cuda,GTX and Superbird take me back to the mid 60's when on Friday nite everyone would go to BoB's Big Boy and all kinds of these great cars would circle around the resturant "showing off". My question is, there used to be a car like the Superbird but we called it a Superbee. Was there a different car with that name or are they one in the same?

The Super Bee was the Dodge version of the Plymouth Road Runner.
