Monster Magic Action Trading Cards, 1963














"Monster Magic Action Trading Cards (1963)

In 1963, Abbey Vending issued Monster Magic Action Cards. Monster Magic Action cards are 3-D and feature generic monsters. There are 24 cards in the set. Cards are routinely found in complete set form with accompanying viewer lens. The cards were sold on a blister card instead of in wax packs.

When using the Magic Action viewer, the cards would come to life showing a flying monster's wings flapping or the tail of a giant lizard whipping up and down or people fleeing."

The following are a few lower resolution pics I was able to find. If anyone has links to higher res pics of the rest of these cards, please share it in the comments, thanks!

No matter how many times I twist and turn my monitor, I just can't get these to animate.

These are another rare and crazy find. Aeron, I can't even begin to imagine how many folders full of monsters, aliens, and haunted things you have crowding your hard drive.
