Finally broke down my box. Excellent production values, as usual with Kurt's offerings!

This set features artwork by Frank Russo, with (you guessed it) monster faces on the card fronts, and comic images on the card backs. Some of the images and text are adult-oriented.

The set was produced in 2007, but cards and packaging show the 2006 copyright date of the artwork.

36 packs of 6 cards supplied 216 cards, which would have produced exactly three complete sets if collation were perfect, but I only got one complete set and was three short of a second. A total of 166 boxes were produced.

Special cards included:

- A Frank Russo Auto Sketch card

- Actual Artist DNA card (a strand of hair for mine)

- A winning Prize Redemption card (mine was the "common" prize, but possibilities are:

.... Frank Russo Comic Book [142]
.... "Spook House" from MF Toys [12]
.... Monsterfaces T-Shirt [8]
.... Original Monsterfaces Painting [4]

- Box-bottom "card" (integral with box)

Rather cool!

Seems like decent odds for a rare redemption.

Broke down box #22 of 166 Saturday May 26, 2007

3 partial sets
2 missing one card #46
1 missing 4 cards #37, 38, 40 and you guessed it #46
A1 - Comic book redemption card
A2 - DNA card Strand of Hair
P1
P2
Autograph Sketch Card
Press Plate for card # 37 OldGhoul
(Kinda neat since I like Old School Hot Rods!)
6 duplicate cards (#8,9,10,12,13,& 35)
The wrappers are paper almost like the Wax packs of old and held together with tape.
Easy to open and display with the set.
Nice display box

I dont really consider the card on the bottom of the box as a card. Its blank backed and part of the box. Nice artwork on the box

Kurt honored his guarantee and swapped out the cards I was missing so now I have 3 complete sets. Its a pleasure doing business with such a dedicated collector. Thanks

Just an update on those: I've gotten the first batch back from Frank so we're hoping to get most of them out in the mail in time for Christmas. Happy Holidays everyone!
