"Nuts to you."

So we recently sold a full set of unpunched 1966 Topps Funny Rings trading cards on the eBay, and I thought I’d share a few with you folks.

This ring introduced the harsh realities of the real world to the young’uns, so the cards are at least educational:

I’ve had moments where this next ring would have come in handy at work. “Hey, I invested heavily in multiple copies of Another Temporarily Dead Superhero #233, and from the profit I made I was able to recover the car seats with high quality lemur fur. What say you to that?”


Hey, remember that brief period in human history where the word “fink” was apparently a punchline in and of itself?

I swear I have Wizard of Id paperbacks with long stretches of reprinted dailies where some variation on “you fink” was the joke.

This set had more than its fair share of weird monsters, like this handsome fella:

…okay, maybe it’s a “pretty lady” and not a “handsome fella.” Your guess is as good as mine.

And I think this next ring is my favorite of the bunch:

…simply for the sheer bizarreness of it. “Yes, I’m a man who loves hot dogs, and I don’t care who knows it! BEHOLD THE WIENER RING.”
