70's Halloween Greeting Cards

As a kid in the 70's, one thing I could always rely upon was a cool halloween card in the mail from my grandparents (and usually including some money or a stick of Wrigleys tucked inside too!) Here's a memorable selection of some of my favorites-- I even scanned the inside of the cards for you too.

(This last card came with a mirror glued to the inside... to "paste on your neck!")

pap beat me to the punch. This is too sweet. What swell grandparents to understand they had a strange grandson! Holloween Cards!

My favorite is the "Of all the Creepy Crawly Slimy things on Halloween . . . Your my favorite!" Looks like the work of Paul Cooker, Jr.!

How does your house not look like an episode of Hoarders? I don't get it.

I've thought about your question Laurazipan and my answer is this: I have a very good maid. Actually, 95% of the junk I collect, aka hoard, is paper flat so it all stacks nice and neatly in piles and out of the way (you've been over here enough times to see the piles--like omg!)
