Ugly Stickers (Topps, 1965 & 1973) Two series of bizarre monster stickers by former EC & Mad Magazine artists Wally Wood and Basil Wolverton-- and even pulp cover master, Norm Saunders. Each series has common names under the monster, variations of the same sticker with different names available (and blank sticker backs). All stickers have blank backs. Series 1 (44 stickers) retail: $200 Nrmt. (Complete set of all variations would be 164 stickers.) Series 2 (55 stickers) retail $150. (Complete set of all variations would be 110 stickers.) The easiest way to tell the two series apart is that the 1965 series is numbered, and the 1973 series is not. The 1973 series also includes a puzzle set of 9 cards (see puzzle backs). The puzzel retails at $20 (The UK division of Topps issued the 1973 series in 1976 in England. The only difference is that the backs are white cardboard instead of brown paper.)
