Oddball Monster Card Articles



The Oddball Monster card articles are annual write-ups about obscure or unusual monster sets often overlooked by most card catalogs. Some of these cards are quite rare, but most all of them are interesting in their own right. A few are only border-line monster sets. If you have a series you would like reviewed in upcoming articles, please contact me.
