Italian Wührer Premium Trading Cards Series II

Today we have Series II of the Wuhrer premium trading cards. As with Series I it consists of a set of 6 cards illustrated with scens from the film in essentially film order, back containing a synopsis of the scene illustrated.

Card 1 features Alice getting ready to recite for the Caterpillar

Card 2 features the angry mother bird atop a giant Alice

Card 3 features the Mad Hatter drinking tea at the Mad Tea Party

Card 4 features the same image from the promotional postcard of the March Hare instructing Alice with the Mad Hatter in the background at the Mad Tea Party (two tea party scenes?! were's the Cheshire Cat?)

Card 5 features Alice and the Painter Cards painting the roses red

and Card 6 features the Queen of Hearts getting ready to let one fly during the croquet match.

There is also an album you could get to hold all your Wuhrer trading cards. There were a total of 12 series, the album held all 12 sets of 6 cards, for a total of 72 cards. I have only ever seen one (not in my collection), but I do have pictures of the cover and the Alice pages.

The album itself is fairly simple, just construction paper pages with slits cut to hold the corners of the cards.

Good grief these are awesome! I LOVE trading cards, and collected all kinds over the years, but never knew these existed! The album is great too!

Boy, I would think that the paper in that album (which is cool admittedly) is probably so acidic that it would ruin the cards. Maybe not though... anyway, these are great!
