Spooky Topps Cards to Collect
Greetings, ghouls, goblins, and even candy corn connoisseurs (yes, we know it’s cool to dislike it)! This Halloween, we’re here to conjure up some spine-tingling fun. Instead of the usual candy treats, we’re serving up our list of top Fright Flicks cards from the legendary 1988 Topps Fright Flicks set. We’re taking a nostalgic trip down the chilling memory lane of vintage horror trading cards.
Topps Fright Flicks Cards, Pt. 1
1988 Topps Fright Flicks #1 Title Card-Freddy Krueger
In the spooky shadows of Elm Street, the nightmare begins! The first card in the 1988 Topps Fright Flicks set introduces us to the one and only Freddy Krueger. With his razor-sharp wit and even sharper claws, Freddy haunts your dreams and turns them into chilling Halloween-themed horrors. Will you survive the nightmarish fun of Fright Flicks?
1988 Topps Fright Flicks #25 She’s Not Exactly a “10” But She’s a Prefect 1/10th!
At first glance, one doesn’t expect Freddy Krueger to be so dapper. Then you see him suited and booted in a tux, holding a human head like Kawhi Leonard palms a basketball. Remember, kids: Villains come in all types of outfits. Let’s all thank 1988 Topps Fright Flicks for the PSA.
1988 Topps Fright Flicks #76 I’ve Gone All to Pieces Over You, Honey!
“I’ve Gone All to Pieces Over You, Honey!” from the 1988 Topps Fright Flicks set brings a chilling twist to love and Halloween. This eerie card is a nod to the spine-tingling movie “Poltergeist,” where a suburban family’s life turns into a supernatural nightmare. In the film, paranormal forces take hold of their home, causing objects to move on their own and even leading to a memorable scene where a man hallucinates that his face is falling apart!
1988 Topps Fright Flicks #6 Doc, How Do I Get a Head in This Life?
The 1988 Topps Fright Flicks #6 Doc, How Do I Get a Head in This Life? spawned from George Romero’s 1985 movie Day of the Dead, a film so gore-filled that it was released to theaters unrated. Imagine that in 2023! It’d be a hit at the box office.
1988 Topps Fright Flicks #36 What Do You Mean? I Just HAD a Manicure!
Friday Night often goes unnoticed in the horror film hierarchy, but Fright Flicks showed it some love, highlighting the 1980s horror film in its set. Directed by Tom Holland (nope, not Spidey Tom Holland), this one’s a scream. Picture this: a teenager teams up with a washed-up horror show host to take down the vampires staking a claim on his block. Among these bloodsuckers is the slick and smarmy Jerry Dandridge, played perfectly by Chris Sarandon. Forget Keanu’s “Matrix” cool. Jerry was making the undead look fetch in the 80s.
