1988 Topps Fright Flicks Cards Pt. 2
1988 Topps Fright Flicks #88 I’ve Got a Bone To Pick With You!
Card #88 – I’ve Got a Bone To Pick With You! from the 1988 Topps Fright Flicks set adds some gnarly sci-fi vibes to the horror mix with its reference to Predator. In this pulse-pounding flick, an otherworldly hunter comes to Earth, leaving a trail of terror and spine-chilling trophies. This card captures the essence of the movie as the Predator, a fierce and formidable foe, confronts its prey.
1988 Topps Fright Flicks #90 Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!
This might be the most fitting card in the history of trading cards. “Thank You” three times on the final card in the set? Genius. Oh, and it’s an ode to the movie Alien. Toppy released a whole card line for this movie in 1979. The folks at Topps love Alien.
1988 Topps Fright Flicks #83 Try the Shrimp Tempura – It’s Delicious!
The scene depicted in the 1988 Topps Fright Flicks #83 Try the Shrimp Tempura – It’s Delicious! comes from the movie Alien, which we just mentioned. But let’s talk about the caption. Imagine showing up to a restaurant where servers feed you like this. It’s efficient but a little too personal.
1988 Topps Fright Flicks #84 Gary Will Be Here at 8:00 and I Can’t Do a Thing with My Hair!
Card #84 – Gary Will Be Here at 8:00 And I Can’t Do A Thing With My Hair! from the 1988 Topps Fright Flicks set serves up a hair-raising predicament straight from the movie “Vengeance: The Demon.” In this spooktacular flick, it’s not just your average bad hair day – it’s demonic! Our protagonist, probably with a date night gone horribly wrong, is grappling with the ultimate supernatural hair emergency. Forget the curling iron; she might need an exorcist!
1988 Topps Fright Flicks #3 Gotta Quit This Nailbiting Habit!
The last and final card on this list comes from Day of the Dead, and boy, is it a doozy. The hair and makeup folks did a number on this character. I can’t lie. Just looking at this card gives me the heebie jeebies!
