The Ultra-Rare 1966 Trading Card Of Batman On The Toilet Will Cost You $3,500

Batman on Bat Throne trading card

Despite my love of the Caped Crusader, my collection of Batman stuff -- ie, not comics -- is actually pretty small. I've got a couple of action figures a few pieces of original art and a few bits and bobs, but really, there's not a whole lot out there that I want. Except, of course, for a full set of those awesome, surprisingly violent trading cards from 1966 featuring the artwork of Norm Saunders. I've been wanting a set of those foryears, but I've only got a couple of them.

Unfortunately, even if I had found myself a set of every card that was actually released, it still wouldn't be complete.

The Amazing 1966 ‘Batman’ Trading Cards by Norman Saunders


Surprising no one, I'm always on the lookout for strange and awesome pieces of Batman history, and rarely have they been better than in a set of trading cards from 1966 painted by Norman Saunders. While he might be best known for painting the infamously banned Mars Attacks cards, his work with Batman brings a level of shark-fighting, acid-throwing, sidekick-endangering action -- and a slightly off-model Joker -- that's just fantastic...
