The Atom and Hawkman trading card


This card came in a sheet of other cards and you were instructed to cut along the dotted lines, then proceed to collect them all. This one is part of the "Great Teams" category of the set, and the Joe Kubert art is taken from The Atom and Hawkman #45, which incidentally, was the last issue of an epic Atom and Hawkman run.
And because the cover of the comic isn't enough, whomever is responsible for these things has taken to including ballistic designs on the outer edges. Reminiscent of a trapper keeper. Way to go.

The back of the card reads:
"Fellow Justice Leaguers Atom and Hawkman - the Titan and the Fury - found they worked well together, their individual powers and abilities frequently melding into a finely tuned crimefighting machine."

So true.

Put out in 1989, the Titan and the Fury were on a sheet with some strange company, including Geo-Force, Black Manta, Man*Bat, Justice League Europe, Black Hand, The Phantom Stranger, and Halo.

There's more of these sweet babies to come, so no worries. You're excited.
