Comic book foldees 1966: Atom

Man I love these things. See, you fold them to make funny pictures. There's tell that they were often the life of the party in the mid to late 60's, and many attribute these beauties to all the happiness that was going on back then. I can see why! It's also up there amongst my favorite eyeless Atom merchandise.
As you can see, the cards also feature the faces of DC's finest, and they all seem to be moderately amused by this out of control foldee! Except for Aquaman. Looks like he sees trouble. And Carter, the only member not facing front, can of course not keep his eyes off Ray for a second.

And here's the back of the card...

Seriously, how many trading cards featuring Mahatma Gandhi are out there?

Probably not many I say.

Whoo! You're right Rob, it does look like a Wallace.

That would be awesome is what it would be.
