Outer Limits trading cards

I have a DVD set of the first season of THE OUTER LIMITS. Occasionally I watch an episode, just like kids did in 1964, when they wanted to see what kind of monster they could come up with that week. Topps gum company thought it would be a good idea to make a series of cards using those monsters, so they colored some production stills, wrote up some copy for the backs of the cards to go with the pictures (they couldn't use the TV stories, or they'd have to pay the writers royalties), and put them out in a set of 50. Needless to say, they were a monster hit.
