    SPICY: NAUGHTY '30s PULP COVERS Trading Cards: Set 1 (1992). (NO BOX)

    From 1930 to 1934, a subgenre of the pulp magazines printed salacious (for its time) fiction along with risqué covers. The covers were surprisingly frank --- titillating, without being explicit. Titles included Gay French Life, Cupid Capers, New York Nights, Bedtime Stories, Saucy, Stolen Sweets and Spicy (hence the card set title). Cover art by illustrators like Enoch Bolles, H. J. Ward, George Quintana, E. K. Bergey, R.A. Burlet and Peter Driben. Fascinating back-of-card text by magazine collector Robert Brown who provides the insightful history behind these naughty Depression-era magazines.

    This first Spicy Trading Cards set was published by Kitchen Sink Press in 1992 as a boxed set that sold out long ago. What we are offering here is a complete 39-card set of the original cards without the box. Each card is NM/Mint. For those of you who like to organize your cards in clear pocket pages, the box isn't needed anyway. We see the boxed sets go for $25 and up at conventions.
