These "cards" are actually comic strips which were cut from newspapers and expertly pasted onto cardboard. They tell a story of Alley Oop's rescue from a nasty three-fingered meat eater (Allosaurus? Giganotosaurus?) by his faithful companion, Dinny, the dinosaur. These, of course, are not true collectibles but I kept them in this site as they remind me of when I use to read Alley Oop in the comic pages as a youth.

NOTE: card sizes span from black border to black border which is where the comic ends and the cardboard backing begins.
