TOPPS: TARZAN'S SAVAGE FURY 1953 - COMPLETE 60-CARD SET PLUS WRAPPERS

Topps Tazan series - there were two of 60 cards each, Tarzan and the She Devil and Tarzan's Savage Fury, only Savage Fury is included here - followed the brief fad of 3D images during the early 1950s in movies, comic books, and trading cards. If you have a pair of the appropriate glasses, you'll find the 3D effect quite strong on some of these cards. But you will also see that with virtually no color and no snappy black and white, just kind of muddy tones, interest in the images is limited. And that, I believe, is a good part of why 3D died out rather quickly.
