Eclipse looking to save money here by only printing half of the cards in color. There are still some die-hard collectors out there. eBay tells me that in the past month or so at least 6 sets have sold. Hmmm....
Wait, what? Jethro is the real-life son of heavyweight boxer Max Baer? Mad respect.
Don't do it Granny!!!!
That beauty on the right, my friends, is Jethro in drag....playing his sister Jethrene.
The series was getting creative at some point and shot an episode in New York City. The bottom picture is a gentlemen innocently tying his shoe, but the door will soon open and his soon-to-be fiancé thinks he is proposing. You can't make this stuff up folks.
"Stealing from the poor to feed the rich" taking place on the bottom card.
Mr. Drysdale had perseverance, I'll give him that. How he managed to not beat the living snot out of the Clampett family is beyond me, but makes for great television.
The series heads into the 1970s....and into desperation. Interesting factoid on the back of the top card....Jethro, aka Max Baer Jr. directed Smokey and the Bandit.
Here is a shot of the backs...my only complaint is the production quality (really, this is my only complaint). It looks like most of my cards went through the meatgrinder when they were printed. There must have been a roller feeding problem when they were being cut or printed......and so now my "Jethro the Flesh Peddler" card is worthless.
There you have it. I hope this brings a little joy to your Monday!
