In 1966, Topps issued a series of "Frankenstein Valentine Stickers" that have only improved with age.
Waaaay way back in 1966, Topps put out a series of trading cards called Frankenstein Valentine Stickers, 44 sticker cards in total that featured the likenesses of iconic movie monsters, along with messages of love that ranged from clever to downright creepy. The stickers were painted by artist Norman Saunders (he also did art for the Mars Attacks and Wacky Packages cards), and the individual 5 cent packs of five cards each came with a stick of gum, as was the norm for Topps back in the day.

There’s overwhelming support for clean energy, and the planet is giving us more reasons to invest in renewable power sources with every passing year. Even in the most inhospitable areas, wind and solar can provide a good chunk of our power, if not all of it. So why aren’t we all taking advantage of it? […]
