Once bought, any 'pristine' condition these cards might've had typically witnessed shorter lifespans than that of a fly. They were immediately destined to serve bicycle spokes via the nearest clothespin; or find themselves on the receiving end of schoolyard darts; or become brilliantly disfigured with drawn-on Hitler mustaches, eye patches and missing teeth. On the latter count, still remember the 'after' result of one such Dick Dietz card. The Mona Lisa it wasn't.
