OMG!!! I remember cheesy! Then, a few years later, I collected The Charlie's Angels cards! Ahhh- I think back to a time when life was so much more simple and kids actually had to find ways to amuse themselves.

The PARTRIDGE FAMILY GUM CARDS were Topp's at its worst. This was a 44-card set in which one or two were just impossible to get to complete the puzzle. Made available late in 1971, the cards were just another example of frugality on the part of Topp's with regard to TV show tie-ins. One example, "Lost In Space." At least Topp's showed some creativity when it did the "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In" set.

Shirley Jones sure was hot! So was Susan Dey!

While scanning eBay, I came across an even scarcer Partridge Family gum series by Topps (OPC in Canada). That being posters in wax packs. One to a pack, I believe twenty in all, mostly of David Cassidy. While an unopened pack of cards runs about $20, a poster pack runs over $50, more if certified by a grading company. There isn't much difference in value between the Topps and the Canadian variant.

Came across some of the third series (green border) cards at an antique dealer. Many of the 88 cards reprinted pictures from the first two series. The third series went on sale at the start of 1972. Of the few cards I found, some had updated photos...but none with Brian Forster (the new Chris). The few with Chris pictured were still Jeremy Gelbwaks, the first actor. Another example of how frugal Topps was in producing the cards. The poster set is 24 in all. Only found six so far, most in a tattered condition.

Going over images of the yellow, blue and green border Partridge cards, one seemed to be elusive (if it existed), with Reuben (Dave Madden) in drag as a fairy godmother with wand (from a dream sequence involving Tracy and Chris in an episode). Madden was a funny comedian, first appearing as a counselor in "Camp Runamuck" (1965-66) with Dave Ketchum and Arch Johnson. Then, drinking milk and throwing confetti on "Laugh-In." Madden voiced Reuben in one or two cartoon episodes of "Partridge Family 2200 A.D." (1974), followed by several years on "Alice" (1980s).
