Jets, Rockets and Spacemen - Original Trading Card Artwork
The Jets Rockets and Spacemen story continues in the tradition
of Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers of the 1930's. Captain Zara and
Doctor Zara explore the planets of outer space, fighting battles
against the creatures of the solar system.
The artwork was done by the George Moll Agency for Bowman
Gum Co. in 1951 to 1952. The art measures approximately 4"
x 6" and is shown here in 3/4 size.
Card number 9 - Spacemen Repairing Rocket in Flight. "Dr.
Zara was giving us an informal lecture on the fourth dimension
ehrn our moonship shivered from a violent impact. We went outside,
and estimated the damage. There were bad dents, which might become
fractures if not repaired. With pressurized tools, we poured liquified
lunar material into the depressions. The liquid solidified instantly
in the cold of the interplanetary void. The ship would remain
spacetight." (Stock number 123jrs09) $2,400.00 SOLD
Card number 12 - Attacked by Ray Fighters. "Outlaw ray
fighters flashed out of the void. They spat green hypo-cosmic
rays at our moon rocket 6X52, These hypo rays can go through a
spaceship, or other object without damaging it. They have no effect
on Venusians or Martians. But they put Earthmen to sleep. The
object was to capture the 6X52 and sell us into slavery on some
distant asteroid. Drowsiness crept over us. But we shook it off,
and manned our blast guns. We repelled the vicious attack."

- further moon of Mars - Capt. Argo, Dr. Zara and I strayed from

us to the satellites un-Earthian conditions. A huge dragon roared
out from the rocks. One of the claws raked my wrist. I thought
I was a goner. But the captain and Dr. Zara fired their ray pistols
with deadly effect. The monster collapsed at our feet. Martian
physicians later applied healing balm to my injured wrist."
