A MONSTER CARD COLLECTION!

The 50-card issue was distributed in one-cent and five-cent packs with
gum. The photos of chilling monsters came from 19 different episodes
of the ABC televisions series The Outer Limits (1963-1965), including
18 episodes from the first season. Like the TV series, the 1964 Topps
Outer Limits cards are more popular now than they were upon the initial
release.

Host John Newland as "Our guide into the world of the unknown".

Unlike other anthology programs such as Twilight Zone and Outer Limits, the ABC 
network series One Step Beyond, created by Merwin Gerard, was presented in the 
form of thirty-minute docudramas, all said to be based on true events. The show
Initially included the name of the sponsor Alcoa as part of its full title. The original
run of the series was three seasons from January 1959 to July 1961.

Harry Lubin composed the music for the series. The Ventures included a cover
version of the show’s main theme "Fear" on their highly acclaimed 1964 Dolton
Records
release The Ventures in Space. The second season of The Outer
Limits
used a variation of "Fear" for the end titles.
