Super Friends Puzzle Cards - 1975

I thought I'd kick off the Shrine's fourth year with a timely example of the extraordinary generosity of Aqua-Fans!

Waiting on my doorstep a few days ago was a package from some anonymous F.O.A.M. member/Aqua-Fan and inside was the the JLA #217 book cover we've talked about before, as well as something more unusual: six puzzle/trading cards, copyrighted 1975, featuring the Super Friends in little pre-fab mazes.

Seen above is the card Aquaman got all to himself, but he also makes an appearance on one of the others:
These are wonderfully charming little cards, I've never seen them before! I wonder if there are more?

The package came with no name on the return address (somewhere in OK) and no note, so I have no idea who sent me this, but I sure am grateful--not only for the stuff itself, but for the chance to discover some piece of Aqua-arcana I never knew existed. Thanks to our mystery F.O.A.M.er!

I just wanted to say that you have an awesome blog. There is great info here and I always liked Aquaman, too.

I'd be so tempted to scratch these cards and find out what's underneath.

I kinda miss seeing these sorts of puzzles round. Do kids not do mazes anymore?
