Trading Cards! 1989 Batman Movie Cards!

I have been a dyed-in-the-wool Bat-fan since I first saw the '60s TV show when I was three, and my fandom fluctuated over the years, with the typical hills and valleys that come with any life-long interest. But in 1989, with the release of Tim Burton's first Batman film and having been introduced to comics such as Frank Miller's Dark Knight Returns shortly before that, my Bat-fervor was reignited with abandon.

So, even though I was 16 years old at the time, that didn't stop me from buying up several packs of Batman movie trading cards back in the day, and I managed to score a couple of fresh packs during my Chicago visit last month, just for old-time's sake.

And yes, they still had the gum inside.
