Bad Biker Kitties: Topps Perlorian Cats

If you've ever wanted to see members of a kitten motorcycle gang, here they are.

In 1982, Topps released Perlorian Cats Stickers, unusual trading cards by Satoru Tuda.  This series appears to be from another country.
I'm sure I could easily find out where these originated, but the mystery is part of the appeal for me here.  I don't even know how I got these.  I don't remember buying them.  I think they may have been a purchase from a yard sale when I was a kid.  I have a bunch of these in a photo album, and I wonder if we bought someone's collection.
These are bizarre.  Cute, but bizarre.  It looks like the photographers had firm-bodied, snap-on costumes for these pictures.

There were many other themes in this collection.

Like other Topps sets, there are images on the back of the cards that make a larger picture.
Gum was included with these stickers, and I'll bet it was tuna flavored.

  2. Hey Robyn! You know, there's no way I could possibly make some of this stuff up, and I think I'm pretty imaginative. :-)

  4. Hey Ally! I'm glad you like them! It would have been really funny if they had dressed one up like Marlon Brando from "The Wild One."

  6. Hey Nicoya Grobman! I know, they are wild. Maybe Perlorian could team up with "Sons of Anarchy" for some new cards.

  7. Hi Dan, Satoru Tsuda is a Japanese photographer (his name is misspelled on the cards) who is responsible for these cool cats. Read all about him here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perlorian
