I recently came across these cool trading cards featuring scaled-down versions of movie posters from some of Japan's most famous kaiju-themed films, like Godzilla vs. Hedorah and Godzilla vs. Mecha Godzilla. The cards, which are on good, heavy paper stock, were made in 1995 in Japan by Amada, a company that's been making paper-based items for quite a long time.
Here are pics of the cards I got:

On the back, there's a still photo and information about the film including its release date and other details. Here are a couple of the back sides:
Compared to properties like Ultraman and Kamen Rider, my sense is there are relatively few Godzilla themed items out there - besides toys, of course. You come across them, but it isn't nearly as inundating as with other characters. Not sure why that is, but anyway, these cards are nice, and I'm glad to have a chance to show them here.
