What do you get when you mash up Hot Wheels, monsters and detailed artwork? 1980 Topps Weird Wheels. Featuring a checklist of colorful creations, the sticker set blends Kustom Kulture with matinee horror. It's not a super valuable set but it is a ton of fun.

The 1980 Topps Weird Wheels checklist is a relatively small 55 cards. The design is all about the artwork. Cards are otherwise white save for a couple lines of small print. Illustrations cover almost all of the front anyway with the name of the vehicle artistically integrated into the design.

The cards themselves have monsters and other creatures driving a customized car, truck or bike. They're over-the-top and bring the likes of Rat Fink to mind. This isn't the first time such cards were made. Donruss did something very similar a full decade earlier with its Odd Rods line that spanned multiple series.

1980 Topps Weird Wheels features some of the final card work done by the legendary Norm Saunders as well as Gary Hallgren. There is some dispute as to how much Saunders, whose other Topps work includes Mars Attacks and Civil War News, contributed. It may have paintings or it might have been touch-up work.

As cool as the cards look, they came out at a time when the Kustom Kulture was well past its peak. The set flopped and it's still readily available at reasonable prices today. Even professionally graded cards at the top end of the scale are cheap.
