These Trading Cards Are Still TOTALLY MAD

The cover of MAD magazine’s April 1959 issue proclaims, “This is the END of MAD.” But the magazine’s loyal readers weren’t worried. After all, this was MAD, with its pages full of irreverent parody and mockery. It was, as the cover date suggests, the month of April and it turned out that this was MAD’s April Fool joke. That was revealed in this small-print footnote: “Mainly, this is the back cover for the beginning of MAD; turn the magazine upside down, and start at the front, stupid. APRIL FOOL!” Now, it turns out that the statement was prophetic, if off by 60 years. With those six decades now passed, loyal MAD readers are now lamenting the announced shutdown of their favorite magazine after 67 years of new content publication. But non-sport collectors needn’t worry. They can continue their relationship with MAD through hundreds of cards in at least seven sets, including one produced by the magazine itself.
