1950s Space Race Card Game

I found this fantastic 1952 space themed card game, "Space Race," at a toy show last weekend, and was blown away by its graphics. The deck features classic mid-century space exploration illustrations, including sleek rocket ships, clean-cut space men, and outrageous space monsters.




Here are closeups of some of the coolest cards:

    Cool art. I was wondering if I could upload this pictures to Boardgamegeek so people can see more of this game in its entry.
    Thanks!
