Not everyone carried one of these in their wallet. I did. Back in the '60s my best friend wrote the studio that produced Man from U.N.C.L.E. and got us each official UNCLE cards and this photo. It was a big surprise when it arrived in the mail. We were big UNCLE fans and carried on our long distance friendship through lots of mail, letters written in "code." Let's just say our parents were referred to as THRUSH. It wasn't a difficult code to break
For years I carried this card in my wallet, long after UNCLE was over. I always thought how interesting it would be for the police to find my body with this as identification hidden behind all of my real cards. I would be listed as "strange woman dead" in the local papers. For the past thirty years it's been stuck in a drawer.

Ah yes, Mr. Waverly, Napoleon Solo, and Illya Kuryakin. Illya in black turtleneck and slacks had me all a twitter. Eventually it reached the point where I just prayed they'd end the show. By that time I was interested in Laugh-In and could have cared less about UNCLE. I'd actually enjoy seeing some reruns of each show. Oh to be a teenager again in the '60s.
