Captain Nice

Bhob Stewart's INDEX credits Wood solely with "wrapper art" for Topps' CAPTAIN NICE cards which apparently themselves featured actual photos from the short-lived William Daniels TV superhero sitcom. From these examples, though, it looks as though the backs of the cards featured little Bazooka Joe style comic strips. The black and white art looks to be by Wood while the other I'm not so certain. It's possible that different artists contributed. The numbering on the color one would seem to indicate that there were quite a few but that doesn't mean they were on every card. Does anyone have a set of these rarities that they wouldn't mind scanning and sharing with other Wood fans?
