Topps Superman: The Movie trading card packet (series 1) (1978)

1978ToppsSupermancardpack

This is an unopened packet of Superman: The Movie trading cards.  Produced by Topps in 1978, the entire set of series one cards totaled seventy-seven and also came with great silver “foil” stickers.  On the backs of some of the cards were sections of larger images that, when placed together, created a larger image from the film.  The packet contains ten trading cards, one sticker, and still contains the stick of bubble gum.

Oh what memories I have of collecting the cards from this movie!  The waxed wrapper, showing a stylized version of Christopher Reeve’s photo as Superman, really popped against the black background.  This was the first time that I realized that there were other scenes from the film that were not included in the final cut.  One example was card number seventeen featuring the Kryptonian Military Police Officer.
