Comic Book Heroes (Marvel Comics Group) Topps - 1975
Notes: Stickers and checklist cards can be found with two different types of cardboard. "Variation 1" has a thin white cardboard backing, while "Variation 2" stickers have an tan paper backing. Both are found with either "*" or "**" markings near the copyright. Checklists feature either dull-colored text. Some people believe that one of these set variations was intended as a market test with limited distribution, followed by more printing for a wider market. But opinions vary on which one; stickers of the two varieties are relatively similar in quantities. So beware, if you are trying to fill an incomplete set, to specify the variation you seek. I have seen "sets" that include only 40 character stickers plus the checklists, omitting the two character stickers with alternate titles. Note that there are other variations, mostly for placement or style of the copyright markings, and undoubtedly there are others that haven't been reported. All observed checklist cards have an error with "Hulk-2" listed twice and no "Hulk-1." If there are variation cards that corrected the mistake, please tell. Thanks much to Steve Lillard for the variation/test set information and titles, to Carlos Aranda-Díaz for the clue-in on the alternate titles, to Mollie for adding to the lore of the asterisks, and to Richard Law Orloski for tracking down a lot of the variation info!
