Michael Jackson (Series 1) MJJ Productions / Topps - 1984 (English) MJJ Productions / O-Pee-Chee - 1984 (English/French)
Notes: Considerable changes were made after the first print run, involving text on cards 1 2 3 4 5 7 8 10 12 14 17 18 21 22 25 27 31 32 and photos for cards 10 and 18. Cards do not show the Topps name, just the copyright notice for MJJ Productions, Inc. The first (recalled) print run cards are considerably more scarce and valuable and are commonly called the "red lipped" or "red lip" series; the corrections were incorporated in the O-Pee-Chee edition. The cards (without stickers) and stickers (without cards) were also issued separately as factory-sealed sets. Thanks much to Rob D'Arcy for much of the information above! Sean Wright reports (thanks!) that the "corrected" cards have dark pink card backs, falling short of "red" from the first print run. Puzzle piece backs for the original run of the stickers were glossy, but were matte-finish in the reissue. Original packs had exaggerated red coloring for Michael's lips, but this was changed for later printings. Proof cards and other variants have been released to the aftermarket by The Topps Vault.
Topps Box: 36 packs of 3 cards + 3 stickers + gum sticks (various wrappers). Common sets: approx. 3.27 per box if collation were perfect.
