Love Initials
Topps - 1968

Love Initials
AB&C Gum - 1970

Mod Initials (regular and test issues)
Topps - 1972

Notes: The artwork for these sets was identical, painted by Norman Saunders. 
The 1968 and 1972 sets featured white-back peel-off stickers, while the 1970 
U.K. AB&C stickers were slightly smaller tan-back stickers, but only 84 
variations in the backgrounds to the initials have been reported. (This could mean 
that the U.K. set had extra prints for some items, or a few of the variations were 
absent or poorly distributed. For quite a few years, the other series were mistakenly 
tagged as 84-sticker sets too.) Thanks much to David Paul for the list(s), partly 
based on careful research by Ron Wilson! We think the years of issue are correct, 
though Topps Vault auction listings for acetate proof sets suggest 1967 for Love 
Initials and 1968 for Mod Initials.
