Superman Cards Topps - 1966
Notes: Two main varieties are seen for the backs of cards 1-44: orange with the caption "Watch Superman on T.V."; and orange without this caption at the bottom. Cards 45-66 were puzzle pieces and were indistinguishable between the two distributions. A 44-card test set with a white background on card backs was issued earlier and is quite scarce. Reports say that there were numerous short-prints and extra-prints in the regular series, complicating the process of completing sets. Thanks much to Carlos Aranda-Díaz for the checklist! Further information and scans of the three varieties are posted at the Good Stuff Cards website. American Card Catalog reference is R710-34.
