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.
