Ugly Stickers (1973-74) Topps - 1973/1974 [tan backs] Topps - 1976 [white backs]
Notes: The 1973/1974 series followed on the successful 1965 Ugly Stickers series. This time, 55 different sticker images were printed on 110 unnumbered stickers, with two variation names for each picture. Each name variation was found only with stickers with a single (" * ") or double (" ** ") star next to the Topps copyright. Sticker backs were a single sheet of tan paper, and stickers were die-cut. It is difficult to distinguish the series of 1973 stickers from those issued only in 1974. The 1973 wrappers were green, serial #0-453-85-01-3, with the instructions "1 bend on crease - 2 Stick to anything!". The 1974 edition also contained 12 puzzle-pieces, printed on cardboard cards. The green wrappers, serial # 0-482-21-01-4, bear alternating ads: "Lotsa friends means lotsa Bazooka"; "Bazooka has it all"; and "Be prepared". Wrapper states that in Canada, the material was made and distributed under license by O-Pee-Chee Canada. Topps reissued the series in 1976, this time with white-back stickers and no puzzle pieces. These stickers were identical, except that they were backed with white cardboard instead of tan paper. The green wrapper design is the same as for 1973/1974, but bears different ads and states "Made & printed in U.S.A. by Topps Chewing Gum, Inc. for Trebor Sharps Ltd., Maidstone"; with serial # 0-485-21-01-6.
