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. Many thanks to David Paul for the original 
checklist information!
