Set Profile

The 1978 Topps Superman The Movie set consists of 165 standard-sized, 2-1/2" by 3-1/2" cards. Released the same year as the motion picture starring Christopher Reeve, Margot Kidder, Gene Hackman, and Jackie Cooper, the set was issued in two series. Series I consists of 77 cards with a white border, with 12 separate stickers; Series II is comprised of 88 cards with a red border, with six separate stickers and 10 separate foil sticker cards. The 165 regular issue cards bear a color picture of a hero or villain (either posed or in a scene) with the appropriate color border. Superman’s familiar “S” appears at the lower left corner with the title of the card along the bottom. Also appearing at the bottom are the DC Comics trademark, the copyright date, and the card number. This Superman set is relatively inexpensive to assemble by fans of the Man of Steel, even in higher grade.
