1970 Topps : Comic Cover Stickers


Topps released a 44-piece sticker-card set showcasing DC Comics covers from 1969 and 1970. 
The stickers are the same size of a standard trading card, measuring 2.5 x 3.5 inches. 15 of the cards contain a full panel sticker and 29 are divided into four-panel stickers. Comic Cover Stickers were originally sold in wax packs for 5 cents. Each pack includes a stick of bubble gum.
The cover of Superman #222 (December 1969) is featured on a full panel. The original background color was changed from yellow to orange. The cover was penciled by Curt Swan and inked by Murphy Anderson (Swanderson). The lettering is by Gaspar Saladino.
The sticker cards are copyrighted 1969 by National Periodical Publications, Inc. The stickers are not numbered. Full-panel stickers contain instructions for removing the sticker on the back. Four-panel sticker backs are blank.
Superman appears on ten of the four-panel cover stickers. All four-panel covers were penciled by Curt Swan and inked by Murphy Anderson, with the exception of one by Neal Adams. Superboy and Supergirl also appear on four-panel stickers. All of the cover lettering was done by Gaspar Saladino.
