1978 Arnold Harris : DC Super Heroes Bread Stickers


A DC Super Heroes sticker-card set was distributed by various brands of bread in 1978. Each specially marked loaf of bread contained one sticker-card. According to the biography Dick Giordano: Changing Comics, One Day at a Time by Michael Eury, the entire series of 30 sticker-cards was illustrated by Dick Giordano.

The stickers are slightly smaller than a standard trading card at approximately 2.25 x 3 inches. The stickers were produced by Arnold Harris Associates Inc. in Cherry Hill, NJ. Sets are branded with logos from Langendorf, Sunbeam, or Taystee. Stickers without a bread logo were distributed by Schmidt's Blue Ribbon and various other brands. It is common for the paper to become stained from bread oil and humidity.

Superman is prominently featured in this series with an appearance on nine different stickers.
