2013 Topps 75th Anniversary


The 2013 Topps 75th Anniversary trading card set was released on December 11, 2013. The series reprints iconic non-sport releases from the history of Topps. Hobby boxes contain 24 packs of 8 cards. There are 8 boxes in each case. Each box guarantees three "Pop Culture Autograph" cards.
The 100-card base set is printed on vintage card stock reminiscent of Topps sets released prior to 1991. Parallel variations are printed on a contemporary white card. There is one "Rainbow Foil" parallel found in each pack. Randomly inserted "Diamond Anniversary" variants are numbered to 75 copies. Approximately 1:224 packs contain a "Modern Gloss" parallel numbered to 10. Four different printing plates are randomly inserted for each card. A sealed 1/1 blank-back parallel was sold separately by the Topps Vault.
Superman appears on three cards in this series:
Card #45 depicts George Reeves from The Adventures of Superman television series. "Metropolis' Hero" was first released as part of the 1965-66 Topps Superman Cards set.

Card #74 features Christopher Reeve from the 1978 Superman film. "Night Flight" was released in the first series of Superman: The Movie cards.

"Test Card" #1 reprints "Blasting the Python" from the 1966 Superman in the Jungle test set. The series was penciled by Al Plastino. Inks and color separations were done by Norman Saunders. The 1966 series failed to grab consumer attention in American test markets. In 1968, Superman in the Jungle was released in the UK by A&BC Gum, a British subsidiary of Topps.
Each box also contains one gold-foil stamped buyback insert of an original card previously released by Topps.
Buybacks from Superman: The Movie and Superman II have been observed. The precise number of Superman buyback cards stamped by Topps is currently unlisted.
