1976 Marvel Super Hero Stickers

Not all Marvel trading cards take the serious route. Today, the vast majority do, centering more on action. But 1976 Marvel Super Hero Stickers, which were made by Topps, come from a different time when the super hero genre was in a very different place.

The 40-card checklist in the main set all feature one character with classic artwork. While they're all posed, there's no scene or even a backdrop beyond the die-cut black border around the outside of the sticker part.

But don't let their plain nature fool you. There's plenty of corny jokes and puns. That's where the levity comes in. Rather than simply have the characters on their own, each sticker card has a speech bubble to go with it. Much of it is in the so-bad-it's-good vein.

The formula is the same as the one used for 1975 Marvel Comic Book Heroes. In fact, they're so similar, this could be seen as an unofficial Series 2.

And while the main checklist has 40 cards, a handful of them do have variations with different captions.

Each pack of 1976 Marvel Super Hero Stickers comes with a piece of a Conan the Barbarian puzzle. These have checklists on the back.

As one of the earlier Marvel trading card products, 1976 Marvel Super Hero Stickers remain popular today. Prices are still reasonable but they're not cheap either.
