From the pages of comic books to the small screen of black and white televisions, by the mid-1960s, the story of Superman had taken on different forms. 1966 Topps Superman trading cards capture the TV series starring George Reeves. The Adventures of Superman aired in the 1950s, but the cards came out as reruns were showing up in syndication. Variations can keep completists busy, although a basic set shouldn't be too expensive for those not overly concerned about condition.

1966 Topps Superman card fronts use black and white images. Some are horizontal, others are vertical. The plain design has a white border with a caption on the front. Back are a little more detailed. George Reeves as Superman stands on one side of the card in a classic Superman pose. Running along the top are the caption and the card number, which is placed inside an outline of the Superman shield. A large box takes up most of the back's real estate and is filled with a caption that matches the front image.

Here's where things get a little more complicated. The first 44 cards can be found with three different variations. Two of them have orange backgrounds. The first has an ad for the show on the bottom, reading, "Watcher Superman on T.V." and copyright info riding up the side of the card. A second variation has the copyright on the bottom of the card without the show mention. The rarest back variation are sometimes called "proof backs." That's because they do not have the colored background. Cards 45 to 66 have puzzle pieces on the back. They do not have variations.

Ryan's collecting origins began with winter bike rides to the corner store, tossing a couple of quarters onto the counter and peddling home with a couple packs of O-Pee-Chee hockey in his pocket. Today, he continues to build sets, go after inserts with cool technologies, chase Montreal Expos and finish off his John Jaha master collection.
