1965 Fleer Hogan’s Heroes Trading CardsBrand: Fleer
1965 Fleer Hogan's Heroes trading cards capture a lot of the wit and visual comedy of the TV classic. It also has a similar look to a set released a year earlier by another manufacturer.
Col. Hogan and the show's other allied WWII prisoners of war star in the set alongside such goofy and incompetent German officers as Col. Klink and Sgt. Schultz. Card fronts are on the basic side with a black-and-white photo from the show or an on-set promo shot. A caption is at the bottom, usually a corny one-liner.
The Hogan's Heroes title is in red at the bottom of the image. A red German helmet holds the card number at the top. These are the only uses of color in the set.
1965 Fleer Hogan's Heroes cards backs are all puzzle pieces. They have no additional text or information.
This set is strikingly like the 1964 Donruss Addams Family trading cards. Although the shows are different, the overall design is the same down to the red highlights. But that hasn't hindered the popularity of either set.
1965 Fleer Hogan's Heroes is a pricey set to put together. Even off-condition singles sell for $5 and up. Top-condition cards professionally graded by a reputable company like PSA reach into the hundreds.
This isn't the only time Hogan's Heroes appeared on trading cards. It has numerous cards in 1998 Inkworks TV's Coolest Classics. It's an anthology set of sorts covering other shows like The Brady Bunch, The Beverly Hillbillies and Get Smart.
