1976 Donruss Bionic Woman Trading CardsBrand: Donruss
1976 Donruss Bionic Woman trading cards try to convey the beauty and strength brought to the forefront of the show. But like a lot of the card maker's entertainment sets at the time, the results are mixed.
The 44-card checklist uses images from the show. The design is basic with the image surrounded by a white border. There's also a caption explaining the action (and many need it) that's sandwiched between the card number and the show's logo. Card backs are all puzzle pieces.
The Bionic Woman came along when it required a lot of imagination to make special effects have some semblance of reality. When you speed it up for film, it can be a little bit easier. However, with the stills these trading cards bring, the results are laughable in many instances. Whether it's an obvious stunt double or a cheesy prop, most of the 1976 Donruss Bionic Woman trading cards don't bring the same level of excitement as watching the show on TV back in the day.
It's not too tough to find 1976 Donruss Bionic Woman trading cards still today. Singles, sets, packs and boxes can all still be found without a lot of effort. Given the age, values remain reasonable as well.
For a more modern spin on the adventures of Jaime Summers, there's 2013 Rittenhouse The Complete Bionic Collection. The set combines both this show and the one it spun out of, The Six Million Dollar Man. It also includes lots of autographs.
