1976 Topps Marvel Super Heroes StickersBrand: Marvel
1976 Topps Marvel Super Heroes Stickers is a simple set that highlights the many corners of the Marvel Universe with corny one-liners and dated humor. The fun set is a direct follow-up to 1975 Topps Comic Book Heroes.
The 1976 Topps Marvel Super Heroes Stickers checklist has 40 different characters. All are unnumbered. However, they do have the name of the featured hero or villain for easy identification. Each sticker has a die-cut image in the center that is surrounded by a thick black border. Rather than a traditional caption, characters have a speech bubble that comes with a gag that goes against the tone of most of the comics they're representing. Most of these jokes are taken from the pulse of the day. As a result, many are date or work best as a mid-70s time capsule.
Six stickers have variations. The following cards can be found with two different captions: The Hulk, Loki, Luke Cage, Conan, Hercules and Volstagg.
1976 Topps Marvel Super Heroes Stickers also has a set of nine puzzle cards. When put together, they form the cover of Conan the Barbarian #1. On the reverse is a checklist. These are similar to the Fantastic Four puzzle cards found in 1975 Topps Comic Book Heroes.
While not quite as popular as the previous year's set, 1976 Topps Marvel Super Heroes Stickers still has a decent following. Individual cards are relatively inexpensive. Professionally graded versions have grown in popularity in recent years.
