1979 Topps Moonraker Trading Cards

Product Details

User Rating:

Moonraker might not be the most critically lauded James Bond film, but it certainly had its share of commercial tie-ins. This includes the first mainstream set of trading cards since Roger Moore took over the reigns of the lead role. 1979 Topps Moonraker trading cards showcase the film with 99 cards and 22 stickers.

The base set stands out with bold blue borders. An inner yellow frame holds in an action shot. Understandably, most center on James Bond, however villains like Drax, Jaws and Chang all appear as well. At the bottom, the frame curves up to create a space for the card's caption. Backs are blue. Features include an illustration of James Bond in his space suit and a rocket. A short write-up is in a yellow box.

Stickers are die-cut like other similar inserts from the era. The first five are strictly character portraits. The remaining 17 have the Moonraker title added to go with an action shot from the film. Stickers, which fall one per pack, have blank backs.

1979 Topps Moonraker remains readily available. Singles, packs and full boxes are all somewhat common and affordable. The set was included in 2013 Topps 75th, a historical look at the company's entertainment releases. Besides a card in the base set, Roger Moore (James Bond) and Richard Kiel (Jaws) both have autographs.

My question is…was there a difference at all between the Topps ’79 Moonraker stickers vs. the O-Pee-Chee Stickers?
