Set Comments

Cards from the 1969 Planet of the Apes set are easily confused with cards from the 1975 Planet of the Apes set (also produced by Topps.)

1969 cards feature images from the film (and not from the TV show.) Conversely, cards from the 1975 TV show feature images from the show and not from the original film.

Also, by turning the card over one can instantly tell the difference. Cards from the 1969 set feature text and a simple illustration. Cards from the 1975 set feature text and "puzzle piece" images.

Important note:  On the reverses of both the 1969 Planet of the Apes set and the 1975 Planet of the Apes set, one will find the notice "Copyright 1967". This copyright notice pertains to the actual film and not the year the card was released.
