Topps - US - Giant Movie Pin Ups (1981)

Image

Rather than being proper cards, the Giant Movie Pin-ups were actually folded posters sold similarly to trading cards. Each folded poster was in a single wrapper, and there were a total of twelve pin-ups to collect. Two of these were Star Wars related, earning them a place on this site. Each packet also contained the requisite piece of Topps gum. It's actually quite interesting to see the range of movies featured in the pin-ups collection, as it would seem that the pin-ups were possibly geared more toward older teens rather than young kids. A checklist for the collection is below. I will be adding a scan for the wrapper and box as soon as I'm able.
