1968 Superman in the Jungle (A&BC)

he 1968 Superman in the Jungle set was released by A&BC in the UK. However, prior to that, Topps provided a limited release test set. The US Topps cards are slightly larger than their sister cards in the UK. The set consists of 66 cards and a 16 piece puzzle designed by Norm Saunders.

In this article, I’ll provide you with card details, values, the checklist and more.

What Do the Cards Look Like?

The front of the cards feature a full colored image of Superman carrying out his adventures in the African jungles. You will find a white border around the image and the title in a black box.

1968 Superman in the Jungle cards had a green back with a jungle them outlining the title and main description. You’ll find the card’s number in the top corner. Also, some cards had a blank back.

There was also a 16 piece jigsaw puzzle that made up a picture of Superman fighting a lion.

Value of 1968 Superman in the Jungle

The value of 1968 Superman in the Jungle cards range, based on condition. However, a common ungraded card will typically go for around $3-7 a piece. The first and last card of the set will go for a little more. You can pick up an entire set for between $200-300.

Professionally graded cards will go for a little more:

  • PSA 7 (NM): $10-15
  • PSA 8 (NM-MT): $18-20
  • PSA 9 (Mint): $30-35

Again, the first and last card of the 1968 Superman in the Jungle set will go for a bit more.

The real value is in the test set released by Topps. This is an incredibly rare set. While no one could really predict how to price these, I would estimate a complete set to be worth around $10,000-15000. Single cards will probably go for around $225 to $300, while the puzzle pieces will go for a bit more.
