Description

    1966 Topps "Marvel Flyers" Complete Set (12), Wrappers (5) and Display Box. Off of the printed page and into the sky, the 12-piece "Marvel Flyers" series was the most fun a kid could have with his favorite comic book hero. For 10-cents you bought an approx. 9-1/4" x 4-1/4" pack with three pieces that could be slotted together to create an actual flying airplane. Each 3-piece flyer came with a body section, a main wing and a tail wing, and was emblazoned with the colorful image of one of 12 different Marvel characters. Superman aside, it must have been much more fun looking up into the sky to see The Hulk, Iron Man, Daredevil, Capt. America, Thor, Thing, Dr. Doom, Angel, Human Torch, Wasp, Spider-Man and the Sub-Mariner zipping across the wild blue yonder. In what has to been a pure fluke, considering these are toys to be played with, each of the complete set of flyers has never been used! Most of the die-cut slots for wing mounting are still unpunched! The wrappers present nicely but all have damage at one end from being opened; the very scarce display box presents at the Excellent-plus level with light creasing to the top panel. With a few minor spots of wear to the delicate Styrofoam the flyers are all NM-MT, if not Mint. A really cool item to have that also makes for a great display. When was the last time that you saw a complete set of these hard to find beauties?
