It is not just Harris comics who have produced Trading Cards with images of Vampirella. Some of these are "one-offs", some are part of other sets. But they all feature Vampirella in one way or another ...
Wacky Packages - 1975
Wacky Packages are a series of trading cards featuring parodies of American consumer products. The cards were produced by the Topps Company beginning in 1967, usually in a sticker format. The original series sold for two years, and the concept
proved popular enough that it has been revived every few years since.
Jay Lynch's original rough version finally saw light of day as "Umbrella", which may well be the first ever Vampirella Trading Card.
3's Company Sticker Card
Another very early (trading) card to have Vampirella in it.
In card #40 of the 1978 Three's Company television sitcom sticker-cards, the girls are studying a "girlie" magazine's centre fold pages. The phony title of the magazine is Living Love, but the cover is pure, Warren Vampirella!
This card was originally given away with Wizard magazine, but was also distributed as part of the Scarlet Legion membership goodies for a while.
It is also available as a limited edition of 1,500 signed by Louis Small Jr., complete with Certificate of Authority.
Pantha Promo Cards
To mark the launch of the new Pantha series (first announced in 1997) Harris issued these two Pantha promo cards.
Unfortunately, the series was cancelled ...
Mike Kaluta cards
Mike Kaluta had the distinction of creating all four covers for the seminal Morning In America series.
In 1994, FPG produced a card set featuring the work of Mike Kaluta, and these are four of the cards from that set (28, 30, 34 and 36). It is well worth getting hold of the complete set, not just for these four cards but for all of the examples of his
To help promote the Mike Kaluta series of trading cards FGP issued an oversize promo card (#18).
I think these went to dealers and comic shops to put on display.
This FGP promo card was available in both perforated and imperforate varieties.
The perforated card had a perforation on the bottom, presumably so it could be stitched in to a magazine or similar?
FPG also produced a general purpose card to promote all of it's artists featured in the 1995 Colossal Cards Series II sets. on one side Vampirella by Mike Kaluta and art by David
Cherry on the other.
This FGP promo card (#27) was
also available in both perforated and imperforate varieties.
The perforated card had a perforation on the right hand side.
Frank Frazetta Card
This is the reverse of card #42 from the Frazetta II Trading Cards set issued by Comic Images in 1992.
This card confirms that it was Trina Robbins who was responsible for the design of Vampirella's costume.
Hero Illustrated card
Hero Illustrated magazine included an H-5 promo card with their November 1993 issue.
This is a card that is getting increasingly rare.
Vampires and Vixens mail in card
Don Paresi's 1994 Vampires and Vixens set of trading cards had a special mail in offer of a "nude" Vampirella card. To get the card you would have had to purchased a box of cards for $35 to get the coupon and then paid an extra $2.50
for postage costs.
The cards come in two flavours, signed and unsigned. The original mail in offer was for the unsigned card, but of late Don Paresi has been selling these cards, signed by him on the back, via eBay. As a consequence, the unsigned card has gained
greater rarity value than the signed one!
Though I am not a fan of nude Vampirella artwork, I have to say that I think that Don Paresi has done the nudity rather tastefully.
Barbara Leigh Cards
The Original "Vampirella" Barbara Leigh Limited Edition (only 1,000) autographed collector card.
Each card is individually signed by Barbara Leigh in blue ink and they are obtainable from her web site at $25.00 each.
Steve Woron Cards
To celebrate their tenth birthday, the illustration Studio issued a trading card set to celebrate the art of Steve Woron.
Not known for his depictions of Vampirella, Steve only had one card with her image, but it is a beauty.
You can get these now and again on eBay in both a signed and an unsigned version.
Vampirella Revisited Chrome Cards
Issued in the year 2000 this small set of cards features some of the modern classic covers from recent Vampirella issues given a new lease of life with a chromium finish. Only 1,500 sets were made.
In the flash animations, click on a card (or use the slider) to centre it
then click it again to view the front and back of the card full size in a new window.
