Happy 2010 intrepid readers!
Continuing on with last year's final post, presented are two more Topps prototypes provided by Scott Gaynor.
First up is another stab at a Punchout game:
And following we have an in-house presentation for baseball mini stickers:
These were probably produced around 1976, as evidenced by the player selection and team affiliations and I have to think they were developed together as the similarities are many.
This design of each eventually looks to have made its way in a modified format onto a product called Superstar Standups, sold by Topps in 1991 and having candy within. Surprisingly, these are not all that easy to find these days. Here is a scan I nabbed from Ebay, showing the 1991 product:
I remember this set from 1991 and recall the candy being pretty tasty! These come in both clear and colored containers. At least one type was a test but I am not certain which and have not extended my research into the 1990's in any event, although there was a lot of innovation at the time by Topps.
