    Package Rarest AQUAMAN card?

    Which Aquaman card is the rarest to find? Is it 1976 or 1979 purple card? Or the yellow super man card? Or the generic red-card? (Figure included)

    yes.

    But what if FrankenAquaman is included? I think it is probably more rare -though not as valuable.

    IDK, that yellow card is personally worthless to me except to open it for minty contents.

    Holcomb mentions all four cards and opines, "The Copr. 1979 card is the scarcest 2nd-issue card, with the possible exception of the generic Red card. A 1979 purple card is even more rare compared to packaging for other characters in the WGSH line." He goes on to mention the unique thinner cardstock and smaller, thinner bubble on this issue.

    I'm not sure where the Kresge card fits into this, evidently more common than second-issue cards?

    I've seen way more yellow cards than purple cards.

    Twenty-odd years ago Anthony Belasco was selling those like popcorn.
