Pocket Heroes Red Cards

Red Card Checklist

Superman, Batman, Robin, Hulk, Spiderman, Zod, Jor El and Luthor.

Red cards are thought to be the earliest release in the Pocket Heroes line and the most commonly found. There is tremendous surplus in this line, MOC examples can still be found averaging from $20 for the lesser characters to $80 for the main heroes. Robin is the least common. It is not uncommon to find beautiful  unpunched examples of red cards, as there was  a small NY area warehouse find in the late 1990s.

Shazam, Penguin and Joker are featured on the DC red card artwork, they were not released as pocket heroes but did see release in Mego’s Comic Action Heroes line (1976-1978). Zod, Luthor and Jor El are featured on the white cards but have not been found.
