Wrapped in wax paper, these cards have a lot to 'em.
The official Donkey Kong logo is centered on the top of the
scene, followed by a flaming barrel headed towards Donkey Kong
himself, who stands on a black floor with a picture of the
Beautiful Girl's head smiling, and encircled in his right hand.
Mario is on Donkey Kong's left shoulder winking at the Beautiful
Girl. The ape is pissed. The Topps logo is under Donkey Kong's
left hand, and the words "#1 Video Game" are written out
with large red bold letters within the shape of a white explosion
with a black stroke. Along the bottom of this picture reads in
white print, "3 Rub-Off Cards; 3 Stickers - 1 Stick Bubble
Gum". Along the right side of the whole thing reads in small
black print "(C)1982 Nintendo Of America, Inc."
From the upper left corner reads in black capital print,
"5 cent Bazooka Bubble gum" a package of Topps
Bazooka Bubble Gum appears with a description on the left side written in black large capital print, "It's
the juiciest bubblblowingest bubble gum around. You'll love the
comics and great prizes." Below that on the bottom half of the package reads
out in capital black print, "Topps Chewing Gum, Inc., 'Dureya,
PA 18642 - Made in U.S.A." Below that are the ingredients in
the same print, "Dextrose, corn syrup, gum base, softeners,
natural & artificial flavors, artificial colors & BHT (to
Front Of All Three Scratch Off
See the photographs for a picture of the mazes from all three
levels (the different
colors are pink, blue, and yellow), with Donkey Kong on the top
(still pissed off), the beautiful girl to the right, and Mario
down in the lower left corner. The words "Donkey Kong"
along the top, and "(C) 1982 Nintendo Of America, Inc."
along the right side going vertical in small black capital print.
Of All Three Scratch Off cards:
On the top left corner of the card reads, "Topps How To
Play Donkey Kong", with a picture of Donkey Kong holding the
(I kid you not) sweaty Beautiful Girl who's dress is slipping off
her shoulders while busting out of the arcade game and moving the
analog stick around. Mario is running up to the video game, with
his eyes (presumably) looking up at Donkey Kong. In a double
stroked rounded rectangle, the instructions on how to play the
scratch off game are written out in small black print: "1.
Starting at MARIO, rub off one dot at a time.
2. Move up ladders or across beams, trying to rescue the Beautiful
Girl from DONKEY KONG.
3. If you reach the dot nearest the Beautiful Girl, you have
rescued her and score 100 points.
4. Uncover a prize and gain bonus points.
HAMMER - 20 points
BIRTHDAY CAKE - 50 points
PHONE, UMBRELLA, LUNCHPAIL - 10
How high did you score?
5. Player is out if any combination of 3 fireballs
and barrels is uncovered.
6. Any number of players can play. Take turns. The player with the
who reaches the girl, wins.
7. If all players are out, the one with the highest score
Below the rounded rectangle are two boxes side-by-side with the
words "Your name" under the left one and "Your
score" under the right one, both written out in capital bold
print. On the very bottom of the card reads in small capital black
print, "(C) 1982 Nintendo Of America, Inc." on the left
side, and "Topps chewing gum, Inc." on the right side.
See the photographs for the pictures on the back of the
stickers. Also see them for the pictures on the front, the only
words that are on all three stickers in small capital white print
are, "(C)1982 Nintendo of America Inc." and "PATD.
In case you missed it, the gum is made out of dextrose, corn
syrup, gum base, softeners, natural & artificial flavors,
artificial colors and BHT.
