Stålmannen (Superman) comic - Idrottsstjärnor (Stars of Sport)


1957-59

Idrottsstjärnor (Stars of Sport)
Stålmannen (Superman) comic
Sweden
Unknown number

A swedish collector has sent information about this collection that was intended to be cut out and collected. 24 issues of the comic were published in 1957 and 1958, but only 13 in 1959. It would be great to hear from anyone who can provide further information.

Between 1957 and 1959, the Swedish version of Superman comic book (Stålmannen) featured a series of collectible oversized sport cards on the back cover. The cards were supposed to be cut and collected as a set. The series was called Stars of Sports (Idrottsstjärnor) and included famous Swedish and international athletes from various sports. The size was 13 x 19 cm (5,12 x 7,48 inches). Not every issue featured a card so the total number of the cards issued between 1957-1959 is significantly lower than the total number of Superman comics during the same time period. 
Those issues known to not feature Stars of Sport are indicated by "---".
