Campeones De La Justicia (which translates to Champions of Justice) is a trading card series released in Brazil in the 1970s. The set is made up of 270 cards, with the trading cards containing a number and the name of the image featured. The set contains a variety of comics book characters, including Mandrake the Magician, Batman, Superman, Aquaman, Thor, Tarzan, Turok and more.

A 20 page album was produced to display the 270 trading cards, which were glued in a designated spot within the album by the owner. The front covers of the album as can be seen below, amongst a variety of other characters.

The Phantom was featured in the series under the title of ‘El Fantasma’. The Phantom and characters within the Phantom’s storyline are featured in the series on 3 trading cards, numbers 94, 95 and 96. The Phantom, Diana Palmer and Rex are featured on these 3 cards. Below we see 2 of the 3 cards plus the page where the trading cards are to be placed, with the page titled ‘Campeones De La Selva’, which translates to ‘Jungle Champions’.

The cards are designed with a printed boarder which looks like a postage stamp.
