The Phantom Aufkleber/Sticker Sheets were produced by Beiersdorf AG under their Goldi brand, in Germany in 1977. The sticker sheets were fully licensed by King Features Syndicate, with 2 different designs released. They were sold in newsagents and convenience stores and displayed on spinning card racks.
Founded in March 1882, ‘Beiersdorf AG’ is located in Hamburg, Germany and is still in business today. Beiersdorf AG is a German multi-billion, multinational company that manufactures and retails personal-care products and pressure-sensitive adhesives. Beiersdorf AG is organized in two separate business units: Consumer Business and Tesa. The Consumer Business segment focuses on skin care, owning brand names such as ‘Nivea’ and ‘Elastoplast’. The Tesa business unit focus on producing self-adhesive products.
The first sheet produced measures 4” x 7”, the sticker sheet contains 7 Phantom stickers in clear plastic packaging.
A second and larger sheet was produced measuring 6” x 9.5”, the sticker sheet contains 6 Phantom stickers in clear plastic packaging.
As early as the 1960’s through to the late 1980’s, collectible stickers were a global phenomenon. For decades, all age groups have collected stickers, sticker albums and sticker books.
Between 1977 and 1978 a series of packaged multi-purpose sticker sheets were produced that covered a wide variety of subjects with topical interest, which included the Phantom. Below we see a sample of these sticker sheets.
