Argentinian Pepsi Album - 1979

F.O.A.M.er Ramiro, who hails from Argentina, sent me these amazing shots of an Argentinian Pepsi Album from 1979.

Way back in 2006, I posted an Aquaman bottlecap that I had bought on eBay. I never knew what it was before; now I see that it was part of this album, where each bottlecap was numbered and featured a different character pictured. The sheet featured corresponding numbers where you were supposed to place each of the caps:

From the pics Ramiro sent me, it seems there were two games--one for DC characters, one for Marvel. I don't recall ever seeing any sort of thing like this growing up, so maybe it was exclusive to South America?

In any case, I love learning about some vintage item I never knew existed. Thanks Ramiro!

Ey! that was one of the FIRST things I have comic book related! :D

I have more pics of that and I also have the Marvel version that go out on that time too! :)

I have MANY others Argentinians superhero vintage related pictures of things that I used to have (and some that I still have!)

Very cool, never heard of them, either. :)

Wow that would've been cool to collect - some pretty rare characters in the mix to... The Falcon? Commissioner Gordon?
