1999 DuoCards Yellow Submarine Checklist

1999 DuoCards Yellow Submarine trading cards were released to coincide with the reissue of The Beatles animated classic.

The 72-card set of cards is devoted to the artwork of the Yellow Submarine film with each card featuring a still image from the movie with no borders or captions. The reverse of each card, set on a yellow backdrop and character watermarks, includes a small, round-cropped, image from the movie as well as extensive notes by famed Beatles historian Mark Lewisohn.

The base set of 72 cards is the primary focus of this series but DuoCards did include six chromium cards. The reverse of the chromium cards are set on a black backdrop and still include text by Mark Lewisohn. There are also two promo cards available with slightly different designs on the back side of the card and text promoting the, then, upcoming release of this card set.

In all there are 80 cards to be collected relating to this series with full base sets appearing frequently online and chromium cards being more difficult to acquire. Although the promo cards are not an official part of the set they are widely available on the trade market and are notable for having the thumbnail image on the reverse cropped square as opposed to round as it appeared on base set cards.
