Rogues Memorabilia

This is something I only recently learned about.  A 1976 DC stamp set made by Celebrity Stamps, which includes a handful of Rogues.  There were actually six sets (Flash, Supervillains, Batman, Captain Marvel, Wonder Woman, and Superman), and one big album for the stamps to go in.

These were simply collectibles, not actual stamps for mailing, but they’re very neat.  Some of the art is clearly taken directly from old comics and promotional art, and some might be original (or at least I don’t recognize it).  There was also a Marvel set.

I don’t own this (I’d like to), but it seems likely that anyone seeking to purchase it will have to spend a fair bit of money.

From 1986, this villain-centric RPG book contains character bios and scenarios for the characters to play.  The premise is about Goldface gathering villains — including several Rogues, but not limited to them — to become the crime boss of Central City.  It also contains maps of Central City, and while they can’t really be considered canon, they’re an interesting bit of detail for fans.
It’s a rare piece of memorabilia with Golden Glider in it, which makes it particularly noteworthy.  And there’s some original art by Carmine Infantino (he did the cover and a little bit of interior artwork), which is also of note.

From Junk Food, this officially licenced t-shirt was released in 2010.  Like a lot of superhero t-shirts these days, it’s purposely faded to give it a vintage look.  And it’s very difficult to find now, unfortunately.

Out in 2012, this is volume two in a series of RPG sourcebooks.  It contains alphabetized biographies and gaming stats for a variety of DC characters, including quite a few Rogues.  
Some Rogues have shorter entries than others; the bios/stats for the Top and newer Rogues like Tar Pit and Girder are abbreviated and contained under the entry “The Rogues” rather than in their alphabetical position.  James Jesse is mentioned in Axel Walker’s entry, but doesn’t get any stats or much of a write-up.  The two Mirror Masters share an entry and each gets a biography, but seem to share stats.
The books are published by the gaming company Green Ronin.

The 1977 DC calendar doesn’t have a lot of Rogues content, but Abra Kadabra appears on the cover and there’s a bit of Grodd and the Rogues as part of the September pin-up.

DC used to publish annual calendars back in the 1970s, which featured new art from professional artists each month and fun things like trivia and puzzles.  

This particular calendar is from 1976, and is included here because a bunch of Rogues appeared as the April pin-up.

Incidentally, if you’ve ever seen the list of DC characters’ birthdays, it comes from this calendar.

Honestly, the most terrible thing about this panel is the revelation that Piper’s underwear is green with white polka dots and Roscoe wears yellow stripes on his undergarments.  These guys should not be allowed to dress themselves.

A classic reblog of Rogues and their embarrassing underwear choices.
