The 1969 Topps Planet of the Apes Trading Card Set – "Go Ape" Over These ’60s Cards

Plant of the ApesOn February 8, 1968, the original movie Planet of the Apes was released. It became a bit of a cult classic in the science fiction world, spawning sequels and a television series. Since 2000, three more movies have been created. The first one, a Tim Burton film in 2001, was more of a pure remake, while the last two have been prequels – Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011) and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014).
