Fun Cards: 1974 Rookie Rockers (Paul Stanley, Ace Frehley, Peter Criss, Gene Simmons)

1974 Topps KISS Rookie Card

In 1974, KISS’ self-titled debut album was released and generated very little fanfare. “Strutter” and “Deuce” are now considered classics, but it was not until Alive! was released over a year later before the band started to get some recognition. The entire process of recording and mixing the record took less than a month. Notice Paul Stanley’s “Bandit” makeup he wore briefly in 1973 and/or 1974 before settling on the “Starchild” persona.

Watch the band perform “Nothing To Lose,” “Firehouse,” and “Black Diamond” on ABC In Concert in 1974:
