The book does say that the original series of cards was not a big seller, and I can confirm that because I remember that eventually they sold the cards in clear-wrapped sets of ten. So, Topps must have had a lot of them that didn't sell in packages of five with the stick of gum, and then tried to sell as many as they could.
I loved the movie so much that I eventually bought more than three hundred of them, and I still have every one of them to this day, including an original wrapper and the counter box they were sold out of.
By the way, one notable mistake is on page 247 for puzzles F and G. The top four cards are reversed between the puzzles. So Galen's head is shown on Urko's body and vise versa. They need to fix that for later pressings.
The four bonus cards are for the new series of prequels. See the photos and the ones comparing a bonus card with a 1969 card.
Enjoy the fun! (Note: I didn't buy this book from Amazon, but am choosing to review here anyway).
