The American Topps cards were never formally released into the collectibles market which is surprising given the popularity of Land of the Giants at the time. The A&BC cards did get released in the UK and were a very popular collectible. Whilst the card fronts differed between the US and British card sets, the card backs were the same for both sets of cards.

The different copyright statements along the right edge of the backs of each card read:

Topps cards measured 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches whereas the British A&BC cards were smaller at 2 3/16 x 3 3/16 inches.

In terms of how much to pay for Land of the Giants Topps and A&BC cards, A&BC cards are much easier to find and can be purchased for as little as a couple of dollars. Topps card values will depend on their PSA grade. The higher the PSA grade, the more the card is worth. Lower grade Land of the Giants Topps cards, graded at 3 or 4, have sold on Ebay for around $20-$30 in the past year, whereas grade 8 or 9 Topps cards can sell for upwards of $200 and beyond. Land of the Giants Topps film positives (black and white film used in the printing process) have also appeared on Ebay and in 2011, several sold for approximately $20-$30 each.
