Review: 1992-93 Clark Bun Mario Lemieux

Three 3-by-3 card set of Super Mario

1992-93 Clark Bun Mario Lemieux #1

This miniscule set contains three unnumbered cards of Pittsburgh Penguins superstar Mario Lemieux. Each card measures 3″ by 3″. The cards were packed with Clark’s “Mario Bun” candy bars, which were sold in Canada in 1993.

Card design
The front of each card has a photo of Mario Lemieux, along with the new (for the time) Penguins logo, the logo for Bun candy cars and a facsimile autograph. The design is simplistic and the photos are a bit blurry, giving this small set an almost “eighties” feel.

1992-93 Clark Bun Mario Lemieux #3 (back)Stats & info
All three cards contain Lemieux’s biographical stats (height, weight, born, shoots and acquired). However, each one does feature different information. One card has a black and white headshot of Lemieux as well as his career statistics through 1991-92 on the back. Another card lists his honors and awards, while the last card has a paragraph summarizing his accomplishments.

Final Rating: 3 out of 5If you like Mario Lemieux, this is worth picking up. The set does not sell for much ($3 to $5) and is a unique oddball item of one of the game’s greatest players.

Here are images of each card (front and back).

  1. Yummmm–those little candy bars were okay and you got free cards–Sal, you have a lot of oddball stuff same as me–

  2. i have a full set uncut and never packed singed each card individually with an handwritten signature and handed to me by Mario himself…wonder what thats worth

  3. I used to buy and eat these delicious candy bars. I have several cards but they are in a box somewhere and I am not sure if I have the full set.

    1. Thanks for reading. Let me know if you figure out which of the three cards you need. I have a few doubles somewhere.
