Red Skull Pepsi Argentina Bottle Cap (1980)

Keeping with the theme of Marvel's international licensing initiatives, I came across this vintage Pepsi bottle cap from Argentina on eBay while looking for Marvel ephemera from 1980. El Mascara Roja was probably a fearsome sight for Argentines who popped open their Pepsi bottles in 1980 - unless of course they were Nazi officers who escaped to Buenos Aires after World War II. I'm not sure how many Marvel bottle caps were in this series, but Pepsi did a set of bottle caps with 36 DC characters in 1978, so there was likely a comparable set done with Marvel characters in 1980.
