The Rubik's Deluxe Cube. ITCs version with tiles instead of stickers.

The Rubik's Deluxe cube was produced in 1980, but not for long. It used thick plastic tiles instead of stickers (although some had stickers on them, and are very rare), and the mechanism was considered superior in it's day. It is pretty rare and they usually command high prices, due to their rarity. They only used the plastic container packaging. Three versions were produced. The only difference in the versions is the logo.

Version A: Black logo on yellow side.

Version B: Gold logo on red side.

Version C: Gold logo on blue side

*Note: The versions above had tiles on them. The stickered version looks no different than a standard 80's cube.
