The Struggle for the Universe (Universets Erobring) was released in 1969 by Dandy Chewing Gum in Vejle, Denmark. The 200-card series is printed in English and Danish, roughly translated from German text by Werner Büdeler. The collection reprints identical images and descriptions from Kampf um den Weltraum, published in 1967 by Heinerle-Hugo Hein.

Card #195 features an Apollo 11 lunar landing mission crew photo from May 1969: Commander Neil Armstrong, Command Module Pilot Michael Collins, and Lunar Module Pilot Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin.
