One thing is for certain – this summer may have been one of the worst to take off of blogging! I have so many NEW things to show you it’s ridiculous! But, like I said before, I will be blogging on a new schedule – not really sure what it’s going to be right now – but a few times a week to be sure. Anyways, let’s get started again! It’s good to be back!
This is one of the sets I was given by my friend Bill. There were about a half a dozen cards missing and a few Holograms – but I plugged those holes just recently. The funny thing is – one of the holograms missing was the Hulk – and base set card#53, also the Hulk, was missing. Art Adams did a lot of the art for this series – and it’s fantastic to look back at them. It also looks like Larsen did some of the art on certain cards.
While I now have a complete set of these cards – I also don’t have any doubles of these – so I am sorry – but I can’t help anyone complete their sets as well. Full sets of these are on the bay for relatively good prices – without the holograms of course. If you want the holograms you’re gonna have to shell out a little extra. The holograms in this set are Spidey, Hulk, Punisher, Doom and Mole Man vs the Fantastic Four. I do have them all – and the Spidey, Doom and Hulk ones are pretty boss.
I think it was a fun set to begin blogging again. The art is especially nice on these compared to some. Check back Friday as I will be posting another set then – one of the Marvel Masterpieces sets! I’ve never been a huge card set collector – and after completing the sets I do have – I must say I now know why! Although – since the invention of ebay it’s pretty easy to finish most set now! I can’t really remember trying to complete sets before – but the newer sets are even harder to complete now… they have specialized base sets that are a pain in the ass to acquire them all!
