Marvel Super Hero Cards (1991)

Hulk #53

The only Hulk villain in the set… Absorbing Man

 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.

Hulk vs Thing!

Hulk vs Wolverine! This looks like Larsen's work - but I am not sure...

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.

Hulk vs Leader!

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!

  1. Mr.Hulk_Smashin'!

    last one is an overload of Hulk-ness!

  2. Loving this set of cards. Hulk vs Thing was a brutal battle. Always enjoyed seeing them square off. I always wondered why they did Hulk vs Wolverine and Hulk vs Thor direct-to-DVD movies but never did Hulk vs The Thing. It would rock!

  3. Cool, these cards are awesome I have the set too, and love these old cards, and the power bars on the back are a neat little thing for these cards that I liked but they are out of date now since it was 91 when they came out, but still very neat.

  4. oh above, I mean the out of date part, is the power bars, cause they are either stonger or weaker now

  5. Hey Ry, long time. That is Larson on the Wolverine card, and Arthur Adams on every other one minus the Leader. Adams did 75% of those cards in the early nineties, one of the best at pin-ups.
