Marvel Super Heroes Cards (1992)

#13 Hulk - looking like he would fit well into the Disco scene!

# 76 - Hulk & Wolverine!

I have a bunch of extras of these cards!  This series had some of my favorite artists, Larsen, Kieth, and there were 162 cards in the base set!  Which seems like a lot, but this series showcases the heroes, villians, team ups, storylines, origins… everything!  The Hulk in the set is the merged Hulk – in his brown jumpsuit – not my favorite Hulk to be showcased, but it was the most popular at the time.

#98 - Hulk & Thing

#101 - Abomination!

Abomination also gets a card – dressed in a trenchcoat living in the sewers – with his melted face.  Classic stuff!  There should be cards for the Secret Wars and the Infinity Gauntlet storylines in every series!  As much as I like the Marvel Masterpieces lines I would’ve liked to see some cards like that!

#161 - The Origin of the Hulk

#187 - The Secret Wars!

My favorite card in the series by far is the “All Hulks Unite” card.  It has an illustration of Banner, the Savage Hulk, Fixit – and right in front, the merged Hulk!  Love it or hate it this storyline will remain one of the most memorable in Hulk’s history.

#189 - Infinity Gaunlet

As an early set goes, the chase cards were cool.  There are  just 5 holograms – Wolverine, Venom, Thing, Ghost Rider and Hulk.  Funny thing is – I found a box of these in an antique store.  I bought it – even though all I needed was the Wolverine Hologram.  I went through each pack – there were something like 36 packs with 12 cards in each pack – and amazingly, I only found 4 holograms in the whole box.  There were 3 Ghost Riders and a Thing.  I was so mad! 

#194 - All Hulks Unite!

Then, a bit later, I went into Bedrock Comics in Framingham.  There was another man walking in behind me who the owner knew.  He said “Hey, I have a hologram you might be interested in!”  and he pulls out… you guessed it!  The freakin’ Wolverine Hologram!  The one card I needed to complete the whole set!  I waited patiently, hoping the guy was going to pass on it and practically jumping out of my skin, but alas – the man bought it.  Foiled again.  I finally broke down and bought it off ebay.  So, like I said before, I have a bunch of extras of these cards – including some of the Holograms – email me if you have anything to trade with any other sets.

  1. Whoa man, you are like giving me a head trip with all this nostalgic goodness! I know I had this series, I have no idea where it could be, but for some reason I remember every card you just showed except the “Origins” one. I remember loving the “Hulks unite card though” and I was so happy the Infinity Gauntlet got its props! That was like the first major event comic I ever read! I was in… I wanna say 3rd or 4th grade. Sigh… I’m old.

    • Hey grey, I found out this morning that you joined my hulkspace. Unfortunately, they want me to pay them with money I don’t have so they’re going to shut it down. Hopefully, I’ll be able to build a new site.

  2. Oh too bad. Sorry to hear that. Btw, you can always hit me up on my blog if you need to reach me my brother, I posted a video for that movie you asked about. Anyway, sorry again. I was trying to get some people to join. One you get a new site lemme know I’ll join and link you!

  3. I have this whole set which consits of 205 cards. Does anyone know what they maybe worth? Not really looking to sell mainly trying to find out more info on them.
