SUPERMAN: MAN OF STEEL PLATINUM SERIES - (1994 SKYBOX) SEALED TRADING CARD BOX
💥 STILL SEALED - ONLY ONE BOX LEFT IN STOCK!
Following DC's 1992 Death of Superman event, and then the subsequent Reign of the Supermen event, public interest in Superman was at an all-time high during 1993, particularly due to his much publicized "death". DC comics — recognizing a good thing when they saw it — quickly released a flurry of licensed products to capitalize on the renewed interest in the comic book property, and collectors were soon treated to a Superman: Man of Steel Platinum Series trading card set (published by SkyBox) in 1994.
The Superman: Man of Steel Platinum Series trading card set had all the elements of an 'instant win'. A few details that immediately caught fan attention included:
- it was a 90-card series of over-sized, fully-painted trading cards,
- it recounted Superman's life from Superman #1 (1987) up until then-current 1994,
- it was released at two price points: a collector's edition and a premium edition,
- and it was 'a limited collection, with production less than that of the celebrated "Doomsday: Death of Superman" trading card series'.
The art is the strongest selling point of this set. Illustrators included Bill Sienkiewicz, Joe Phillips, Joe DeVito, Les Dorscheid, Zina Saunders, Alexander Gregory, Hector Gomez, Donato Giancola, Eric Peterson, Dave Dorman, Scott Hampton, Denis Rodier, Dan Brereton, Steve Fastner / Rich Larson, Ray Lago, Nick Choles, Tom Fleming, Jon Bogdanove, Daniel Horne, Kieron Dwyer, and Nelson DeCastro — a lot of these same names contributed pieces to the 1994 DC Master Series (also by SkyBox).
