Conan Collector Cards (All-Chromium Series I) Comic Images - 1993
Notes: A full parallel set of HoloChromes was produced and distributed one card per box. The "major" color-variation cards that are considered to be part of a 100-card set are: 37 44 51 58 62 64 65 67 69 82. When I describe the variations, the color for the front generally refers to the top, be it sky or interior air. The second one listed is the description given by Comic Images, so I won't argue by making my own choices from the color wheel! This was really printed as a 100-card set, with each version of the variations just as common as the other cards. Because each card could have been found on more than one printing plate, and ink-mixing could have varied across the production run, you might find a "color variation" that is as different from another copy as the ones mentioned above. But those 10 are the ones that Comic Images confirmed were printed twice as often as the other cards. It gets even more interesting because you might identify more than two varieties for some of those cards, because the card fronts and backs were different, and "front a" could be found with either "back a" or "back b" (or, even with a "back c"). Thanks much to Fred Leemhuis for describing the Prism cards, to Don Wood for correcting a handful of my errors, to Jim Goodwin; LMA; and Steve Kavalecs for tracking down a way to describe the variation for the infamous card #37; and to Bryan McKinney, Dave Kissell, and Eric Padget for updates!
