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 

Box: 36 packs of 7 chromium cards.
Common sets: approx. 2.50 per box if collation were perfect.
