KISS Collector Cards Series I
Cornerstone - 1997/1998

Notes:  This set achieved two printings. The regular first-printing cards have a
silver seal on the front; the regular second-printing cards have a gold seal, and
were accompanied by a 90-card red-seal parallel set.  A nine-card "box bonus"
subset replaced the ten Preview cards that were inserts for the First Printing.
Thanks much to LMA, Brian (lickitup), and Peter Vermaele for updates!

Box: 36 packs of 9 cards.
Common sets: approx. 3.58 per box if collation were perfect.
