Melting Pot Comic Images - 1993
Notes: There are ten front-color-background variations, noted in the list below. Usually with Comic Images chromium sets, the "natural" set size is 100 cards numbered 1-90 with 10 cards with two variations each. Each copy of the variation cards is equally abundant, in other words, there will be twice as many cards numbered 82 as cards numbered 81 and they will be split roughly 50-50 between the two varieties. Bill White reports that his box indeed matched this pattern, and you can consider the set size to be 100. However, "lucky me" found that my box did not follow the pattern, and there was only one type of each variation-card inside. If I judged the set just from this box, I would call the series a 90-card set without variations. Because both types of distribution are observed, we can conclude that the variation card numbers may be slightly "short printed" and a 100-card set with variations would be somewhat more difficult to complete through trading -- especially if you break down a box and find that it contains only one version of the variation cards. Also issued was a parallel HoloChrome set, inserted at an average of around two per box; this parallel set also had the same ten background-color variations. Thanks much to Bill for the update and corrections!
