Marvel Universe 1993 (IV)
   SkyBox - 1993

Notes:  Also distributed as a factory set with 3-D card and two foils. Contrary to 
some speculations, the 3-D card came in three variations, "red" and "green" and 
"blue." Thanks much to Gil Andrews and Jeramy Bonnelle for updates!

Back when the series was new, there was a report of a Venom promo card. If it ever 
existed, it was probably a production sample that was handed out at a show in very 
limited numbers. I have removed it from the main list.

Okay, here's a few words about the colors in the H-IV 3-D holograms. We also see a
lot of discussion about similar cards in later SkyBox sets, where people disagree on 
which colors are most "common." We originally concluded that the H-IV came in 
three variants, Red, Green, and Blue. Some thought that the Blue was just a different 
way of looking at the Green, but Joseph Simone (thanks!) acquired all three and first 
reported that they were distinctly different when placed side-by-side. MF Baker 
(many thanks!) finally came up with a plausible, complete explanation, after the 
number of confirmed color variants started to pass five, but within six distinct 
groups, allowing for different opinions and viewing possibilities:

- Plain Green: always green
- Gold/Yellow: a gold or yellow tint, but green is also visible sometimes.
- Orange/Red: anywhere from bright orange to a deep red, green is sometimes visible
- Teal: a combination of green and a light blue, green is often visible
- Deep Blue: a true blue, very little green is ever visible, almost always bright true blue
- Navy Blue: very very dark, can only see the image clearly in very bright light;
               absolutely no green visible ever, the most scarce
- Deep, Deep Red: deep dark blood red with some bright red too, more easily viewed 
              than navy blue, almost no green ever, the most scarce

SkyBox must have liked the effect and concluded this made the cards even more 
collectible. Therefore they continued the process in later sets. And the scarcity of 
each color could have varied over different parts of the print run.

Box: 36 packs of 10 cards.
Common sets: approx. 1.98 per box if collation were perfect.
