Cards : 1992 McFarlane Era

The casual observer of Spider-Man cards from the late 80's and early 90's may be forgiven for thinking that Todd McFarlane was the sole writer and artist for Spider-Man comics, ever.

McFarlane was the subject of the first ever Spidey card set - 1989 McFarlane I, and then was also featured in the follow-up 1990 McFarlane II. And as if that wasn't enough, here he is shortly after in yet another dedicated series - The McFarlane Era.

Basic Cards

There are some major differences from the previous two McFarlane card series - the art on the front is glossy, richer color, and goes edge to edge. The series is more structured, and features descriptive text on the back of each card - and for the first there is a chase set of six sparkly prism cards.

The card stock is still pretty thin, and the sequel 30th Anniversary set is noticibly nicer still.
