Sold for $ 125.00

I don't believe that I have ever seen these before.

Can someone preserve the picture before Ebay gets rid of the auction ?

I usually trawl through this sellers promo items once a week and did not notice this lot .
So it must of been snapped up pretty quick .And in my opinion this seller knows what he is selling ,and is a fair and reasonable seller.
With these sealed packs they were made and issued for all sorts of events etc no record has been made of what is out there so anything goes regarding price.
Also possibly most of them were opened.
I pick them up if I think they are a reasonable price but I have also not seen this one..

I have been collecting promos for 25 years now, and I have never seen these before. Despite having many rare and expensive promos, I do not have these.

My understanding is that these are not common cards from the set, as the backs are different from the base cards. There are 20 cards total, and they come in packs of 5. Not sure if they are random.

Whoever won these got a great deal !

These cards were reported in this thread though without a scan:

http://nonsportupdate.infopop....4605453/m/1917002296

Besides not having the line, "Exclusively distributed by Impel Marketing Inc," as in the regular cards, there are some other distinguishing marks. The #3 "The Hulk," the #6 "The Thing," are just titled "Hulk" and "Thing" in the regular set. The #87 "The Thing vs. The Hulk" is renumbered #88 and is titled "Thing vs. Hulk" in the regular set. Also, #89, 125, and 136 were renumbered for the regular set to 90, 126, 137.

I have seen one single sell for $55. That seems to be the upper end of the range because other sellers have tried to get more without success. The pack is a bargain even if the cards are more in that $25-50 range.

Yeah, the dealer knew he wasn't overpricing it and the buyer knew the value. Even by 1994, unopened packs were a rare sight as noted in "Comic Cards and Their Prices" by Stuart Wells III (1994, Wallace-Homestead Book Company), which is a nice reference to have.

David is correct. There are 20 different ones with the different trademark etc.. information. These were scarce even in the early days. Marvel collectors who have discovered their existence are going nuts over them. The problem in finding these now is that they're scarce in their own right and I would assume that a lot of them have been mixed up with the hundreds of thousands of the regular corresponding cards from that set. Whoever bought it got a super deal.
Jess,
I clicked on your older thread and saw that this is a duplicate one and should be consolidated with that thread by a moderator.

I just did a quick ebay search right now

A bunch of the 1990 Marvel Toy Biz promos, asking price, $ 15 each

A few of the ones from the set of 20 that we talked about, asking prices $ 65 each.

I personally don't have any of the above.

Are these signs of a renewed interest in 1990s promo cards ?

It's a sign of Marvel collectors ever increasing mania to acquire just about every card released by that franchise in the past 30 years.

I looked on ebay and last week, promos of The Thing, Deathlok, and Magneto sold for $ 65.00 each.

These were not the Toy Biz ones, but the promos without the Impel verbiage on the backs.
