I *knew* I saw that variation long ago, but I let others talk me out if the memory. I saw the similar Animal Mystic one with a different colored logo but also was convinced I never did. Now you need to find that.

But Todd, it took me years just to notice that there were Angry Christ back color variants. I haven't seen the different color outfit variants of the Angry Christ card in at least 15 years and that assumes I actually saw them then. I think I had those but sold them.
I haven't seen the Animal Mystic variants. It's tough to spot text variants because not every seller includes a view of the back.

Here's the regular unnumbered "Venom" promo for the 1993 Marvel Masterpieces" set (aka "Marvel Masterpieces 2" or "Marvel Masterpieces Series 2"). I still haven't seen the elusive one with gray text also marked as "P8." Can anyone show a scan?
I was lucky to find this one maybe twenty years ago in a bargain box for a buck and it's signed by the artist, Dave Dorman.

Great thread! I too have many "error" cards in my collection, some of which are glaring and interesting to collect. As a stamp collector as well, I belong to online forums and there are several threads discussing color changes in stamps. The sun has a huge effect on paper and when something is exposed to sunlight, even for a short period of time, it will discolor the paper(in our case cardboard) and make it appear as a hue variation when in reality, it's simply fading. The resulting change can be substantial. I'm not saying that all color variations are the result of sun exposure but such a possibility should always be investigated when dealing with that issue.
