Ok, I have the cards in front of me now. These 3 have the "official" red ink signatures on the back.

I Dream
II Destiny
V Delirium

Hope this helps,
David

Not sure why it is so hard to find. I have never seen one on ebay, and it took me years to locate one !


I got one of these unframed. I am not sure if they were framed at first though.

I did get a special framed one that was limited to /25. It has matching numbers for the /4444 promo sheet, /250 S1 signed by Neil Gaiman with an embossed Skybox stamp, one silver Despair promo and a plaque saying "In Appreciation of a Great 1993 and anticipation of a 'Super' 1994! Skybox International 16/25".

My notes say this is a framed set from the Philadelphia Comicfest 1993, but it doesn't say anywhere on the front or back, so I probably copied it from the auction I won.

I also have a S1 autographed by Neil Gaiman with a Skybox emboss and numbered /250 promo. Same kind as in the frame.

These stuff are pretty cool and sometimes I find out about them on ebay years after the set came out. Right now, I am looking for any of those 6 card uncut sheets that I am missing.

Thanks,
David

David,

It's amazing all of these unknown things that surface years after the fact

John Oder posted a few months back on a previously unknown (to most of us) Images of Shadowhawk 9 card set of gold foil bordered promos that come in a huge, 8 x 11 toploader with a seal of authenticity. The regular promos which came in Cards Illustrated are ultra common, but I'd NEVER seen gold bordered versions OR ones that came sealed in a toploader, even though the sticker on it is numbered in the thousands.

Incidentally, I'm still looking for some of those 1993 Marvel Universe 3 card red foil sheets by Skybox that come sealed in the plastic holders, with the con logos on the backs. Why are they so tough to find if thousands were made ?

David,
Do you know of any documentation or promotional material that talks about the official red signed silver promos? I was lucky enough to get a original letter from Skybox that came with a Dream Silver card I bought. Just wondering if you have or seen something similar for the official red signed ones. Thanks!

I would love to find any of those collectors who bought non sports cards in the "hey days" of non-sports. Boxes in thousands, promos in thousands. They must be in boxes/garages of these long gone collectors. Unless they were destroyed. Who knows. I would love those collectors to just turn around and let us buy the good stuff. Oh well.

David

Uh... you want me to answer? Or David R above to answer?Smile

Sorry, no letter. I do love those Skybox letters. I have one from Batman. I guess those "letters" and Skybox promo checklist cards are stuff I gotta hunt down for my collections.

No, like I mentioned in an earlier posting, it is something that I wouldnt impose on another person, because I can't prove anything I said. All I know is that my best friend asked Neil Gaiman at a show about the different colors used for signing silver promos and Neil said the red ink is the real thing.

So, like I mentioned in the earlier posting: Buyer beware. If you are comfortable with the story, ok, if not, don't bother buying them or do so at a lower cost point.

The best thing I can say, ask NeilSmile Of course, I can't guarantee the same answer after all these years.

David

So glad I came across this thread!

My wife and I were going through her Sandman card collection over the weekend- something we haven't done in over 18 years- and came across the Delirium silver border card.

Neither of us can remember how we got it, but we were more puzzled by the autograph. A friend of ours who was also looking through the cards, spotted the auto and couldn't believe we didn't tell her we had met Neil Gaiman at a show. Did we? We couldn't remember!

After coming across this thread, we decided he never signed the card in person (And I guess we never met him. Booo!), because it has the red signature.

After years of looking, I finally found one of the Sandman Silver border promos (Delirium) signed in red by Gaiman on the back. Looks genuine but who knows.... Now all I need are the others and the uncut sheet. BTW these are not listed in PCE. I love this hobby. So many promos, So little time!

There is a Delirium signed in red on the back, you know where, asking price $ 100 +

And as mentioned in the other Sandman post, an unframed sheet, the one #to 4444, is also up for grabs. I haven't seen one of those in years.
