Super-Rare Appearance of Mickey 'N Friends cards

Here are 6 views an incredibly rare factory-sealed case of "Mickey 'N Friends Fun Cards" (Skybox, 1996). It's an educational card set for kids but cards, boxes, and cases are sought after by longtime Disney collectors because the distribution seems to have been quite limited. I was informed this case sold recently for a mere $40 and may be the only case that has appeared for sale in at least the past 20 years.

Here's a scan of a card pack and the 5 cards that were inside. There are 4 different subsets of 5 cards with each subset featuring a Disney character and a theme (e.g. learning letters) These cards are rarely seen and are sought after by Disney collectors who have to have everything. There are also 3 different promo cards for the set that were distributed separately and seldom-seen as well.

Thanks for posting these, Jess.

I have been searching ebay for these for over 20 years, and have never seen them show up before now. However, I have seen a sell sheet from 1996 on ebay.

In one of the issues of PCE, Todd had a nice full color photo of the Donald Duck pirate promo card.

Another sealed case of these 1996 cards sold on ebay in July for $ 50.00

For me, this is also only the second time I have ever seen these in 26 years

Still have not seen the promo cards !

Todd had a color photo of the Donald Duck pirate promo in one of the older PCEs. It has the same front as the regular Donald card from the set, I believe, but the back of the promo gives a typical breakdown of the card set while the base card does not.

I found a black and white image of the Donald Duck pirate card on page 85 of the 2005 PCE.

regards

John

Another reason that the promos may be impossible to find is that they are not regular sized cards or even widevision.

They are comparable in size to the "bingo" cards that one uses to play bingo games. Smile

Add these to the list of rare and unusual 1990s SkyBox promos, like that rare Marvel Masterpieces X-Men/Ice Man canvas card promo
