Independent Universe Collector Card set

I saw someone offering cards from the Independent Universe Collector card set (Dilemma Productions) said to be from the mid-90's. Jeff Allender's site lists it as a 90 card set but doesn't say where it comes from? Was it a factory set? Someone said the cards were in comics though 90 cards are a lot for a comic insert set. Does anyone know about this one?

Thanks,

Jess

I've been collecting these one by one over the years and never knew it was a set of 90!!!!.
I 've never seen a set for sale but would love to own one.

Hi Promoking,

I've also been told that there is a Series 1 and 2 so I assume the 90 cards is a combination of the two.

My understanding is that Series I is 90 cards and Series II is 60 cards (for a total of 150).

Hi Aeolus,

Wow. Do you know if these cards were comic book inserts? Were complete sets available to dealers?

Hi Jess.

Honestly, I don’t really know the answer to your question. I got Series I as a complete set and just recently purchased Series II off of feeBay (also as a set) which I haven’t received yet. Over the years I’ve managed to acquire about a dozen single cards (all from Series I) so I’d have to imagine that they were available individually at some point?

It appears that, like the Spoof Comics promos, you could get the cards one-by-one from comics but also buy the full set. I still haven't seen a comic book that has these cards but it seems to be among several titles.

FYI - here's some additional information regarding The Independent Universe Collector Card Set - Series II (published by Dilemma Productions (c) 1996).

The set that I got off of feeBay came in a shrink-wrapped plastic case with a gold sticker depicting the Independent Universe logo (emblazoned in blue w/ a number "2") stating that there are 60 cards w/ the $7.95 price listed as part of the graphics. Compared to Series I, you would think that these were put out by a different company. This series of 60 cards has much higher production values than the first series and includes many cards in full color (a total of 33) along with completely different card back graphics.

There are 56 numbered cards, a unnumbered title card, a Comic Book Legal Defense Fund card (that doesn't mention Dilemma Productions) and two black & gold foil cards: (1) Golden Oldie Card #1 and (2) Bru-Hed (unnumbered).
