I have purchased a box of comic cards and they are exactly like all the other cards i can find, except that they say nelsonic across the back of the card.

Nobody can seem to find any info on these cards at all, can anyone please help? i have a few listed on ebay for pictures.

any help in identifying would be greatly appreciated!!

I struck out finding information on the web, but because they all seem to be from the 1992 X-Men set - I speculate that they arranged with Impel to sell an X-Men watch in a special tin with cards. No signs of them outside the ones you have!

Impel became Skybox and Skybox folded years ago. So there's no manufacturer's help coming from them.

Sounds interesting, there were lots of cross promotion done back in the day.

Nelsonic was the name of an electronics manufacturing and development company that operated from Long Island City, Queens NY in the early 1980s and throughout the 1990s. They have since been bought out. It is still a subsidiary of M.Z. Berger. In 1992, Nelsonic made a series of X-men watches and the cards were included with the watches when purchased.

I have been looking all morning and cant find a reference to those x-men watches either. lots of pacman and mario brothers, but i cant find a single x-men watch. A reference to the watch that included a card would be helpful to the cause i think.

You guys are awesome!! ty

I'm not sure what watch cards we're talking about. I would have to take some time to find the ones I have. Found this pic to the only X-Men watches with cards that I know of.

Okay, I see the one on ebay. Never knew those existed. Heck, I may have some in old boxes of singes that friends have sent me that they no longer wanted and never looked closely on the back.
