I recently saw this card for sale. It is touted as having been a giveaway with a beach towel purchase from Walmart in 1994. 6 different cards, one for each towel. I'd never heard of this promotion.

Now, Walmart also sold boxes of these cards. Are the 6 Limited Edition Subset cards found in the boxes identical to the sealed beach towel cards?

They look very, very similar, down to what appears to be red foil letters.
I have a set from packs, but the picture of the towel card is probably too small to compare them fully.

Thanks for taking the time to compare them!

Sorry for the delay. For purposes of comparison, here's the pictures of my own set, which were definitely pack-pulled.

They seem to be identical. So, no need to chase them as newfound promos except perhaps in the cello pack, when they appear. I wonder if they'll be featured in PCE2023?
