1994 SkyBox Master Series: DC Comics Edition

 
The SkyBox Master Series: DC Comics Edition was released on June 22, 1994. It was the first fully-painted set to showcase DC heroes and villains. Each box contains 36 packs and there are 6 cards in each pack. Packs originally retailed for $1.49 each. SkyBox International produced 10,000 individually numbered cases, each containing 20 boxes. Each card features original painted artwork created exclusively for this series. The base cards are UV coated and stamped with gold-colored foil.
Superman headlines the base set on card #1. The painting is by John Estes.
Superman and Doomsday are featured on a Double-Sided Spectra insert. The odds of finding one of the six etched-foil Spectra cards are 1:36 packs. The artwork on the Superman and Doomsday Spectra was painted by Tom Fleming.

The odds of finding one of the four foil inserts are 1:18 packs. The featured characters are Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Green Arrow, and Hawkman.

Like many other releases of the mid-1990s, the front of the cards contain a UV coating. It is common for the base cards to become "bricked," or stuck together if improperly stored.

Each case contains 20 boxes and an uncut four-panel sheet of the foil inserts labeled S1-S4. Six different promo cards were inserted into magazines or distributed through dealers and comic conventions. Four-panel 8 x 10 inch promo sheets were issued with white borders or blue borders numbered to 1,000. Uncut sheets and test proofs have been observed from the Fleer/SkyBox bankruptcy auction.
