Ask a lot of modern collectors what their first foray into the world of comic trading cards and they'll point to 1990 Impel Marvel Universe. The comprehensive set became a blueprint for what followed in the years and decades that followed.

1990 Impel Marvel Universe 48 Storm 214x300 Image1990 Impel Marvel Universe has a 162-card checklist. The first half is dedicated to individual cards and heroes. The second half includes several subsets that focus on teams, rivalries and classic comics. Borrowing from the world of sports cards, there are six "rookies" dedicated to new and relaunched properties.

Besides colorful character-focused artwork on the front, card backs include extensive write-ups. These include vital stats such as their real name, battle stats and first appearances.

In 1990, inserts were only starting to catch on. Holograms led the chase in 1990 Impel Marvel Universe. Inserted approximately one per box, there are five different cards in the set. They're very basic compared to what would hit the hobby around the same time.

1990 Impel Marvel Universe is far from rare. But nostalgia and the overall quality of the set has kept box and set prices from completely bottoming out like a lot of other trading card releases from the era.

Today, he continues to build sets, go after inserts with cool technologies, chase Montreal Expos and finish off his John Jaha master collection.
