The original Marvel Masterpieces line is one of the most impressive ever for comic trading cards. With high art the focal point, it's tough to go wrong. And while 1994 Fleer Marvel Masterpieces might not command huge prices or carry a massive checklist, it lives up to the brand's name.

The entire set features artwork by Greg and Tim Hildebrandt. This is similar to the first Masterpieces set released a couple of years earlier that had card fronts from Joe Jusko. 1993 saw a large roster of artists contribute cards.

The 1994 Fleer Marvel Masterpieces base set has 140 cards. Focusing exclusively on characters rather than events, the artwork is trademark Hildebrandt. Highly detailed and colorful, their interpretations take a more realistic approach.

Card fronts use art as the focal point. Paintings are presented with a full-bleed layout. The only additions are a small nameplate and a Masterpieces logo, both in gold foil.

Backs are a little busier. One side has a close-up image of the character's face. It's the same painting as the one used on the front. The other side has a very short writeup on the character as well as a quote from the Hildebrandts.

1994 Fleer Marvel Masterpieces has some inserts but the checklist isn't huge.

Every hobby pack comes with a Gold Foil Signature parallel. The only differences over the base cards are a facsimile signature of the Hildebrandts and a small stamp at the top of the card noting it's a parallel.

Holofoils spotlight ten top heroes and villains. Featuring a speckled front, each of the cards has three versions. Silver Holofoils are inserted in hobby packs. Bronze Holofoils are exclusive to Walmart packs. Jumbo packs have Gold Holofoils.

PowerBlast inserts have horizontal images. The draw with these is etched foil.

Hobby cases came with a set of ten Masterprints. These over-sized cards measure 6 1/2" by 8".

Given its premium nature, 1994 Fleer Marvel Masterpieces isn't often found at closeout prices. That said, it's still very affordable given the quality. It was printed in high enough quantities that supply isn't an issue and even sealed boxes are relatively easy to find.
