If baseball, football, basketball, hockey and other sports can have annual sets, why not comics? 1991 Impel Marvel Universe Series II is the second in a series of four annual releases from the company that recaps key characters, debuts, battles and more. And like the popular first set, there are holograms.

The 1991 Impel Marvel Universe Series II checklist is big, clocking in at 162 cards. All of the major Marvel characters have their own cards as well as many minor heroes and villains. Other subsets include Teams, Weapons, Rookies, Arch-Enemies and Legends.

Cards have colorful borders as well as an inner frame and some diagonal stripes. Factor in the image and the cards look very bright and busy. A Marvel logo at the top of the card notes the year. The subset is noted on the other side. Keeping with the theme of being the comic equivalent of a sports card, backs have stats, bios and a second small image.

The only inserts in 1991 Impel Marvel Universe Series 2 are Holograms. This five-card set highlights the most popular heroes of the time as well as a card in which the Fantastic Four and the Mole Man square off.

A tin with both the base set and the holograms was limited to 7,500 sets. A binder was also offered through a wrapper offer. It has a Spider-Man hologram on the front and a picture of Wolverine's card on the back.

  1. Is it possible to order select singles of the 1991 Impel marvel cards? I need less than twenty to finish my collection.
    Let me know if you can help me find out
    Thank you

  2. I have hundreds of open packs and singles of 1991 universe II cards cheap

  3. I wud sell u, whichever ones you need, for cheap, Mark!??

  4. I was looking through my nearly complete set of these cards and came across something I can’t seem to find anywhere else… It is an error card with Darkhawk on the front with an extremely off center checklist (card #162) printed on the reverse. Any interest in this card or thoughts on value?
