SDCC 2023: Snuggle Up With Wolverine’s ’90s Trading Card Fleece


Remember when Wolverine was style mysterious, and his past was so shrouded in mystery that even the slightest glimpse into his background was like finding a nugget of gold? Ah, those were the days.

Now you can sleep at night wrapped up in those memories thanks to Surreal Entertainments Wolverine fleece, based on his 1992 trading card!

The two-sided fleece shows off Jim Lee’s art on one side and the mutant’s stats on the other. However, there has been a slight modification to Logan.

The original profile on the trading card shows Logan smoking a cigar. The fleece removes the “offending” object.

Nearly everything else is identical. The old copyright info is missing asi n the Impel logo. The bio layout is also slightly different, but the wording is still the same.

Suppose you want to go nighty night with the Blue Strike Force member of the X-MEN, pre-order over at the Big Bad Toy Store. The blanket comes in a tin featuring the same artwork and will run you $39.99.

SDCC 2023’s PX Previews exclusive fleece will ship in August and is limited to only 2,000 pieces.

In 1992, the X-MEN Impel trading cards were a huge deal. Recess usually involved several of us trading characters back and forth, trying to complete the set.

There were four rare hologram cards. Even to this day, I’m still missing the Wolverine hologram.

Another tough find was all nine cards needed to complete the danger room scene. This gimmick would be used in other Marvel trading card sets throughout the 1990s. One of these collections featured awesome red-tinted foil cards showing off the newly released characters from the 2099 comics.
