Price guides etc.:
Combo #17, June 1996. A price guide and article mag for gaming cards, comics, action figures and non-sports cards. Nice Vampirella cover by Conner & Palmiotti. This special edition issue came with 1 of 2 Shi vs. Tomoe phone cards, and I ordered two copies, one of each, so have both cards. (So if you want both cards, you need to buy both mags.) Bags have been opened, but they have all inserts. Both come with a Fantasy Adventure gaming card too (Mayfair Games); one has #2 War Hawk, other one has #3 Jodian Darklord. Mags are NM. Articles on Vampirella's new direction, How to Play Killer Instinct, Iria (Anime character), interviews with Richard Hatch (Battlestar Galactica), William Stout, George Perez, various columns related to all collecting areas it covers, etc. . The phone cards are by Dynamic Entertainment, plastic, full color art by Tucci & friends, 3 minutes of time, never used. Shi one was limited to 3300, Tomoe to 3100. Put next to each other they make one art scene. Both cards have a light scuff line or two on them, came that way, but no color off, and you only notice the scuffs when glinted. If you're a Vampi or Shi/Tomoe completist, you need this. Still at cover price...$8 ea., or both for $14 (View)
