Parallels

XPlosion

Xplosion is a full parallel of the base set printed on metal with rounded corners -- similar to the Leaf Steel cards in 1996 Leaf Preferred.

A promotional card featuring Kerry Wood was distributed prior to the product's national release.

Fusion

Fusion is a laser-cut, 50-card partial-parallel. Cards #1-30 parallel the Heavy Metal subset (cards #101-#130), while #31-#50 reprint the Supernatural subset. Each card is also available in the following serial-numbered parallels.

  • Fusion Sterling (serial-numbered to 500 copies)
  • Fusion Titanium (serial-numbered to 50 copies)
