I know I've posted these in this thread before, but considering that the thread is 10 years old, I'm not going to go digging.

This was the single toughest item for me to find. Slide Cards were short lived, never seemed to catch on. Most casual Dave fans aren't aware that he did this card, and most card people (if such a thing exists) who might have this card likely don't know who Dave is. eBay searches brought nothing, for many, many years.

Several years ago I bought the signed slipcased edition of Brush With Passion from Dave's estate, and they included some bonuses, including this card! I was excited to get this stupid card as I was to get that book!

They also threw in this neat xmas card from 1977 that Dave had done. Or it's a xerox of same. Anyone could mass produce these, but it's a neat curio to have.

SO, yeah, once you start searching, you'll find there's so much more out there!

I'm having trouble finding the non 3-D Seduction of the Innocent.  I don't see any on ebay and MCS does not list it.  Is it scarce?

Meanwhile, I think these are my favorite covers I own.  Lotta nice girls there...

I'm pretty sure Eclipse normally did a print run of 100 for the Non-3D versions of 3D books, the intent was to make them available for people who were colorblind or otherwise couldn't read the book in 3D.

Yes,it's very scarce.You had to order it and it was like five bucks each.I've only found 2 and one of them was a Hamster book.Most probably got destroyed in the flood that took out the Eclipse office.

There is also a variant of 3-D Zone 16 that is missing the title and number at the top of the front cover.  Was this a 2nd print or sort of giveaway?

The art on the 21 is better known from the Iger Comics Kingdom book; the 43 is a bit less well known:

I can neither confirm nor deny that I've ordered 14 books with Dave Stevens covers in the last 24 hours...

14, 16, something like that... the first ones arrived today.  The GCD credits both Hernandez and Stevens with pencils on the cover, but it could actually be just Stevens inks.  Nice cover in either case:

Pretty sure I already have Shadow/ Doc Savage in a box somewhere; I know I got 1 when it came out but missed 2, to my great annoyance:

People have panned the DV8 and Xena covers recently... but the A Scarlet Thirst cover is a classic:
