Any Simpsons trading card collectors in the house (forums)? If so, what sets do you have?
After the DVDs, books and comics, the many trading card collections would have to be my favorite Simpsons collectables. Easy to find, affordable, they take up little space and they're full of great original art and the writing is hilarious (on most collections). I got into them in the early '90's with the brilliant Skybox series one cards. I then went back and bought the Topps collection and got into series 2 of the Skybox cards. From there I've collected a few more sets and recently picked up Downunder and Simpsons Mania.
Here are the sets that I know of, if I missed any let me know.
The Simpsons - Topps, 1990
The Simpsons Series I - Skybox, 1993
The Simpsons Series II - Skybox, 1994
The Simpsons Downunder - Tempo, 1996
The Simpsons Anniversary Celebration - Inkworks, 2000
Simpsons Mania - Inkworks, 2002 (acts as a Series III to the Skybox cards)
Simpsons Film Cards - Artbox, 2000/2003
Simpsons Sticker Set - Artbox, 2000
The Simpsons Trading Card Game - Wizards of the Coast, 2003
