SkyBox International created The Sandman Trading Cards in 1994 which comprised a 90-card set with the characters and stories from Vertigo's, The Sandman. Oversized cards featured characters from the series created by created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth, and Mike Dringenberg. It contained a card for each of the first 50 issues of The Sandman, featuring cover art and story synopses. The set also included 39 original drawings of popular Sandman characters.

Seven hand-painted portraits of the Endless with foil-enhanced borders were randomly inserted in available packs. A limited live action 3-D hologram of The Sandman, art-directed by Dave McKean, was also included as a bonus insert.

NOTE: Art on the front of the card is the same as Sandman Trading Cards (Base Set) #2 but the overall color is slightly lighter, the font colors are reversed and the font size is larger. The back of the card has promotional copy for the Trading Card series instead of an issue synopsis.
