1993 SkyBox Nightmare Before Christmas Trading Cards

1993 SkyBox Nightmare Before Christmas trading cards are the first to feature Jack Skellington, Sally, Oogie Boogie and the macabre cast of characters. While a couple of other sets for the film have come since, this one comes from before the movie's slow-burning popularity took off.

The base set take 90 cards to retell the story. Stills are framed by a somewhat intricate blue border on the front. In addition to the recap cards are some highlighting specific characters as well as a brief look behind the camera.

1993 SkyBox Nightmare Before Christmas has just one insert set. Four Spectra cards are inserted at a rate of 1:18 packs. So completing a fully master set isn't overly tough.

That said, there isn't a ton of the product out there. The movie took a few years to take off. It was only a moderate hit when it first released. As a result, the set is a little more expensive than most others released around the same time. It's not a massive premium but it does exist.
