The initial print run of the game, which sold out completely in a matter of weeks. A second (much larger, and far more common) print run was immediately begun to meet demand.
The ink on all cards from this version is *significantly* lighter than that found in the second and all subsequent printings, as well as in all other sets. These cards are often referred to as the "faded" versions.
For gameplay purposes these cards are identical to the standard "Limited" version of the set, and use the original numbering system (as opposed to the "Unlimited" UL### system).
