Marvel Universe 2011 Trading Cards

Marvel Universe 2011 from Rittenhouse Archives

90-card base set covering some of Marvel's most memorable and ground breaking cross-over events including: The Korvac Saga, Secret Wars I, Fall of the Mutants, Age of Apocalypse, Heroes Reborn, Civil War, World War Hulk, Secret Invasion, Shadowland, and Fear Itself.

Chase cards include: Ultimate Heroes, Artist Drafts, Marvel Originals, and base parallel.

I got a box of these today and I really like them. Each cross-over event is featured on nine cards so that when you put them in plastic pages they form a puzzle of the event and the story is detailed on the back of the cards. The only thing I don't like about them is the parallel cards. They are "clear" cards, which is neat, but they are unnumbered. The hand-drawn SketchaFEX Sketch Card I got in my box is Archangel by Renato Mapa Jr. and it is listed as extremely limited.

Just curious. What do you do with all your triples, doubles and singles that don't comprise a set? I have a locker full of them at home.
One Halloween, I shoved all the kid-friendly cards in a huge bag and allowed the kids to grab ONE handful of cards in addition to a treat. I think word spread because I had more kids that year than ever.
