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.
