Upper Deck's latest sports efforts may have not wowed the masses, but their newest Marvel Comics movie tie-in set in my opinion is really nice. 5 cards per pack with retail packs ringing in at $1.99 it isn't the best value per se, but the card design is nice and the what appears to be one per pack inserts are nice.
Remember in Iron Man 2 when the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent assigned to watch over Tony had to leave due to a disturbance out west? This is what he was going to oversee...the discovery of Thor's hammer - Mjolnir!
I've bought a few packs already and each pack has come with one sort of insert. I love these Concept Series cards. I just wish I knew who the artist was. This artwork reminds me of Stuart Immonen a little.
I anxiously await this movie as Marvel seems to better themselves with each subsequent movie. I love how the movies are starting to blend in as we approach the big screen debut of the Avengers movie in a few years. Upper Deck has come a long way since their release Hulk Film & Comics card release for the first live action Hulk movie. I would love to finish the base set of the Thor cards. Perhaps these too will one day end up in the discount pack boxes @ Target.
