Game Of Thrones Season Five and 007 Classics

RittenhouseArchives/Sci-fi Hobby has just released two new Trading Card Sets consisting of five Cards per Foil Pack with 24 Packs per Box
.
Each set features high resolution photos printed on glossy, heavy-gauge paper.  All Cards are cut with crisp edges, no shifting of images with additional information of each figure on each Card's back.

From both Boxes of Trading Cards I assembled full Base Sets with almost enough for additional full Base Sets.  No matter the Card Set I've consistently received over the years there has always been enough Cards for full Sets with plenty left over to complete most of an additional Set.

Rittenhouse Archives/Sci-fi Hobby is all about quality and providing the very best Trading Cards and special Limited Edition Insert Cards.  You can always count on getting a great selection of Base Cards and Bonus Cards in each Box.


The first of the two new releases is Game Of Thrones Season Five.  Besides the gorgeous Base Cards consisting of Character and Episodes, additional randomly inserted Bonus Cards are sure to please the most discriminating collector.

Bonus Cards for this Card Set include:

  • 100 Parallel Base Cards (8 for me)
  • 100 GOLD Parallel Base Cards (I received 1)
  • 9 "Quotable" Game of Thrones Cards (2 in my selection)
  • 10 "Relationship" Cards (Nada)
  • 10 GOLD Parallel "Relationship" Cards (Nope)
  • 16 Game of Thrones "Reflections" (Mirror) Cards (Zip)
  • 20 "Beautiful Death" Art Cards (1)
  • 20 GOLD Parallel "Beautiful Death" Art Cards (None)
  • Night's Watch Relic Cards (Zip again)
  • Dragonglass Relic Card (Got it!)
  • Hand-drawn Sketch Cards (Nope)
  • Two Autograph Cards are guaranteed per Box (Mine are Elizabeth Cadwallader and Rupert Vansittart)
  • Other Bonus cards are available for multiple Case purchases.

James Bond is one my favorite Silver Screen heroes-if not my number one favorite.  Rittenhouse Archives/Sci-fi Hobby has done a number of James Bond Trading Card collections over the years and each and everyone has been spectacular.

Their newest James Bond release: 007 Classics, is no exception.  It consists of a stunning selection of Cards taken from the Pierce Brosnan era: The World Is Not Enough, that tells the entire exciting story in images and text.

Randomly inserted Bonus Sets include License To Kill (4 for me, plus one Gold Card), The Man With The Golden Gun (4 again) and On Her Majesty's Secret Service (4 once again).  I also recieved a Gold The World Is Not Enough Card.

Two Autograph Cards are guaranteed per Box (Mine are Madeline Smith and Daz Crawford) and Skyfall and Spectre Prop Cards are also randomly inserted (I got a piece of wardrobe material worn by Judi Dench--M).  

The new 007 Trading Card selection is a Licence To Thrill!
