Avengers 50th Anniversary (Unstoppable Cards, 2012)

I received two boxes this morning.

Box numbers 148 and 205. Each box contained 28 silver foil packets with no other markings.

Having opened each box I can reveal that I found two complete base sets and at least two complete Gold chase sets in both boxes.

The base sets were easy to complete as the back and front edging were in different colours for each group of 9 cards.The fronts are a mixture of B & W and Coloured photographs with descriptive backs. Card 1 is the same image used on P1. Cards 70-72 are the checklist. Only five autograph cards are named on the checklist with others referred to as "Cast" cards.

Box 148 contained the following extra cards:-

Honor Blackman autograph card
Anneke Wills autograph card
Bernard Cribbins autograph card

and 3 Sketch cards which I will post scans of later.

Box 205 contained the following extra cards:-

Brian Blessed autograph card
Julian Glover autograph card
Anneke Wills autograph card
William Gaunt autograph card


and 2 Sketch cards again I will post scans later.

In addition the package contained the following additional cards

P1 x 2, P2 x 2, 5 different case topper cards numbered 0/100 plus an additional sketch card from the series that was intended for signing by the cast. Again I will post scans front and back later.

Artists are

Top row- ???, Randy Simplon, Shane McCormack
Bottom row- Rich Molinelli, Rich Molinelli, Andy Fry

I'm sure you guys will let me know the artist I can't identify. I have some ideas but I'm not sure so I won't embarras myself or the artist by getting it wrong.

From Kevin's post under news and rumors:

If anyone's thinking about buying a case from their local dealer I can confirm that each case will have a 5 card case topper set numbered to 100 and in every case there will be a Diana Rigg autograph card somewhere. There are also 5 Diana Rigg signed sketch cards going in this product and 2 Ian Hendy cut autos.

Two post above show this to be an incorrect statement as two cases without a Diana Rigg autograph.

Have you got a few more sketches to post Kevin, or were you particularly unlucky?

Did you get any extra Linda Thorson or Honor Blackman autos to compensate for the lack of a Diana Rigg?

I seem to remember reading somwhere that there were only 25 Diana Rigg auto cards.

I got five other sketches but four of them were spoiled courtesy of what may have been paint/ink or some other substance on a roller in the packing process. The fifth is one I just forgot to include by Tony Miello. Two of the spoiled cards were otherwise really nice sketches. Jason has said he will sort things out with them.

I didn't get any extra Linda Thorson or Honor Blackman autos. Just one of each. No sketch autos either.

I have also noticed the roller damage to the sketch cards caused by the sorting machines !

I have pulled some from packs with this damage and many cards listed on Ebay have this damage
along with completed listings...i think alot of collectors are going to be dissapointed with this.

Hi Millhouse here as promised here is a scan of the 4 sketch cards I pulled from my 2 boxes



Can anyone tell me who the Lee Lightfoot sketch card is of. Also I phoned Jason Wright at unstoppable and asked him how many sketch cards each artist did for this set and he told me each artist did around 25 sketch cards for this set but Kevin Graham only did 8 sketch cards for this set and I pulled 1 of them.
