1 Atlantis Crew - C4
0 Fallen Hero
1 Stargate Atlantis Costume Card - Janus
(Whitish Beige with vertical "Hills and Valleys" vertical ripple pattern)
1 Autograph Card - Christopher Heyerdahl ( Very nice stylized signature Thumb Up )


NOTES:
------

For the Costume cards, what I mean by "Hills and Valleys" is raised and recessed surfaces.

Extremely crisp and clear images. RA either used DVD or digital grabs. Very nice !

Extremely tightly wrapped packs. Be sure to (also) sufficiently open the (middle of the) packs as they leave no wiggle room to slide the cards out. (Pull the inner middle seams slightly apart first)

Both Autograph and Costume cards were unnumbered. Eliminates possibility of numbering gaps from autograph signers who drop out (or don't get their signed cards back in time) or unobtainable costumes. Also allows for more autograph or costumes cards to be included into a set which is what happened here (or held over for a future set).


Wording on back of Costume cards is interesting as is departs from RA's normal Costume Cards wording of stating that the costume card is worn by (actress/actor's name) as (character's name).
Wording is - "This card contains an authentic piece of Stargate Atlantis costume material."

Quotable cards seem to be in specific set sequences. The 7 that I got from each box were the same ones to each other. So if you get the "right" boxes, you should be able to complete your subset.

Really loved the variety and variation in the colors, fabric types and textures of the "From the Archives" Costume cards. Really makes this set stand out boldly and nicely. Dance Thumb Up

Also quite a few of the Autograph signers seemed to have signatures that were unique, stylized or just plain nice. Thumb Up
Of course, there were one or two that just had to break the trend and do the "Scribble and Scrawl". Shake Head

Was initially going to post images here of the Costume cards to show off their nice textures and colorations and the difference in the two Autograph cards from one end of the spectrum ("nice and stylized") to the other ("non-caring scribble")

However, since the signatures on my Autograph cards and the costume swatches on my Costume cards are pretty much in tune with the samples Rittenhouse has on their website, CLICK HERE to see images of the Autograph and Costume cards.

Overall, a very nice set. Thumb Up
Great Job Rittenhouse Thumb Up

OK, 2 case summary here there is no way I'm listing 24 boxes individually. Big Grin

63 Card Base Sets
60+, almost every box made up 2 complete sets and I was averaging 5 sets in 2 boxes.

The Quotable Stargate Atlantis (1:6 packs)
6 sets of 20 + 31 extras

Ancient Technology (1:20 packs)
4 sets of 9 + 14 extras

Atlantis Crew (1:40 packs)
2 sets of 9 + 7 extras

Fallen Hero (1:480 packs)
2 sets of 2 Thumb Up

Costumes

2 Male Wraith
1 Janus
1 Melia
4 Chaya Sar
3 Sora
2 Dr. Carson Beckett
1 Dr. Rodney McKay
3 Lt. Aiden Ford
4 Teyla Emmagan
2 Dr. Elizabeth Weir
1 Acastus Kolya

Autographs

1 Joe Flanigan as Major John Sheppard (Very Limited)
1 Paul McGillion as Dr. Carson Beckett (Very Limited)
1 Colm Meaney as Cowen (Limited)
4 David Nykl as Dr. Zelenka
2 Boyan Vukelic as Sgt. Stackhouse
1 Craig Veroni as Dr. Peter Grodin
4 Christopher Heyerdahl as Halling
2 Jana Mitsoula as Allina
2 Melia McClure as Melia
2 Laura Mennell as Sanir
4 Gildart Jackson as Janus
1 Ari Cohen as Tyrus

2 case card autos: Erin Chambers as Sora
1 2 case incentive auto: Robert Davi as Commander Kolya

Overall I really do like this set. The chase sets are well thought out and look great. I beat the odds on the Fallen Hero cards, which really shocked me, as did getting a full master set in 2 cases. Not my normal luck.

My only complaint with the set is the base card numbering. It needed to be either bolder or larger as the numbers fade into the card background. A bit difficult to sort, but overall a very minor point.
