The Avengers The Complete Collection: Set One (Unstoppable Cards. 2019)
Box 1001 of 1,499 came to my door - here's what was inside:
One set of 54 base cards (This is a factory box set)
Brian Jackson as Johnnie
Astor Sklair as Det. Sgt Rogers
Bernard Cribbins as Bardley Marler
Thoughts about the cards: I am not a super hero fan, so when I hear "The Avengers" I think of the British TV series. That said, this set of cards covers the first 2 seasons of the show, none of which I had ever seen. Honor Blackman as Kathy Gale appeared in the 2nd season and played a big role in making this show a big hit. The base cards are nicely done with clear b&w and a few color shots on the front and back, but no text other than a cryptic title on the front such as Holster, Lounging or Tied Up. 45 of the cards are like this, with 8 character cards and a Title card and Checklist.
I think when series 2 appears, The Emma Peel years, I should be able to recognize most of the scenes.
The autos are very nice on card signatures, one of mine was in blue ink and the others in black. The Jackson auto had some slight damage to one corner. I look forward to completing the series.

I agree Hammer - I recognized him right away, I don't know the other 2 actors.
