Great line up! I hope they continue the ID card insert set for the new cast members.

And thanks to my unreasonable obsession with Elizabeth Henstridge Luv You , I will pick up this autograph to join my season one card.

Sure puts Upper Deck's autograph lineup for their Marvel film releases to shame!

A few of these sigs I need. Hoping they won't be astronomical in price.

I am still slowly working on Season 1 set with my son but then I am still working on sets from the early 90's! Horray for a great line up!

Great line up, but where's Adrianne Palicki?


Still very good, love the bordered style.

She's in "Smallville Season 3" from Inkworks back in 2004, haha...

These were just shown on Rittenhouse's facebook page. Kyle MacLachlan is the 6-case incentive and Jaimie Alexander is the 9-case incentive. The others are archive box exclusives.

Very nice looking cards, but what can I say? They would be even nicer if they were in product. Wink

I know, it's a pretty complete autograph list. I was just being a wise guy about the incentives and archive exclusives. Big Grin

Speaking of, I don't know if it's true but people on another forum are saying that the archive boxes for this, while having all these pretty silver autographs, will not contain their base auto counterparts. If this is true, then what now is the point of an archive box exactly? Razz

In all seriousness, I realize that dealers need to make their money and may need "incentives", but to me the customers and collectors need an incentive to spend their hard earned also. Everything hinges on whether or not we buy these products and I wish more thought was given to that from time to time.

I read that too and also wouldn't swear to it, but the 7 silver autos replace their non-silver base auto cards. The 2 case incentives are included. At least that is what is being reported.

I agree with you Logan, the archive box should have those 7 base autos or it should not be called an archive box.

Ultimately, if true, I think RA is being too cute and it serves no one. The archive box holder still has to go out and get 7 more autograph cards for a master. While me, as an autograph collector, couldn't care less about the 7 silver repeats. If I want any of those signatures I am going to get the cheaper base autograph card. I have said this many times, any like certified autograph card has the same genuine signature. It is usually only the autograph that I am interest in, so why would I pay $200 when there is one for $40?

Perhaps the information is wrong, because I really don't see RA trying this. Maybe the limited silver signatures are seen as an upgrade, but I think collectors will feel cheated out of the full base autos. Of course few collectors would get these boxes, dealers do. So again if true, maybe dealers should be complaining. Big Grin

This is what Rittenhouse did for Continuum and I think it is correct they are doing it for SHIELD. Say there are 20 archive boxes and 5 autographs that are replaced with the silver versions, this means there's an additional 100 main cast autos in regular boxes. So I'm pretty happy with this as a solution.

The main actors tend to sign fewer anyway and are asked to sign for lots of different things, so this provides something special (the silver versions) without them having to sign extra.

Checklist is upon the RA site. Addt'l auto cards added to the Archive Box.

A pretty good checklist. Tim DeKay is one of the signers from White Collar, Carnivale & Fox's new Second Chance.

Disappointed about no Adrianne Palicki auto, and a scare auto for Jaimie Alexander. Scarce rarity, now when did that become a thing?

Still, high marks and great job overall!
