Has anyone heard of any news regarding an ANT-MAN series by Upperdeck?

No, but by odd coincidence, I just read a good book about the 2nd editor of the pulp sic-fi magazine "Amazing Stories", a man named Ray Palmer. They named the Ant Man character after him. He was also the man who credited with creating the Shaver (Hallow Earth) Mysteries in the late 1940s and the UFO craze in the 1950s (both featured in "Amazing Stories". It was a good read. It's called "The Man From Mars."

Atom is Ray Palmer from DC Comics, which is Marvel's version of Ant Man

I've not heard anything about ordering.

But I have seen that some artists received blanks to draw on.

If the set doesn't happen, you might see the sketches in a future product. Maybe Civil War since Ant Man is in it.

If the AntMan set doesn't happen at least I'll have the Paul Rudd auto from Parks and Recreation. Side note: Why isn't there a Sex Panther scratch-n-sniff card that smells like straight gasoline haha.

Product is up, but no release date announced.

Typical UD Marvel formula, 90 card base set, 3 hits per box, and usual multiple parallels. The 3 hits are 2 memorabilia cards (read costumes) and 1 other that is either an actor autograph, a sketch or a dual comic creator autograph. No signer names revealed of course.

No SRP yet, but I'm guessing close to the same as Avengers for hobby box.

Ant-Man just opened and seems to have gotten good reviews and the promise of more to come.

Oh Wow, pretty surprised by that short autograph list, but this is a costume heavy product with sketches like all the others.

I like the idea of dual autographs and the double sided quad autographs sound cool, but no Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) and I was hoping for something from Michael Douglas. Really expected the Rudd autographs, he signed for Parks and Recreation. Now Lily is the only semi-big attraction. The rest will look like the typical Marvel set I'm sure. Haven't asked my LHS for any boxes, so no dog in the fight. Wink

The auto line-up is not bad but I am surprised at Rudd as well. Still will be a fun set looking forward to it! Big Grin

Not too surprised by no Michael Douglas autographs, but there doesn't even seem to be any memorabilia from his character, Hank Pym, which is kind of odd. Always nice to see a Stan Lee autograph though, and on a Marvel Feature #4 cover card, too, pretty cool.

As usual, a ridiculously easy set to complete.

I can assume since its UD. The autographed cards will not be cheap.

This is the quietest Marvel movie set I've barely heard of. Did anybody get these cards?

There are some listings you know where, but mostly costumes and fewer autographs. For some strange reason many of the very limited sketches seem to be coming from Hong Kong sellers. I have no idea what that means. Big Grin

Since this is UD, I'm guessing we are maybe still in that honeymoon period where selling is prohibited to all except their select authorized distributors, yada, yada, yada. Wink

Well judging by the overwhelming response Big Grin , looks like no one here went for Ant-Man cards yet.

I think this is a combination of UD's 90 day window and a somewhat lackluster autograph list. Maybe in another 3 months?

As I expected the autographed cards are very expensive.

I saw a Card Talker exit the CNCS showroom last week with a box.
