Had to share this tidbit.... a couple of Rittenhouse boards members and myself have been asking Steve about the chances of RA doing an Orphan Black set and just now he issued this reply:

"Re Orphan Black, I believe another company will be making cards for this show. Sorry."

I know nothing concrete has been announced and even though it stinks that the maker will not be Rittenhouse, I'll be extremely excited IF this set gets made by anyone. You would think if it does happen it would be made by Cryptozoic or Topps, right? Let's hope it won't be NECA. Can't wait to see if it comes to fruition.

Too bad Press Pass is gone. I would've loved to have seen their "Parks and Recreation" style "inscription" autographs for "Orphan Black" with Tatianna Maslany, signing as each of her characters, and providing a line of their dialogue along with the signature (especially for Helena, our favorite).

That's good an bad news at the same time -- I'd love an OB set, but really would want RA to produce it. . .

I imagine Breygent could have this one.

I did not know that Press Pass closed down. Just checked the websites and it was annouced in January of this year. Can't believe it got no mention here, or did I miss it?

Press Pass turned out some very nice sets. Parks and Recreation was noted, but I really liked the whole Elvis series. It was also the only company that held the NASCAR license. They were in business 22 years and I know that I have many cards lying around from their other products over the years.

Sad to see a good little guy go.

It was mentioned here, since that's where I heard about it, but I'm not sure where on the board. I believe Harris announced it.

I enjoyed their cards as well. The Elvis cards were beauties, for sure. 2+ decades is a good run, but certainly, I wish they'd been able to wrap it up, if that's what they wanted to do, on their own terms, which I don't think is what happened. One of our local comics shops closed about 3 years ago after nearly the same amount of time in business, and the people coming in the last few days had the air about them of someone attending a funeral, and understandably so. A lot of them had essentially grown up at that place we all thought would pretty much always be there.

I keep this stuff in mind and it helps me to never take for granted the continuing fine works of Breygent, Rittenhouse, and some of the other companies who keep making fantastic products despite perhaps not having the resources of a company, like, say, Topps, to be able to do so.

Thanks chesspieceface. I agree. I liked them (Press Pass) as a company too and their products as well.

I'm definitely up for an Orphan Black set. I love that show. Looking forward to the new season
