Checklist on cardboard connection.

Mostly if not entirely the same old song and dance.

I have master sets of all of the Bond from Rittenhouse. But both of these UD sets are impossible to collect, with so many autos and chase cards limited to only 10 or 25 in existence. How can someone reasonably obtain those ?

Master sets of the RA Bond were never that difficult.

Yes and No. The smallest quantity of any card looks to be 10 on a couple of dual signatures, which is still better than 1/1s. Jeff Bezos could do it for the price of one more space launch. Apart from him and his buddies, no normal person makes this set. That's not new. The day of the Master Set Builder is over unless you are the card maker.

But I do like the UD Bond cards and they really have done a great job of getting as many signers as possible. Sure some people are missing and I don't think you trade in your RAs for these, but I do give credit where credit is due. It doesn't hurt to give more people the chance to get many of these signers. Not an easy thing maybe, but at least they are made.

I made a mistake about Daniel Craig. He is a new signer for UD. I really like some of the dual signer pairings and the most copies is 49, so they will be tough and pricey. I don't think its a great box buy because of the odds, but certainly there will be individual cards offered that Bond collectors will like even if they prefer the RA cards as a whole.

The first Upper Deck set was impossible to put together. Even the chase cards.

25 Bond Legacy cards-- 1 per box
8 other Bond Legacy cards--- 1 per 12 boxes
7 other Bond Legacy cards--- 1 per 36 boxes

15 Q Branch cards-- 1 per box

10 See the World cards-- 1 per 2 boxes

20 Bond vs. Villains cards--- 3 per box

About 88 different autos, 7 limited to 99 and 2 limited to 25

CRAZY

For any RA Bond collectors keeping track, as far as I can tell you now have 4 new Bond signers that did not appear in the RA sets.

Daniel Craig has been added to the UD checklist, but was of course in RA.

In both the previous and new UD sets you got Chritoph Waltz and Andrew Scott, neither done by RA.

From this new Villains & Henchmen, UD has added Gloria Henry and Nadim Sawalha, neither done by RA.

Heavy hitters could come out if UD makes No Time To Die, but so far they haven't had an individual Bond film to work with and I think they were holding on to these for quite awhile since sadly a couple of people have passed away already.

Did you mean Gloria Hendry as she has signed before.

Yep, I need a better pair of glasses and I didn't even make the connection. Roll Eyes Scratch her off the new list. Thanks.

RA did such a good job I guess they can't even come up with another "Old Man in Cigar Factory". There are a few people who could repeat, but UD has not gotten them and a good one to get would still be Monica Bellucci.

I spelled his name wrong on my original sheet. I think I'll just go home now. Big Grin

Ralph Fiennes would be a great addition too.

Check that again. I'm not looking cause I'm not interested in buying thru ePack, but there has to be some physical cards and the hits in there. This is how UD moves them out.
