Not Doctor Strange related, but having to do with Benedict, some of you may remember that at the Philly Show back in 2013 Rittenhouse showed an unsigned full-bleed Into Darkness autograph of his at their tables. I always thought that Rittenhouse got them signed and are holding them for the next movie set. But someone asked Steve about it on the Rittenhouse forum back in April of this year and here was his response:

"We've been trying to get the B. Cumberbatch card signed for what seems like an eternity. Still hopeful, but until the cards are signed, I take nothing for granted."

So I'm not holding out much hope that those will end up being signed. Shame if they don't because it's a sweet looking card and would go nicely with all the other full-bleeds from the rebooted films. Plus it would be another on-card as well. I agree with X, can't imagine his signature fitting on one of those stickers. There'll be a whole lot of "BC"s signed for Doctor Strange I'm guessing.

Here's a pic of the unsigned full-bleed from the show:

Your link has now gone Logan but I do remember that card.

Makes you wonder just what transpired for those full-bleeds not to have been signed. An issue with the printers/getting both styles of card to Cumberbatch to sign or something random like that?

The obvious questions is why did RA not give him both styles to sign at the same time because it seems odd that he would agree to sign one style and not the other. Or maybe RA did get both to him and he only signed and returned the one style used for the case incentive. Who knows...
I imagine there is an interesting story behind this one.

Whatever happens at least he does have one official Trek card, and a fantastic looking one at that if you as me (I like the design better than the full-bleed). Shame it is so expensive, because I would LOVE one.

Benedict Cumberbatch is probably one of the busiest actors on the planet at the moment, IIRC the day after he finished filming Doctor Strange he started work on Sherlock series 4.

I do not recall that particular version of Zachary Quinto's Spock card appearing yet.

Great spot on the Quinto. I had thought the previewed card was the one released in the 2014 Movies set - obviously not and there will be a 3rd Quinto at some point!

I take your point about Cumberbatch but it takes seconds to bang out a signature. I reckon he could find 30 mins to sign a small stack then hand them to a PA to get to the post office. He just needs to get his priorities sorted!

Geez I thought that was the one from the 2014 set also. Great catch WOMBLE.Thumb Up

Whenever I hear about a company waiting on an actor to sign cards after such a long time I immediately think that the blanks are probably long gone by now -- lost or tossed. I remember thinking that with the Artbox Harry Potter OOTP Update Brendan Gleeson situation. He and his people probably had no clue (and couldn't care less about) what became of those cards long before collectors gave up hope of them being returned. That's the cynic and the pessimist in me. Wink

I wish we could see all the blank auto cards that actually got printed up over the years in the hope they would get signed, but never were.

At least some samples exist, like Halle Berry/X-Men or even a couple of rare signed examples like Estella Warren/Planet of the Apes and Ian McKellen/Two Towers. I'm sure there are more I am forgetting.

One of my favourite cards I own is the unsigned James Gandolfini autograph card from The Sopraonos.
People slammed that set for a weak auto line up but when Inkworks went bust, and their warehouse inventory got dumped, it was amazing to see what they had planned for that set with near enough every major cast member involved (from what I remember blanks for 12 actors were found). Had all those actors been on board, what a set that would have been for the fans of the show.
I would have LOVED to have signed cards from Gandolfini, Edie Falco and Lorraine Bracco, and even in unsigned form, they are cherished items for this Sopranos fan because it is nice to think what could have been.

Maybe RA have already printed up Connery's cards. Wink

If there are only 7 packs per each $ 125 box, I don't know how someone can realistically obtain a 50 card base set, the chase, and the autos, without spending at least $ 4,000 to $ 5,000.

Even the 7 autos are 1 per every 2 boxes

Behind the Lens 20 card chase set, only 49 of each card made. Frown

The link says 7 cards per pack, 1 pack per box

Is that wrong ?

It says "seven one-card packs per box".
7 packs with 1 card in each.

Don't assume what this product is going to look like.

Yes, I think its only 7 cards per box, 1 card per pack, with 3 premium hits in every 7 packs. All cards, including the limited base cards, are really premium hits in that format.

However that is the straight physical product, but I keep reading on another site that physical cards will also be available via e-Packs. I am thinking it may be along the lines of what happened with Alien Anthology.

I wish someone would confirm that one way or the other since it makes a big difference in the supply.

Well there are some sketch cards according to the release info, it just doesn't say sketches of what. Wink Big Grin

I'm not sure what you mean exactly, but I don't think it's UD that won't allow likenesses. The studio, or whoever has the authority over the license, probably won't allow UD to commission likenesses. If they could, they would, don't you think?

the sketches have to stay in tune with the Comic Books & can't use character likenesses....

I've heard this from Multiple sources now.....

A couple of the autographs have turned up you know where and holy cow are they ugly. Between these and the latest Firely ones, I'd like to know who at Upper Deck thinks these type of designs are attractive and appealing because they're a total turn-off to me. Confused

They just released now, so I have only glimpsed one autograph card, the Swinton. It looks like it is formatted to appear as a doctor's pass/tag. If that is the design for all, well I guess they thought it appropriate for the title. It does not really match the characters though and is pretty white. It has odd checklist boxes for no reason and it actually says signature and a line for the sticker. Big Grin

It could be worse overall, but UD seems to not care about matching up characters to the card. Why would a non-doctor character have a faux pass? Why was Ripley and others identified as Colonial Marines on Alien Anthology dog tag cards when they were not and would not have worn dog tags? Minor points to some, but maybe not to obsessive card collectors like a few of us. Wink

On further examination the autograph cards are PERSCRIPTION PADS, me thinks. Hate to tell UD but its all electronic now, my doctors can't even write scripts anymore. Big Grin

Anyway, on a final note. I kept asking about these reports of Dr. Strange UD cards coming out as e-Packs. Nobody had a response here. I see now on Cardboard Connection an index tab for e-Pack checklist. It seems to be empty so far, but its there. There was a fairly long delay before Alien Anthology signatures started showing up in good numbers and even on exclusive cards not packed in the hobby boxes. Much of the supply came out with the Alien e-Packs. Just FYI. Smile

ePacks checklist is now filled in, for what it's worth.

Agree the auto cards seem to be prescription pads, stickered. They look stupid.

Also think the made-up patch cards, "booklet" cards, and coin cards, all look silly as well.
