Why is it so hard to find the retail Topps X MEN 2 chase cards? I never see them on E-bay. Were they short printed?
I am referring to the CLEAR CARDS, of which I was only able to pull C2, C3 and C4 (of 5) from packs and...
The PRISMATIC FOIL CARDS, of which I only pulled 4, 5, 6 and 7 (of 10).

Yes, I've found these are impossible to find as well - I wonder why?

I think I am one short of each from the having all the clear and prismatic cards, but to be honest I have all but given up looking!

If you want to trade or sell, I am interested!

I found all my cards from packs at Target and Meijer.

Just to clarify, you mean Prismatic Foil Card #7 Rogue, correct? I have not heard them referred to as X-Treme foil for X-Men 2. And the Prismatic Foil card #7 IS ROGUE.

Cardaddict,

I'm going by the nomenclature given to the sets in Jeff Allenders website.

I agree, these are very hard to come by. I've been searching for awhile, but never had much luck on ebay. In fact, I've seen the Bryan Singer auto more times than these inserts, and that's saying something considering the Singer is 1 in 4000+ packs.

Anyways, if anyone wants to quit his/her search, I'll gladly trade for the singles you have. (Currently, I only have foils 1,2,3 and the C4 clear card...)

Wish me luck Razz

UPDATE - After opening some retail packs, I now have the following:
Foils #1-7 + extra # 3 & 5
Clear #C1-C4 + extra # C3

If anyone has foils 8-10 or C5, I would be willing to trade my extras in your favor.

UPDATE - Looks like I'm the only one actively collecting this stuff. Opened some more retail packs and got a #10 foil I needed, plus some extras as trade bait. Here's the tally so far:

Foils #1-7, 10 + extra #3, 5, 10
Clear #C1-C4 + extra #C3 (x3!)

Just need foils #8,9 and C5 now. The hunt continues....

I'm still actively collecting them, but I have no clue where to find these cards. I mainly only check Ebay and one local monthly card show, and never see them.

+1

I'd love to finish my set but they are scarce I only have one spare for trade (Nightcrawler foil). As for buying singles... hen's teeth are easier to find! And I don't fancy paying to ship retail boxes overseas to potentially pull doubles. Oh to be 2 cards away with no end in sight!

+2

I've exhausted all my options as well. I googled "topps x-men" and found a couple websites that had unopened packs. I bought all their stock (29 total packs), but was still unable to finish the set.

I wonder why these cards are so rare? Retail for X-Men 1 is so plentiful that you can't even give it away.....while X-Men 2 is nowhere to be found. I know X-Men 2 was heavily advertised (ie. there were all sorts of fast food related promos, which were not available for part 1), so it doesn't make sense that Topps would limit the retail supply this much. There has to be a warehouse of this stuff sitting somewhere waiting to be discovered....I just know it!

Email sent!

I think I have an unopened retail box here somewhere, but I have no intention of opening it at the present time because: 1.They may be hard to get? and 2. I consider an unopened box part of the Master Set.
