Cutting Up Expensive Comics

To Make Trading Cards

Published: 05/10/2011 01:03am
Upper Deck’s new Marvel Beginnings release (see “’Marvel Beginnings Series 1’ Trading Cards”) includes Marvel Ultimate Collection Panel Focus insert cards, trading cards that incorporate a piece of a rare comic.  Amazing Spider-Man #2 is one of the rare comics used for the Panel Cards. 
 
“Upper Deck has secured several original issues of old Marvel comic books and is strategically cutting them up to comprise the Marvel Ultimate Collection Panel Focus insert cards,” Bubby Johanson, Upper Deck Marvel Product Manager, explained.  “We anticipate getting our fair share of reactions, both good and bad, from comic book collectors and trading card collectors.”
 
Panel cards are the rarest insert cards, at one per case.  Sketch and autograph cards combine to fall one per box in almost a 50/50 ratio, according to the company. 
 
The autograph signers did less than 100 apiece, with Stan Lee, Tom Orzechowski, and Joe Sinnott at 20 or less per card.
