2014 Cryptozoic Downton Abbey Seasons 1 and 2 Trading CardsBrand: Cryptozoic
At first thought, some might think of Downton Abbey as a curious trading card choice. It actually has a lot to offer, particularly for a modern release. And that's exactly the angle 2014 Crytpozoic Downton Abbey Seasons 1 and 2 trading cards take. Autographs, wardrobe cards, sketch cards and more take on the high-rated, critically acclaimed period drama from the UK.
The 2014 Cryptozoic Downton Abbey Seasons 1 and 2 base set has 72 cards. These include images and content from the first 15 episodes (a lot of British shows have much shorter seasons than their American counterparts).
With the show set about 100 years in the past, Mini Cigarette cards make perfect sense. They're done in the style of tobacco cards that came out around the time the show was set.
One of Downton Abbey's greatest strengths is its cast. It's large and features many respected names. They may not be part of the blockbuster scene, at least not yet, but don't be surprised if several of these actors continue to ascend the Hollywood ranks. Names include Hugh Bonneville, Elizabeth McGovern, Michelle Dockery and Maggie Smith. While names and insertion rates have not been released yet, this deep cast bodes well for the autographs in 2014 Cryptozoic Downton Abbey Seasons 1 and 2.
Wardrobe Cards have material used in making the show's intricate costumes. Sketch Cards based on the actors are also in the plans for the set.
Sold separately, there's also a binder that comes with an exclusive card.
