2013 Upper Deck Thor: The Dark World Trading CardsBrand: Marvel
2013 Upper Deck Thor: The Dark World tackles the blockbuster sequel with a broad mix of base cards, inserts and hits. Put together, they make for a comprehensive set that covers both the film and the comic that laid its foundation.
2013 Upper Deck Thor: The Dark World has a 60-card base set that covers the film, or at least what's made available in time to be included with the set. Today, movie studios are busy working on special effects until the last possible moment. This can make it tough for a trading card set that has to be prepped in advance. Still, the base set should give a solid overview of the film's characters and central plot. Just look at it as a compliment to seeing the film. A base set parallel is done with acrylic stock. The release also has Printing Plates.
Behind-the-scenes and promotional artwork is covered with cards dedicated to Thor: The Dark World movie posters and concept art.
Book of Yggdrasil cards require a special decoder (also inserted in packs) to translate parts of legends.
2013 Upper Deck Thor: The Dark World hobby boxes come with either a sketch card or an autograph. Autographs fall under a couple of umbrellas. Comic Book Creator Autographs are all signed on-card. Actor Autographs include several of the film's stars. Signers include Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Zachary Levi (Fandral), Jamie Alexander (Sif), Kat Dennings (Darcy Lewis) and Ray Stevenson (Volstagg). While Hemsworth is likely to draw a lot of attention as the lead actor in the film, Levi has a large fan following also thanks, in large part, to the lead role on Chuck. This is also his first certified autograph in a licensed trading card set.
