2016 Upper Deck Alien Anthology Trading Cards – ePack ReleaseBrand: UD Entertainment
Chronicling each of the four movies in cardboard form, 2016 Upper Deck Alien Anthology looks back at the storied franchise with a comprehensive release. Top options include sketch cards and actor autographs.
Focusing on artwork instead of movie images, classic scenes are depicted with a variety of original art across a 100-card base set. Foil base parallels combine with standard insert to average one per pack.
A list of signers is not yet available but a key component of the release will be Autographs for top names in the overall film series and some will be short-printed. Another premium option, one-of-one Sketch cards offer original interpretations for notable characters and moments in Alien history.
Adding a non-traditional wrinkle to the mix, replica Marine Dog Tags (1:20 packs) can also be found as well as a limited Dog Tag Autograph (1:4 cases - #/5) parallel that is signed by select actors.
More traditional inserts each fall at 1:7.5 packs and include Character Bios, Weyland Yutani Propaganda Posters and artwork from the Legendary Encounters deck-building game.
Building on the base and select inserts are one-of-one Press Plates.
Several card products have been released for the Alien movies over the years, with the first coming from Topps in 1979.
UPDATE: 2016 Upper Deck Alien Anthology is available through ePack and is the first non-sport option for UD ePack collectors. The format is the same as the regular release with five cards per pack and 20 packs per box. Ian Holm is an ePack-exclusive autograph option.
Just like the other releases on ePack, base cards can be combined for exclusive parallels and full sets yield achievement cards. Those that collect ten of the same digital base cards can unlock an exclusive physical Red parallel and ten Red Foil parallels can be made into a physical Orange Foil.
Set collectors can earn even more tangible cards:
- Complete a space Marine Dog Tags set (15 cards) to earn the exclusive SP1 achievement card.
- Complete a Base Red Foil parallel set (94 cards) to earn the exclusive SP2 achievement card.
- Complete a Base Orange Foil parallel set (94 cards) to earn the exclusive SP3 achievement card.
The ultimate set chase, an exclusive Quad Autograph featuring Sigourney Weaver, Bill Paxton, Charles S. Dutton, and Ron Perlman can be redeemed by making a digital master set. This rare physical card is earned by collecting each of the following sets on ePack:
- Base Set - 94 cards
- Base Set W-Y Silver Foil parallel - 94 cards
- Wayland Yutani Propaganda Art - 10 cards
- Character Bios - 12 cards
- Legendary Game Art - 8 cards
- Achievement Set - 3 cards
The first ten collectors to complete the full set by 9/29/2016 will have the Quad Autograph added to their account with the ability to have the physical version mailed to them.
Also, basic Alien packs will be among the free daily options when collectors check into their accounts.
