User Rating:

2006 Artbox Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets falls in line with just about every other set for the franchise. Led by a somewhat extensive list of autographs, costume cards and prop cards, the chase element is tough. At the same time, the base set does a fantastic job of giving a trading cards spin to the second Harry Potter film.

Although 2006 Artbox Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is based one of the first films, it was actually the card maker's seventh set for the franchise. Artbox didn't get the Harry Potter trading card license until The Prisoner of Azkaban. However, the line's popularity led to Artbox going back and producing sets for both this film and The Sorcerer's Stone.

The 90-card base set kicks off with a header and 17 character cards. These give way to 71 story synopsis cards that retell the film. The set concludes with a checklist. The design of the set fits in line with other sets of Artbox Harry Potter trading cards. Character cards are vertically oriented with a photo on the front and essential info on the back. Story synopsis cards are horizontal. An action still takes up about three-quarters of the card with a small green ribbon and a caption at the bottom. The Harry Potter logo is done in gold foil. Card backs have generous write ups.

2006 Artbox Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets Autographs fall 1:48 packs. While none of the main cast appear in the lineup, several series regulars do. The most well known signature in the set belongs to Kenneth Branagh, a well-respected British actor who also directed Thor. Other autograph highlights include Richard Griffiths (Uncle Vernon), Harry Melling (Dudley Dursley) and Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley). Of the ten autographs in the set, six are distributed via redemption cards, which have since expired.

On average, boxes have one Costume Card. All 17 are serial numbered with print runs ranging from a high of 665 to a low of 165. Ten Prop Cards follow a similar but more rare pattern. Inserted 1:80, individual Prop Cards have numbered print runs between 115 and 290.

Cinema Film Cel cards are the fourth premium insert in 2006 Artbox Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Each card has a pair of actual cels from a print of the film embedded into them.

Basic inserts include nine foil cards and three box toppers. When arranged in a page, the backs of the foil cards make an over-sized puzzle.

2006 Atbox Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets also has several rare dealer incentives. The rarest is a Letter from Hogwarts prop card. Numbered to 64, it was given out as a 25-case incentive.
