Product Details

User Rating:

2012 Upper Deck Marvel Beginnings III concludes on of the more ambitious comic-based trading card sets in recent times.

From the outset, the Marvel Beginnings line was planned as a three-part series, giving collectors a small encyclopedia of character-themed cards about the Marvel Universe.

2012 Upper Deck Marvel Beginnings III Set Details

The 2012 Upper Deck Marvel Beginnings III base set includes another 180 base cards, bringing the full set to 540 cards. Numbering starts at 361, maintaining the line's continuity.

Inserts continue to be abundant in the release, adding angles beyond just the characters. Every pack has a Breakthrough Issues card that looks at key issues from big-time lines. Villains Die-Cut Cards focus on the bad guys of the Marvel Universe. Fall every other pack, these cards follow in the footsteps of similar X-Men and Avengers inserts from the first two Marvel Beginnings sets. Marvel Prime Micromotion cards return, inserted 1:2 packs.

Every 2012 Upper Deck Marvel Beginnings III box has either a sketch card or a Breakthrough Issues Autograph. Sketch cards include original art done directly on the card. Because they come from a wide variety of artists, their styles can vary greatly. On top of that, the huge number of characters provides even more variety. Autographs come from both writers and artists. Past Marvel Beginnings sets have included the likes of Stan Lee and Brian Michael Bendis.

Avengers HoloFX gives Earth's mightiest heroes the hologram treatment. A rare hit, they fall 1:72 packs. Inserted at the same rate are Ultimate Panel Focus cards, which include an embedded piece of an original comic book.

Product Configuration: 7 cards per pack, 24 packs per box

Just noticed that Base card number 449 is not Bug, it’s Power Man (Victor Alvarez).


These look awesome. I need to get these. I like the color scheme and the inserts. Sketch cards too. More on card autos needed
