A Close-Up Look at the 2013 Rittenhouse True Blood Archives Autographs

2013 Rittenhouse True Blood Archives is the second full release based on the show (there have also been a pair of small "Legends" factory sets). While the checklists are rounded, the big draw for both have been the autographs. True Blood Archives has 26 pack-inserted autographs as well as a pair of case incentives. 2013 Rittenhouse True Blood Archives Autographs fall two per box.

The checklist features nearly all of the lead stars, including Anna Paquin (Sookie Stackhouse) and Alexander Skarsgard (Erik Northman). Ryan Kwanten, who plays Sookie's brother Jason, also signed for the set. His signature was not a part of last year's Premiere Edition set.

The notable name that is missing is Stephen Moyer (Bill Compton). However, he has a silver ink autograph that's a six-case incentive. So while Moyer won't be found in packs, he's still part of the release. Deborah Ann Wall (Jessica Hamby) is the set's three-case incentive. Her autograph sticks with the traditional design used in the rest of the set.

Unlike Premiere Edition that used two different autograph designs, 2013 Rittenhouse True Blood Archives sticks with just the full-bleed look. This means that each signer only appears once in the set.

Below you'll find a complete visual gallery of all the autographs in the set. Following that is a checklist of all the pack-inserted cards sorted by rarity.

Did you notice that some of these have been on hand a long time? Rittenhouse posted a picture of the full bleed Paquin on fb back before premiere edition came out and now it’s in this set. We are seeing the silver edition Moyer but they teased the silver edition A-skars back then too

NickNifty Rittenhouse does a good job of planning in advance in this regard. It helps them work ahead. More importantly, it means consistently strong lineups with no redemptions.
