Like any fine piece of machinery, Tony Stark has made many adjustments and variations on his trademark Iron Man armor. It's also a great way to adjust stories for the many comic, movie and television stories the hero has appeared in. With many incarnations of Iron Man armor a part of Iron Man 3, it seems only natural that an insert set follows. 2013 Upper Deck Iron Man 3 Hall of Armor showcases many of the suits with one of the most attractive basic insert sets to appear in an entertainment trading card set this year.
Hall of Armor is a 22-card set done on acetate card stock. This gives the cards a plastic feel. It also leaves much of the card clear. A close-up of the mask is enhanced with a couple of small ribbons of holofoil, giving the cards a bit of added shine. Next to that is a full-body look at the armor.
2013 Upper Deck Iron Man 3 Hall of Armor cards are inserted 1:36 hobby packs, which is about one in every 1.5 boxes. Although Upper Deck hasn't confirmed short prints, cards 21 and 22 have appeared in much lower quantities during early eBay listings. The final card in the set looks as though it could be especially rare and is selling for a premium as collectors try to finish their sets.
