2017 Upper Deck Alien Movie Trading CardsBrand: UD Entertainment
An iconic film in the world of science fiction, 2017 Upper Deck Alien brings back the scary good debut for an updated cardboard take. In this instance, old-school designs are joined by modern hits, which fall two per box.
Of course, this is not the first set to detail the original movie. The 1979 Topps Alien release gave collectors their earliest taste of Alien trading cards. Also, UD previously offered an overall look at the franchise with 2016 Upper Deck Alien Anthology.
2017 Upper Deck Alien Base / Inserts
Going retro in honor of the 1979 film, the 2017 Upper Deck Alien base set features 100 cards highlighting movie footage. The "retro" aspect comes into play for both the design and the card stock. Applying a more current component of the hobby, parallels include Silver Foil, Blue Foil (#/99), Red Foil (#/25) and Canvas (#/15). There are also one-of-one Printing Plate cards that were used in the production of the set.
Consisting of seven different options, the inserts offer background details such as behind the scenes information and deleted scenes.
2017 Upper Deck Alien Hits
Providing a diverse supply of premium hits, the 2017 Upper Deck Alien checklist features authentic signatures as well as a variety of relics. Each box delivers one manufactured Semiotic Patch, which highlights the symbols used to note specific items in the film.
All other hits combine to represent the second premium pull in each box. These include hobby staples like Autographs and hand-drawn Sketch cards. The more unique choices consist of Android Parts, which is a manufactured relic set based around Ash, the robotic crew member on the Nostromo. Meanwhile, Mineral Ore offers actual pieces of mined rock. Most likely to elicit a squeal of delight (or terror), the Alien Egg Shadow Box cards have something waiting inside.
Estimated Release Date: November 2017
Product Configuration: 5 cards per pack, 18 packs per box, 12 boxes per case
