Evoking a prior era of trading cards, 2019 Flair Marvel transports collectors back to the days of the 1990s brand but adds in some modern elements to keep things interesting.
Similar to Upper Deck's Marvel Masterpieces line, 2019 Flair Marvel features original artwork and premium cards for superheroes from the Marvel Universe.
2019 Flair Marvel Base Cards
Providing all new artwork, the 90-card base set in 2019 Flair Marvel offers the talent of Bill Sienkiewicz, Dave DeVries, Kathryn Steele, Ray Lago and Tom Fleming, among others.
There are versions signed by the artists themselves, as well.
2019 Flair Marvel Inserts
With one specialty insert expected in each pack, the 2019 Flair Marvel checklist also works in a lot of variety. There are 37 different Pieces of Flair cards, which incorporate manufactured patches that mimic the look of famous comic book corners.
Other options include Lucky 8's, which are a new take on Precious Metal Gems (PMG), as well as the plexiglass Stained Glass, LTFX-based Power Blast Spectrum, and Through the Ages, which compares the transformation of a character from their comic debut versus the present period.
In addition, Singularity uses silhouettes to display famous heroes while the die-cut Totemic Teams is done in a way that allows collectors to "stack" those aligned with specific groups.
Falling one per pack, the 60-card Flairium insert set specifically highlights the work of E.M. Gist, Jeff Easley, Jim Pavelec, Jonathan Wayshak, Peach Momoko, and Sean "Cheeks" Galloway. Chase options include artist autograph versions.
