Digging deeper into the world of X-Men comics, 2021 Upper Deck Marvel X-Men Metal Universe highlights key heroes and villains with foil-filled designs from UD, Skybox and Fleer.
Every box should contain multiple parallels and inserts. For the average Hobby box, this means three Gold parallels, one numbered parallel, two Grandiose parallels and one Palladium insert.
2021 Upper Deck Marvel X-Men Metal Universe Base / Parallels
Offering 100 base cards and another 100 High Series cards, the 2021 Upper Deck Marvel X-Men Metal Universe checklist looks across the X-Men Universe.
Among six options, parallels include numbered Pink and Purple (1/1) editions, as well as the famed Precious Metal Gems (PMG). These total 100 cards each, with the first 10 copies being Green PMG and the final 90 switched to Red PMG (#11/100 to #100/100).
In addition, the Grandiose parallels fall two per box.
2021 Upper Deck Marvel X-Men Metal Universe Inserts
The Upper Deck Marvel X-Men Metal Universe inserts really kick the '90s nostalgia into gear. This includes Planet Metal, which features metal stock and limited parallels.
Platinum Portraits displays new character images with a stippling effect (i.e. small dots).
There's also Palladium (1 per box), featuring die-cut acetate stock.
Additional inserts in the 2021 Upper Deck Marvel X-Men Metal Universe lineup include Geodes shadowbox cards with short print (SP) and super short print (SSP) chase cards. These mimic the vivid rocks with colorful interiors.
As the name suggests, Purely Periodic uses the Periodic Table of Elements to classify notable heroes. This set offers character-specific print runs, as well.
Collectors can also find all-new inserts showcasing foil board that mimics a metal design. Arc Weld opts for a metal-style frame and sparks.
On the other hand, Blast Furnace goes with a much more fiery look.
On top of that, premium hits include Cut Comic cards with actual clippings from the different comics book ages, as well as 1995 Marvel Metal Buybacks and one-of-one Sketch cards
