But what about the back of the cards? Your set won't be complete without all the fun facts and statistics that are printed on the back!

This looks like it could be a fun, and cool comic. I might have to check it out, but I don't care about the cards.

No, worse! :shock:

We used to have a display case where we kept all of the higher end packs of cards, packs that were usually $40 or more. It was our store policy that customers were not allowed to feel those packs in order to get some type of advantage over other customers who would just pick their packs and leave. Grown men would literally throw hissy fits because we wouldn't allow them to weigh them or try to bend them to figure out if the packs had swatch cards or other such nonsense. They were ridiculous and they were generally worse than the creepy guys who were mostly content to stand around discussing whether or not Gambit was "good enough" for Rogue.


:lol:

LOVE this!

Bring back more of the 90's!

I have almost a complete set of the Jim Lee X-men cards, and I have a complete set of the G.I. Joe cards that came out back then.

Pre-internet, how else could you legitimately argue that Hero A could kick the shit out of Hero B's ass? :D

You couldn't! If you didn't have the character's card, there was no way that you could back up your argument. :P

I have a full set of Todd McFarlane Spider-Man cards somewhere. I got some other stuff too.

My brother and I had a HUGE box of collector cards. We had all kinds of awesome stuff, including a Wayne Gretzky rookie card, but it took some water damage and my mom threw them out. We salvaged what we could and I found my Michael Jordan card and some other crap.

I for one am glad to see that Bendis is going with Giffen's version of Drax as opposed to what DnA morphed him into at the end of the Thanos Imperative.
