1997 Fleer/SkyBox Batman and Robin Widevision Trading Cards

The movie might suck (except for the brutally honest director's commentary on the DVD), but 1997 Fleer/SkyBox Batman and Robin Widevision is a fantastic set of trading cards. Part of that's because you don't have to listen to any of the horrible dialogue said out lout. But, oh that autograph checklist. It's one of the best ever put in set of trading cards.

Seriously.

George Clooney, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Uma Thurman, Alicia Silverstone, Chris O'Donnell, Joel Schumacher -- there are only six signers, the least of which would be solid in most releases today. Back in 1997, it was five A-listers and one of the industry's most marketable directors.

Inserted 1:720 hobby packs, autographs have never been in large supply. But that rarity helps fuel their long-term appeal as well.

The base set is a relatively small 70 cards. Of that, only 35 are dedicated to recapping the story. That should've been a telltale sign of the plot's quality right there. The next 34 cards are "Soundbites," highlighting lines.

Storyboards are the most common inserts, landing one per pack. These breakdown four different sequences, each getting six cards.

Profiles (12 cards, 1:3 packs) look at different characters.

For those looking to hang something on their walls, five Mini Posters (1:6) offer an even bigger take on the film's leads.

Celluloid Action cards have film cels embedded in them.

The "Widevision" in 1997 Fleer/SkyBox Batman and Robin Widevision comes from the over-sized format every card in the release has, similar to Topps' Star Wars Widevision cards and several sports card releases over the years.
