2001 Topps Marvel Legends Trading Cards

Topps and Marvel have a history together that dates back several decades. However, it has been something of a stop-start relationship that never seemed to build a lasting series or brand. Case in point, 2001 Topps Marvel Legends trading cards. Despite the many Marvel sets from the card maker over the years, this is the first to pay close attention to the characters.

The 72-card base set does just that. All but the the checklist that concludes things is dedicated to a specific hero or villain. Fronts feature a modern spin on the character with a background that is a sort of digital pop art. It's loud, colorful and original pieces as opposed to recycled art from the books or other products. Backs offer up a profile of the character.

All 72 cards have a Foil parallel. These are only in retail packs and land one per.

The biggest inserts in 2001 Topps Marvel Legends are sketch cards. These have art done on the card itself. The set-up has the blank sketch cards done to resemble covers. They then have a character from that book drawn on them. Each of the 16 artists that worked on the set appear to have only done one cover. Sketch cards are inserted one per hobby box.

2001 Topps Marvel Legends has a couple of other insert sets as well. Secret Identity cards have a static cling sticker of the hero on top. Once they're peeled off, they reveal who's hiding under the mask.

Costume Change showcases alternate outfits characters have worn on the pages of their respective books. Similar to the Evolution A and B inserts in 2001 Topps Star Wars Evolution, these come in two tiers making Costume Change B cards a little bit tougher.

Hobby boxes include one of four different Ultimate Spider-Man cards. Done in foil, these reprint the covers of the first four issues of the then new comic.
