2006 Rittenhouse Complete Avengers Trading Cards

2006 Rittenhouse Complete Avengers trading cards is the first set dedicated to the Marvel super-team and, until that point, more than four decades of comic history. While it's comprehensive is several regards, it's the sketch card lineup that stands out the most today.

The 81-card base set goes through the major events of the team including big battles and team shakeups. It concludes with the run up to the original Civil War storyline that would go on to be one of the biggest films ever a decade later.

The 2006 Rittenhouse Complete Avengers sketch cards take things up a notch in a couple of regards. Most noticeable is the fact that virtually all of them are done in color. At this time, the level of quality and detail varied greatly in the hobby. Most sketch cards were still just that.

The checklist features several notable artists both in the hobby and several who have since shifted to the mainstream comic world.

Still, there's one name that stands out above them all. Oddly, these are the only cards not in color. But when Marvel icon Stan Lee draws sketch cards, detail isn't such a big deal. He did 100 cards for the Complete Avengers.

Of course, there are a few other insert sets as well. Legendary Heroes centers on the biggest names and founders of the team. At 1:40 packs, it's one of the product's tougher portions. Earth's Mightiest Heroes uses foil to recreate modern covers in trading card form. Finally, there's Greatest Enemies, a puzzle collage featuring many iconic Marvel villains.

History runs throughout a few other cards not available in packs. Gene Colon has an autograph that came with the 2006 Rittenhouse Complete Avengers binder. A Roy Thomas signed card came as a case topper.

Those ordering two cases received an over-sized Archives Cuts card. These have full panels from early Avengers comic books. While the idea has been used several times since, this was the first set to do so.
