2013 Upper Deck Iron Man 3 Trading Cards

Upper Deck hit on a successful formula with their Marvel movie sets. They blend elements from the films, comics and usually top things off with some strong autographs. For the most part, the 2013 Upper Deck Iron Man 3 trading cards hit all these marks.

The 60-card base set covers some of the key moments but doesn't really reveal too much as far as plot goes. This is one of the drawbacks of having a set like this come out the same time it hits theatres. Either assets aren't available, studios are reluctant for potential leaks and spoilers or a combination of the two to work against something more comprehensive.

All 60 base cards have Printing Plates as well as Palladium Poisoned parallels, which is really just a fancy name for the foil background they have added to them.

2013 Upper Deck Iron Man 3 autographs come from two fronts: actors and comic creators. Both are 1:48 hobby packs, which averages out to one per hobby box. As far as Upper Deck's Marvel movie sets go, this is one of their weaker Actor Autograph checklists. While that's not to say it's weak but with only four different signers, it doesn't have a lot of depth. It's also lacking many of the key big-name stars. Rebecca Hall and Jon Favreau aren't slouches, but they don't compare to Robert Downey Jr, Gwyneth Paltrow or Ben Kingsley.

While there are four signers, the set has a total of six different Actor Autographs. Favreau and William Sadler each have two separate cards. Favreau and Hall also have autographed costume cards.

Comic Creator Autographs feature some of the people who have worked on Iron Man comics over the years. Stan Lee highlights this list.

2013 Upper Deck Iron Man 3 has a large number of costume cards, which fall under the Heroic Threads banner. Anywhere from one to four swatches are featured on individual cards. There are also two extremely rare Patch cards that are virtually impossible to find. All Heroic Threads cards combine at a rate of two per hobby box.

More than 60 artists contributed sketch cards to the product. While the styles and level of detail vary from artist to artist, all are based on the comics and not directly tied to the movies.

The only other inserts available in hobby packs are called Hall of Armor. Done on clear acetate, they highlight Iron Man's always-growing arsenal of armors and styles.

2013 Upper Deck Iron Man 3 trading cards round out with 50 stickers. These are exclusive to retail, falling two per jumbo pack.
