Rise of the Planet of the Apes Autographs

Despite a long history of Planet of the Apes trading cards, no set was made for the surprisingly awesome Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which has seen equally surprisingly strong box office returns. Apes fans just need to get a little more creative to build an unofficial collection for the film.

Five actors with key roles in the movie, including the two biggest, have both signed autograph cards before. James Franco was a part of Rittenhouse's lineup for Spider-man 3 in 2007. Although one of the key cards in the set immediately upon its release, the card's standing in the hobby (and its price) have risen. Academy Award nominations and co-hosting gigs will do that.

The other biggie in this DIY set is a man whose face rarely appears on screen. In fact, unless there's some hidden cameo I didn't catch, he's not seen in human form at all in Rise of the Planet of the Apes. I'm talking about Andy Serkis, the person behind the CG for Lord of the Rings' Gollum and Peter Jackson's King Kong remake. Here, Serkis again steals the film as Caesar, the ape who would trigger an uprising. Serkis has two autographs from his time muttering about pieces of jewelry.
