1997 Inkworks Men In Black Trading Cards

Alien hunting has never been as cool as it was was in Men in Black. And while it doesn't have the same premium flavor the sequel's set would have, 1997 Inkworks Men In Black trading cards do have a cool look. It's just fairly simple by today's standards.

The majority of the 90-card base set consists of recaps of the film's story. Towards the end are a couple of subsets called Dossiers and Aliens that dig a little deeper into the characters, creatures and such.

1997 Inkworks Men In Black has just one autograph. And it doesn't belong to Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones or any of the film's other stars. Rather, it's Lowell Cunningham, the creator of the original MIB comic. Inserted 1:1,140 packs, the card is extremely rare.

The set's other inserts may not be fancy by today's standards. But back when the set came out, the hobby was in a different place. Cards In Black use a matte finish to go along with the single-colored illustrations. Eleven Alien Profiles cards come die-cut. Finall, there's five Foilworks cards that are done just as they sound -- with foil.
