2004 Artbox Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban Trading Cards

2004 Artbox Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban helped launch one of the most successful and impressive trading card lines of all-time. It's not the first set based on the film franchise (that belongs to Wizards of the Coast's Sorcerer's Stone release) but it did take things to another level with its mix of autographs, costume cards and autographs.

And the base set isn't bad, either. It has 90 cards, recapping much of the movie minus some key spoilers and effects shots. Those would come in the Update set that came a few months later.

The autograph lineup isn't the strongest of Artbox's Harry Potter trading cards but it's still quite a strong mix. Headlining the initial lineup of Harry Potter autographs is Emma Watson who played Hermione Granger. Other key signers include Gary Oldman (Sirius Black) and Michael Gambon (Dumbledore).

2004 Artbox Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban also has a fairly sizable checklist of costume and prop cards. All of these are serial numbered. Understandably, those with lower print runs generally carry the highest prices. Complicating things a little is the fact that a few of these cards were exclusive to certain parts of the world or used as incentives.

Hobby and retail packs each have their own set of foil cards. This would be common in most of Artbox's Harry Potter sets.

With a print run of 500 cases, this is one of the rarest sets of Harry Potter trading cards. The set was an immediate hit, which sent box prices soaring. They're tough to come by now. The moderate print run also meant that some of the tough cards were a little easier to pull, something that shifted greatly when production soared for the Update set.
