2010 Upper Deck Iron Man 2 Trading Cards

2010 Upper Deck Iron Man 2 trading cards helped build the template for the card maker's other sets based on the Marvel cinematic universe. Featuring a mix of traditional and premium elements, there's something for most types of collectors -- as long as they can handle the disappointing movie.

The base set is 75 cards. It's limited in scope in recapping the movie itself. That's likely because not everything was available for the set when it went into production. The checklist is fleshed out with behind-the-scenes and Iron Man armor subsets.

Hobby boxes come with a total of three premium inserts. Two are sketch cards. Limited to Marvel comic art, they don't connect to the movie. In fact, a lot of the cards have characters like Spider-Man and other members of the Avengers who have nothing to do with Iron Man 2.

Memorabilia cards land one per hobby box. These come with a piece of costume. Characters represented in the set include Tony Stark, Pepper Potts and Natasha Romanoff. Most consider the set to have 11 cards. However, there's also a twelfth card with a piece of Iron Man armor. This card is incredibly rare.

Autographs are also tough to pull. They average about one in four hobby boxes. There aren't many signers, but they're solid. Signers include Academy Award nominees Don Cheadle (Rhodey Rhodes) and Mickey Rourke (Ivan Vanko), Jon Favreau (Happy Hogan and director) and Leslie Bibb (Christine Everhart).

On top of these are three additional basic inserts. Actors highlights the film's stars, including Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow, with a die-cut design. Both Armored and Classic Covers use varying amounts of embossing. Classic Covers recreates iconic art with a foil embossed border. Armored looks Tony Stark's many creations.

Like all of Upper Deck's Marvel movie sets, Iron Man 2 remains popular, largely because of its premium elements. Even without signatures from Downey and Paltrow, there's a lot going on to keep it relevant years later.
