2003 Inkworks Tomb Raider: Cradle of Life Trading Cards

So the movie was forgettable. At least for being anything outside of a vehicle for Angelina Jolie to flex her action vixen chops. In a lot of ways, it's the same with the 2003 Inkworks Tomb Raider: Cradle of Life trading cards. Remove the Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft elements and you're left with a sorry set. However, between the autograph and costume cards, the set is actually better than the movie it's based on.

A total of 81 cards make up the base set. It's a standard mix of character profiles, story cards and behind-the-scenes shots. There are also a handful of cards that focus on Lara Croft's gear.

Of the set's six autographs, the only one that's widely recognizable is the one you'd hope for -- Angelina Jolie. This is her second time signing for Inkworks. She also has an autograph in the set for the first Tomb Raider movie. From there, the second biggest name in the set is Ciaran Hinds, so it's quite a drop off. Gerard Butler does not have any autographs in the product. Signed cards are inserted one per box.

Also landing one per box are Pieceworks cards. These have swatches of screen-used costumes. Both in this set are from Jolie.

Other inserts in 2003 Inkworks Tomb Raider: Cradle of life are a nine-card foil puzzle and Secret of the Orb, a die-cut foil set.
