2002 Topps Dark Angel Trading Cards

Dark Angel arrived on TV with high hopes. And why shouldn't it have? James Cameron, already one of the most successful directors in history (and this was before Avatar), was one of its creators. He was still riding high off of Titanic and the show looked to take him back to his Sci-fi roots. It was buzz-worthy enough to land a set of cards. Unfortunately, the show never really caught on, but the 2002 Topps Dark Angel trading cards feature two of the most coveted cards of the early aughts.

Today, the draw for the set comes in the form of a couple of autographs. James Cameron is a biggie, even though he's a behind-the-camera personality -- something that usually doesn't translate into a lot of hobby interest. But not every director can say they made the two biggest box office draws of all-time.

However, the most valuable 2002 Topps Dark Angel card belongs to Jessica Alba. At the time, she was a rising star. Now she's not only a beautiful and well-known actress, but quite the entrepreneur as well. The 2002 Topps Dark Angel Jessica Alba autograph regularly tops $500 whenever it shows up for sale now.

Besides Alba and Cameron, there are a handful of other autographs featuring lead characters, but none are overly exciting. Autographs combine to land 1:33 hobby packs. Retail packs have the potential for just one signature, Byron Mann, who is not in the hobby version.

That's important to know if you're looking to roll the dice on a box of 2002 Topps Dark Angel trading cards. Hobby boxes come with 36 packs while retail boxes have just 24. You will not find Jessica Alba autographs in retail boxes.

The product's only other inserts are five embossed foil cards. Landing 1:6 packs, they're not tough to find.

The 2002 Topps Dark Angel base set has 72 cards. If you're a Jessica Alba fan, she's featured on the majority of them. Photos are a mix of stills from episodes and promo shots.
