2005 Rittenhouse Battlestar Galactica Premiere Edition Trading Cards

2005 Rittenhouse Battlestar Galactica Premiere Edition trading cards center on the mini-series that launched the reboot. It also introduced the hobby to a new cast of characters and actors. Like all the sets for the show that would follow, autographs and costume cards are a focal point. Both are inserted one per box.

The 72-card base set offers a detailed breakdown of the mini-series that showcased a re-imagined story. The characters were largely the same, albeit some cast in very different lights, but the tone is much grittier and dark. Most base sets have an entire season to draw from as well as character cards and other subsets. 2005 Rittenhouse Battlestar Galactica Premiere Edition has a title card and three checklists. The remaining 68 cards are all recaps.

The 13-card autograph checklist features enough key stars to be considered impressive. However, there's still plenty of names not included. Most would come in ensuing sets over the next handful of years. Leading the signers here are the show's two breakout female stars: Katee Sackhoff (Starbuck) and Tricia Helfer (Number Six).

All the autographs but one are included in packs. Callum Keith Rennie is included with the set's binder. There's also a dual autograph with Sackhoff and Jamie Bamber that was given out as a six-case incentive.

Six different characters are featured in the eight-card From the Archives costume card set. Each has a piece of wardrobe included in the card.

2005 Rittenhouse Battlestar Galactica Premiere Edition has three additional insert sets available in packs: Roll Call, Cylon Threat and the die-cut Quotable Battlestar Galactica.

A couple of sketch cards were produced for the set, although both are incentives. Chris Henderson cards are case toppers. Two-case incentive color SketchaFEX cards are done by Warren Martinek.
