2005 Inkworks Serenity Trading Cards

Not many shows that last one season spawn a feature film. Unscientific research says even fewer of those movies arrived in theatres with a set of trading cards. 2005 Inkworks Serenity is the exception. And what a notable one it is.

The set is highlighted by a deep autograph lineup that's pretty much only key stars from the ensemble cast.

2005 Inkworks Serenity trading cards start with 72 base. Most of it recaps the movie, however there are subsets for characters, production art and behind-the-scenes action.

Autographs are inserted one per box. Nine of the ten signers are members of the Serenity crew. These include Nathan Fillion, Summer Glau, Jewel Staite and Morena Baccarin. The tenth? Chiwetel Ejiofor, an Academy Award nominee who has gone on to have a strong Hollywood career that still might be on the rise. So while not all of the autographs are top-line, this set is a rare instance where one can't go totally south if you're a fan of the franchise.

Pieceworks cards are also box hits. The set features costume swatches from eight different characters. None are duplicated.

Packs have two additional inserts included. Nine Renegades cards go together to form a puzzle montage of the Serenity crew. The six-card Women of Serenity uses a bit of sparkle foil and the cards are die-cut.

The 2005 Inkworks Serenity checklist is rounded out by three box loaders and a case topper. Each box also includes a card advertising a line of action figures.

With this set going on to be a hit, Inkworks went on to produce a Firefly set as well.
