1998 Topps X-Files: Fight the Future Trading Cards

Finally, a set of X-Files trading cards with autographs. Granted, David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson aren't among them, but there are still signed cards after a handful of previous releases. Based on the feature film, 1998 Topps X-Files: Fight the Future trading cards dig into the story, go behind the camera and finally offer collectors something somewhat premium for the franchise.

The base set has 72 cards. It follows a similar pattern to Topps' season-based X-Files sets. The majority of the content is a recap of key plot points. There are also character profiles and some behind-the-scenes cards.

Autographs are inserted 1:72 packs, which translates into 1:3 boxes. The names encompass secondary characters (at best). William B. Davis (The Cigarette-Smoking Man) and Mitch Pileggi (Skinner) are the most recognizable faces.

1998 Topps X-Files: Fight the Future has just one other insert set. Six Mystery Cards (1:12 packs) use heat-sensitive technology to reveal images.
