2001 Inkworks X-Files Seasons 4 and 5 Trading Cards

2001 Inkworks X-Files Seasons 4 and 5 trading cards marked a fresh start for the franchise. After simple sets based on seasons one, two and three from Topps, plus off-shoots for the first movie and more, the license changed hands. And with it came a new vision that stressed more inserts including autographs. It also meant an end to some of the strange dated art cards Topps made a lot of.

The 2001 Inkworks X-Files Seasons 4 and 5 base set has 90 cards. Each episode for both seasons is summed up on one card. Additional subsets delve into the characters, go behind the camera and look at some of the paranormal beings from the show.

The is the first seasonal set of X-Files trading cards to have signed cards. Fight the Future had a few but none for the regular releases covering the early seasons. There are five autographs here, all of which were distributed via redemption. The biggest comes from series creator Chris Carter. And while she played a rather small part on the X-Files, for Walking Dead fans, this is a much more affordable place to get a Laurie Holden autograph.

2001 Inkworks X-Files Seasons 4 and 5 is also notable for having the franchise's first Pieceworks costume cards. It's just one card, but it comes from one of Mulder's sweatshirts. Inkworks would go on to make several more autographs and Pieceworks cards with the license.

The basic insert assortment is slightly different than most Inkworks sets. Black Oil (six cards, 1:17 packs) look as though they have some alien ooze on top. Usually, Inkworks does nine-card puzzles. I Want to Believe has just three. The final inserts are three Death Cards (1:48) that are done to look like playing cards.

There's also one box loader and a case loader. Both are promos for the Seasons 6 and 7 set that arrived a few months later as Inkworks tried to catch up with the show while it was on the air.
