2004 Rittenhouse Art and Images of Xena: Warrior Princess Trading Cards

2004 Rittenhouse Art and Images of Xena: Warrior Princess trading cards take a somewhat different approach to the series. It looks at Xena and friends through more of an artistic lens, both in the designs and most of the insert themes.

The 63-card base set is large focused on characters. What makes the cards stand out is the approach to the design. First, the images have been run through a filter to give them a painted look. Further adding to this is the canvas-like stock they're printed on.

As far as chase elements go, sketch cards are the main draw. They're inserted one per box and feature the work of 11 artists. Each did anywhere from 250 cards to a high of 1,200. 2004 Rittenhouse Art and Images of Xena came out when sketch cards were still fairly new as a box hit. As a result, the level of detail varies. Most here are black and white, although some can be found with color. Warren Martinek did many of his cards this way.

2004 Rittenhouse Art and Images of Xena: Warrior Princess has three different ArtiFEX insert sets, each focusing on a different artist. Actress, Renee O'Connor who played Gabrielle on the show, did the drawings for one such set. Rebekah Lynn cards are exclusive to North American packs while Douglas Shuler cards are only in packs slated for the international market. All of these sets have drawings on the cards. However, unlike the sketch cards, they're printed that way. Each is not a hand-drawn original.

The art focus continues in Portraits of a Warrior. All of the cards have art by Patricia Parker.

Six Xena Gallery cards have a slide embedded in them. Other inserts include Women of Xena, and Women and Warriors, which are numbered to 500 and printed on acetate.

Although autographs are available in packs, there are four elsewhere connected to the product. For starters, Alison Wall (Minya) was included with the set's binder. North American cases have an exclusive Renee O'Connor autograph while international cases have a Lucy Lawless autograph. Finally, a dual autograph with O'Connor and Ted Raimi came as a multi-case incentive.
