2015 Upper Deck Firefly : The Verse Trading Cards
20 packs per box
7 cards per pack
You can't always judge the quality of a series by how long it has been on the air. Firefly is a perfect example. The series, which lasted only 14 episodes, has since carved out a niche for itself among fans. Thanks to the growth of television on DVD and now streaming on sites like Netflix, the series (and the movie that grew out of it) continues to live on in a big way. Upper Deck Firefly: The Verse Trading Cards takes a different spin on the series with a release that uses new art to flesh out the world of the series.
The base set has nearly 180 cards, which is the largest to date for the franchise. Previously, Inkworks has released sets for the series and the movie Serenity. Characters like Captain Mal, Wash, Jayne, Kaylee and Zoe are featured, as well as other base cards that introduce ships and different types of weapons.
Base set parallels include foils, canvases and autographs. Collectors can also find printing plates.
2015 Upper Deck Firefly: The Verse also has a handful of premium inserts. Sketch cards come with original art done directly on the card. Replica Patch cards have fabricated embroidery pieces designed to resemble the patches found on the costumes in the series.
The product features many autographs. While the cards signed by the actors are the main attraction, the artists who worked on the set also have signatures in the set.
