$83 for Mark Rolston's signature on the WY personnel card.

That's like a whole grocery bill.

@Xenomrph, don't grill me again over this.



I is not a good fan.

Yeah, I'm not keen on the chase distribution and after-market prices from Upper Deck. I mean, I've only gotten the 2016 Anthology set but it seems the distribution in these sets is as bad. It's annoying me. I can't find any base sets for sale on eBay either.  :-\

Yeah what the hell. They did an even worse job marketing these than the Alien Anthology set. I have never even heard of them and I was searching for the last bits of that set for awhile. I thought it was pretty comprehensive and filled the need pretty well so not sure why they felt they needed to make more sets for each movie. And like you said there is just not very much produced and the ratios are terrible and prices are extremely high as a result.   >:(

I managed to find some complete base sets of Aliens and a couple of Alien boxes are a local convention. I picked up the base set but not a box - kind of wish I'd also got a box - and unlike the Anthology set, this is old school and screen-cap based.

Nice find. Did you get any extra Aliens sets or just what you needed?

No, I didn't think to get any additional sets, sorry.

This is all the signatures, right?

Ah! No, autographs are considered chase cards.

You were right about the Alien 3 set Hicks:

And not only that, but there was also a Predator set put out by Upper Deck in 2018 as well:

At first I thought I wasn't going to mess with trying to collect these sets since I did all the Alien Anthology one plus looking at the prices/availability. But after looking around some it seemed like it might be somewhat doable so I caved. Though it will still be a decent amount of money depending on how much stuff I get. And who knows if they are doing an Alien Resurrection set in 2020  ???
