At least the Rip cards could have actor autos that has to give the unripped cards some added value.

Don't forget that the rip cards still offer a chance at an auto though. What do people think the auto rate might be for rip cards? 1:5? (I have no basis pure guess)

Sigh, went from thinking this set would be loaded with value, to now thinking it will be a poor value, even at the lower price point. UD really needs to do 1 sketch or actor auto per box. The only thing maybe saving this set is that many of the main actors have been willing signers in past Thor sets, so as long as the auto list isn't bloated with too many smaller actors, it might be ok. I personally will be waiting to see the first breaks to make up my mind, but for now it's looking like wait until the boxes go on clearance.

If there is 1 rip card per box (and some boxes will have 2), then there is probably no way the odds for an actor autograph will be 1:5. Probably 1:10, or possibly 1:20 (1 per case has an actor auto?). Now, comic creator autos might fall 1:5, but those haven't really been very popular (except for Stan Lee of course). The other issue is that since these are mini cards, and most likely sticker autos, will there be room for anything other than the sticker on the front of the card, plus some text? Might not be any room for a picture, which would really ruin them.

I am guessing 20 rip cards, 20 wardrobe cards, 3-4 actor autos, and 4-5 sketch cards per 16 box case (plus one of the rip cards having another actor auto). Obviously, I hope there are more actor autos and sketch cards and fewer rip cards/wardrobe cards.

When has any upper deck set had 1 auto per box? I'd say that the above estimate is probably dead on.

Spider-Man Homecoming had 1 auto or sketch per box.

I took the gamble and went ahead and ordered an 8 box case.

I loved the film and haven't busted a case since Big Bang Theory in 2013 so this will be more about enjoyment for me. Having said that no one likes to lose money so hopefully there ends up being some decent value in this product even though with 2 memorabilia hit boxes that will be difficult.

Korg is voiced by the director Taika Waititi, so 3 good ones so far.

Hopefully more to follow!

Very good start for sure. Korg was hilarious.
Still hoping for one big new name. Damon, Sam Neil, Blanchett, Hopkins, Ruffalo or Goldblum

Cumberbatch and Hiddleston have signed in past so hopefully at least one of them included as well.

I'd love to see Idris Elba (Heimdall) - played one of the best roles in one of the best TV series ever made (Stringer Bell on The Wire).

Chances?

Damon - never
Neill - never
Hopkins - never
Goldblum - never
Elba - never
Ruffalo - never to slim
Cumberbatch - never to slim
Blanchett - slim to maybe
Asano - slim to maybe
Hiddleston - maybe
Stevenson - maybe
Levi - maybe to probable
Urban - probable (Karl tends to sign everything including the kitchen sink LOL)

Just my opinion - talking outta my arse

Awesome first 3, I'd love to hit any of those. Hopefully the actor auto's are at a favorable insert rate in boxes once the set is released

Could you picture a Jeff Goldblum autograph in this set. Even if it was SPd to 10 the chase for that would sell a ton of boxes.

If they get goldblum, they have to get Neil. Even though they have nothing to do with each other in movie, that would be one Of the best dual autos ever produced

Hopefully upper deck, uh, finds a way

I'm surprised there is no retail version of this? This movie is as popular as Guardians of the Galaxy and Spider-man Homecoming which both got retail sets.

Kind of odd that there is no info on this with the movie already in theaters.

Not really. This is the norm with UD. Usually don't have ALL info until week of release or the product is actually being opened. They have also released a couple marvel products after the movie came out. Not the best business strategy.

UD should be striking while the iron is like raging fire, not two months later when the iron is like smoldering fire.

So true. Didn't the Ant-man set come out around 6 months after the movie?
