Maybe--I was VERY happy to add a Michael Keaton auto to my collection, even if it is a sticker.

The cost of this product is VERY unrealistic.. nearly $90 dealer cost.

At this price point there better be quite a few main cast members in this set.

Upper Deck really needs to go all out with this set

Danai Guerra and Forest Whitaker should be no Brainers as they sign for Topps regularly.
Andy Serkis signed for multiple companies
Martin Freeman has signed

Letitia Wright was so good in movie.
Same with Winston Duke
Daniel Kuluuya would be awesome after Get Out
Sterling K. Brown just because of his spectacular TV career
Ryan Coogler would be a great add as I love collecting director autographs

Angela Basset is a legend, so my hope is not high for her
Lupita has not signed for Star Wars so again, expectations low

That brings us to Chadwick and Michael B. Jordan.
This set MUST contain at least one. I know most would prob still consider the release a failure without Boseman however MBJ is hands down Marvel’s best villain they have put on screen so far. If they can get at least one, this set will do very well, if they can get both, I’ll be opening 20+ cases

Raise the price if you need to UD. Make this a higher end set. Get the cast that is needed. Black Panther is the future of the marvel movie universe and it deserves the highest quality release.

The costume relics (even if not screen worn) are going to be awesome. The costume designer for this movie deserves an Oscar nomination at a minimum

Has upper deck said why the release dates of their sets are 2-3 months after the film premier? At this rate, the infinity war set won't be out until July or August

agree with all of this.

Boseman & Jordan I'm going all in. 1 of them interested. Neither, I'll by a Letitia Wright single and call it a day.

There's no chance these autos are on card, right?

I would say highly unlikely. I'm thinking back to all the Marvel MCU UD sets, and I can't think of any actor autos that were on card.

I want a MBJ auto just to make a Fahrenheit 451 custom. :-)

Yeah wow that is a terrible auto checklist, I may for some relics in the secondary market but the big draw is Freeman and even then you can get him in the Hobbit sets. This set will be quickly discounted for anyone that gets stuck with it.

Bassett and Freeman are great but WTF upper deck. THREE f’ing signers?

This is one of the biggest movies of all time and this is the set you give us? I have always tried to make light of your products and open a TON of epack but I might be through with you. Time for someone who actually cares about the license to take over

and you know they'll all be sticker autos. They could at least have gotten Serkis to sign.

even if they got Jordan and Serkis to sign would be acceptable but just bleh and yes stickers. I dont mind stickers if they blend but sometimes they just dont work.

Three signers is just ridiculous. Why even bother.

Way to phone it in Upper Deck...........
I was already expecting to be underwhelmed and you somehow still managed to disappoint

Thanks though for making my decision easy on how I was going to split my money between Black Panther and Legends of Tomorrow.....

So I guess a case break down will be three sketches, three metal cards, four autos, guess 3 singles and one dual..prolly one printing plate. leaves one extra among those. I’m guessing average be two florence, and one freeman or basset, and a dual. The three or 4 boxes with metal cards as hits will be the roughest. I don’t see these selling for more than 10-20 each unless they really look nice.


These will be ok buys in time when can get boxes for around 80-90. But at 115 or more, it’s a hard sell for me.

Here’s hoping the sketch quality is least decent.

Upperdeck is just the worst. Only 3 different signers for a set based on a film is simply embarrassing. At what point do they scrap making a set of cards based on a movie because they can’t get people to sign? 2 or less is the bar now....

Good thing I only got a 2 spots in a break for a friend as a gift. Absolutely no point in buying boxes.

Hopefully nobody out there pre ordered any of this. These sets have the potential to be amazing and I pray the what appears to be lack of effort in this set based on that list is a sign that UD are ready to pass over the licence

I just don’t get why at least no Serkis. He’s signed for both lord of the ring stuff and Star Wars. I don’t think we be complaining as much with at least 4 signers. They been better off saving these autos for maybe like for the upcoming avengers infinity set .

This really doesn’t bode well at all for any up coming movie releases. Only thing that would help this release if the relics were movie used and just not “part of the production”. But we know that’s not happening.

Maybe cause of how big the movie is, maybe the sets and parallels will actually sell. But we all know a lot of the sellers will panic and way under price stuff.

I see maybe 6-7 Boxes having ok value at current release price.Maybe the print run on this is small. That would help some.

Remember when Upper Deck said they hired someone that is amazing at getting actors to sign and to expect great things... Pepperidge Farm remembers.

Also another set of worthless costume cards. None are very SP. No collectability or value. Unless you pull a Freeman or a nice sketch it looks like another Upper Deck product that is $100+ a box but only has $10 hits inside. That is if they even give you all the hits haha.
