Gamora looks more Photoshopped into that photo than Rocket and Groot.

Anyone know what this card would be from?





Is the retail of this set already hitting?

I'm looking at a Facebook post about these cards right now. It would appear Wal-Mart has retail packs out. 4 card pack with "Only at Wal-Mart" printed on it.

Wow... off to Walmart! They got the retail for the first set early too, but that was only like 6 weeks early. This is 2 months+ before the 5/05/17 movie release date.

This was the pic that was posted:



The title of the post was "Hanes underwear Guardians II giveaway at Walmart". I don't know what that means to be honest.

This set will be cool! The previous retail version's only hit was the elusive X/10 pink parallels. My guess (based on the last set) is that the retail base will also be a different variation than the hobby base. Need to convince my gf to pick these up!

It's in a closed group (Marvel Trading Cards Collectors).

Looks like long odds on hitting anything besides a gold or blue foil. I would try out some of these packs if my local WalMart stores have them. Unlikely. I'll be in SoCal later this week though so maybe I'll find some on my trip. Do they have WalMart there?

Anyone have any luck finding these in the wild? Or is it possible the card that was listed on eBay was from a rare store that broke street date? Would be interested in Walmart hopping tomorrow morning if they are to be had, but the fact that no more have hit eBay in the last week leads me to believe they might not be prevalent yet.

Here's another scan of the card I bought off of eBay. The card background is actually silver (as better shown in the image above). I am just posting this image because it better highlights the background pattern vs. the previous image I posted.

Was in walmart about an hour ago and they had a huge display of Hanes underwear packages that include a pack of cards inside. You can see the card pack through the package and they say that autos and relics can be found. I meant to check the card section on the way out but forgot. I may go back tomorrow.

Thanks for the heads-up. I wonder if this Hanes set will end up being separate from the inevitable retail release? I can't see myself buying underwear to get packs of cards lol, but if retail is also out there I will make a few stops.

The Hanes Jumbo packs sure seem like an odd choice for a pack in. I mean how many 10 packs of whities does one person need? Food items are so much better for these promotions, I could go through 10 boxes of Star Crunches (for the Rancho Obi-Wan cards) in a week while 10 packs of underwear would probably last the remainder of my life lol.

I normally run into the vendor who stocks the cards when Im doing my own merchandising in the walmarts so I'll see if they can shed some light on when to really be looking for these.

If they are in Women's hanes underwear, there are going to be some pack searchers looking really creepy.
