Well, good very early morning to everyone! Today I am fortunate to be breaking open the latest release from Cryptozoic four days early! That's right! This product hasn't even been released yet as it comes out on August 5th.
*takes a sip, well two, okay three, then continues on his card banter*
Outlander Season 4 trading cards are here, well almost! This is one of the most highly anticipated releases this year by Cryptozoic of the very popular show time traveling Starz show. They have produced cards for Seasons 1-3 as well.
The show keeps you on the edge of your seat as you follow the story of Claire and Jamie and their time traveling troubles and run ins. I bet this box of cards will keep me on the edge of my seat as well. As with any Cryptozoic release, there are always surprises to find.
*finishes up cup number one, see I told you it's going to be a multiple cup kind of day, pours cup two and can't wait to open this up*
Let's get to ripping this.
One thing that always grabs my attention about Cryptozoic products is their high gloss base cards with episodic images of a shows season.
There are 72 cards in the base set and one box usually gives you the whole set. I haven't seen too many times where this wasn't the case. This box provided me with the full set.
It seems Cryptozoic continues to build upon more parallels for their products recently.
Here are the parallels that you can find for the base set, Canvas Stock, Gold Foil, Red Foil /50, and Printing Plates 1/1.
I didn't find any numbered red parallels in this break.
*takes his first shot of the second cup, then moves onto chase/insert cards*
The chase/insert sets in Outlander also have parallels.
You can find the following, Canvas Stock, Gold Foil, Red Foil /50, and Printing Plates 1/1.
*takes another sip or two. Okay, I will admit, it's always three or more. Then continues on to rest of this break*
Okay, we have seen the base, the parallels and the chase inserts. Now we are moving onto the bonus pack of the box. The Playing Cards.
*finishes up cup number two, didn't realize how hot the next cup was going to be or how hot this box was going to turn out*
Now we have reached the hits stage. On average, as I said, there will be one wardrobe and one autograph but this box was pretty hot as it doubled the average amount of hits.
This is the overall autograph checklist of 18 signers
- AK Ajuawak Kapashesit as Raven of Keowee
- BC Braeden Clarke as Kaheroton
- CO Caitlin O’Ryan as Lizzie Wemyss
- CM Colin McFarlane as Ulysses
- FC James Barriscale as Farquard Campbell
- FE Flint Eagle as Tskili Yona
- GS Grant Stott as Captain Freeman
- KR Kyle Rees as John Quincy Myers
- LW Lee Boardman as Lieutenant Wolff
- MG Melanie Gray as Margaret Tryon
- NS Natalie Simpson as Phaedre
- SH Simon Harrison as George Washington
- SM Sera-Lys McArthur as Johiehon
- TC Tantoo Cardinal as Adawehi
- TD Tim Downie as Governor Tryon
- TJ Tom Jackson as Tehwahsehkwe
- UR Urs Rechn as Gerhard Mueller
- YT Yan Tual as Father Alexandre
And out of the blue came this in the final few packs....
*burned my tongue on the coffee and my hands from this hot box!*
That was a lot of fun and worth waking up early for. As with most breaks I have done of Cryptozoic products, there are always surprises such as extra hits, parallels you didn't know about, etc. They always put out a great product and don't normally leave you disappointed.
So if you're a fan of Outlander, this one is for you!
Also if you are interested in the overall checklist, you can find that HERE.
