Building My Avengers Team

*sits down to take a sip of Wednesday morning coffee. It's been quite the last few weeks in my household with many different things popping up, so having a nice cup of coffee before diving back into the hectic life is nice. That, and a new #CardsOverCoffee post*

I have mentioned it on here before, but I am a big Batman fan. He is pretty much the only superhero I really watch when it comes to TV and movies.

That doesn't mean if a non Batman movie or show is on TV, I wouldn't watch it. I am still a bit of a nerd and I really do enjoy the classic TV shows like The Incredible Hulk. Back before they made him all computer animated which I can't stand.

When it comes to cardboard, other than putting a bigger focus on Batman, I will pretty much collect anything that involves superheroes. Especially when they are combined with athletes on a card.

*takes a sip before continuing on*

Back in 1997, Skybox Metal Universe came out with a set that combined both NFL players and Marvel heroes in its Marvel Metal insert. These inserts fell 1:6 packs.

There are 20 cards on the checklist that feature some super and non superstar players with their inner Marvel comparison.

A lot of the better players on the checklist go for $20 plus to land so the odds of me trying to build this set would not be easy, though I would love to.

If any of you have any I don't have, I also have Kerry Collins and Terry Glenn, let me know. Always up for a good trade!

*takes a sip, starts to wonder what breakfast would be this morning*

I know if I had an inner Marvel character it would be the Incredible Hulk. Why? Well, if I don't have my coffee, I would probably turn green and start breaking things.

So in comments, your thoughts on these cards, your inner Marvel character and why are welcomed.

Have a good Wednesday.

*Coffee Card Blogger Out*


  1. Wow I didn't know about these. I am torn about this. On one hand I want to try to get all 20 cards from the set, on the other I don't. They are very nice if I had seen then back then in '97 I might have tried to collect them. Now I'm not too motiviated.

    1. Well...not sure I would want the competition for them haha!

  2. I like these a lot, but never considered trying for the set. Your title does inspire me a little for a future blog post though.

    1. Actually after making this blog title I could go many other ways with it as well. I look forward to seeing where you go with it.

  3. If there was a version of these with baseball players, I would probably be all over them.


Cards and coffee go together like PB&J, so don't you and leaving a comment below. Take a sip and let me know your thoughts!
