By Miranda Charsky

It has been a while since we’ve had an announcement for trading cards, but we’ve got so much great information to talk about that I hope you will forgive me! 

To start off, The Big Bang Theory Season 5 Trading Cards released on 11/25/2013. There are some really fun guest star Autographs in this set, so I really hope collectors are having a good time opening packs!

We had our production meeting for the Revenge Season 1 Trading Cards, and everything is on track for the pack-out. The release date for this set is finalized for 12/18/2013. Check out the product page for all the great details, like information on chase sets and Wardrobe cards!

Here is a look at the finalized Autograph list (all cards are in-house, all signers are confirmed):

There have also been a lot of new agreements for a lot of sets further in the future, like Supernatural, Arrow, Psych Seasons 5 & 6, and I’ll give everyone an update on those in the new year.

Some have noticed that the current Autograph list for Sons of Anarchy Trading Cards Seasons 1 - 3 is really taking off, and we have been so lucky to get such an overwhelmingly positive response from the great actors working on the show. We recently announced that Ron Perlman (Clay Morrow) and Katey Sagal (Gemma Teller Morrow) will be signing for all three sets (Seasons 1 – 3, Seasons 4 & 5, and Seasons 6 & 7).

On the tail of that great news, we are really excited to let fans know that Charlie Hunnam has also signed his agreement to participate! This is fantastic news (he will also sign for all three Sons of Anarchy sets as well as Pacific Rim), but it does mean that we have had to adjust the list of signers to create a good variety of signatures for each set. Below is the current breakdown of signers for the three Sons of Anarchy Trading Card sets. (More signers may be announced for Set 1, and more will be announced for Sets 2 and 3.)

There have been a lot of really great developments recently, and I hope everyone continues to check back to the product pages and the Cryptozoic Facebook page for more information as it is announced.

We have made progress with The Walking Dead Season 3 and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey sketch card reviews this week, so we should have lots of really amazing cards to share with everyone in a few weeks. Be sure to keep an eye out for updates on the product pages and Cryptozoic blog!
