It is very likely that this year we will have a surprise in the form of a new Avengers card set from the company Unstoppable cards.

Company started the release of Avengers cards since 2011.

First set:
Very limited edition, sold only to dealers at the convention "The Entertainment Media Show" at Earls Court on 1 and 2 October 2011.

Then - "The Avengers 50" in 2012, and final on moment, "The Women of The Avengers", in 2014.

On 6 march of current year by company was released set "Yearset 2016" containing promotional cards for classic TV serials and sketches.

Advertising card "YS1" in set presented Steed and Mrs. Peel from b/w season. Very Happy





Let's hope that soon we will hear new excellent news. Wink

That's terrific news! Very Happy I've collected all the previous sets of trading cards. The 3 sets issued by Cornerstone in the 90's are my favourites, as they contained a lot of rare shots, but I'm eagerly anticipating these new sets. Rich.

I just wish they were larger or less grainy - some of the shots in those sets are very hard to come by and it would be amazing to really high quality versions of them.

I also rather like the many earlier releases because you could see the complete images on cards. Avengers sets of our century are regularly partly filled with overlays (not always successfully) and as a result, sometimes even if the image on the card is better than what is known to us, the overlays do not play in favor of the set.
Well, I would not mind the small neat overlays, which allow you to enjoy view of the image, actually we have many such sets, but for example, I do not like the approach of design for main Avengers cards like:

The Avengers 50

http://steedumbrella.ru/merchandise_cards_The_Avengers_50.html

Partly for:

http://steedumbrella.ru/merchandise_cards_Strictly_Ink_series2.html
http://steedumbrella.ru/merchandise_cards_Strictly_Ink_series3.html
http://steedumbrella.ru/merchandise_cards_The_New_Avengers.html

or many Argentine cards:

Yes, if cards were larger (set of postcards), less grainy, and good choice of images with minimal good located overlays on front, I would have bought several copies of one such set. Smile

Thanks for the links Denis. Smile I've never heard about the Argentine cards before. I'll have to look out for them on ebay. Hoping I can afford them! Rich.

Excellent information, thanks, Rich. Smile I regularly keep track of news on the company's website, but on moment there is still silence about the planned release. If this is really going to be in April or May, seems we not wait long before some public announcement, I think.

I did email Unstoppable a few weeks ago. Nothing definite yet, but they think June for the cards. I'll post more when I know. The books could be expensive. They have a similar book on Bowie's film The man who fell to Earth, which is signed by the author, and is anyone's for 250 Exclamation

Many thanks for info, Rich. Smile
A little surprise that they are thinking of set already in June. I assumed they would release a few more promo cards, and at best the set will appear in the fall. But it's great if the set of trading cards really coming over two months. Razz
Yes, special set with Avengers books seems will expensive, Rich. Will forced to wait for a part or a complete set of this on Ebay or other similar auctions. Wink

Just checked the Website...
The Trading Cards of "The Avengers" are now announced for a WINTER 2017 release...

The BOOKS about "The Avengers" look interesting... any ideas about their contents?

Alas, actually this announce for release of The Trading Avengers Cards was already posted on Unstoppable cards website long time ago. Sad

Earlier Rich wrote (from Apr 11, 2017):

June is already running out and the fact that the site still does not have any changes for this topic, says, I think, it already will not be until autumn, at the least. Confused

Hmm, can only guess the content for The BOOKS about "The Avengers". Maybe it will contain mostly autographs, or autographs and sketches, or autographs and some special cards, etc. The announcing for this box was posted too long ago, maybe they have not yet received all planned autographs or other content. Confused
