2016 Rittenhouse Game of Thrones Season 5 Trading Cards Checklist and Details
Game of Thrones can be counted on for several things: epic plotlines, sudden death, dragons and sets of seasonal trading cards recapping the episodes that were. 2016 Rittenhouse Game of Thrones Season 5 trading cards continue with the tradition, once again promising two autographs and a handful of inserts in every box.
A total of 100 cards make up the 2016 Rittenhouse Game of Thrones Season 5 base set. Like all four of the show’s earlier sets, the biggest focus is on the characters. If you’re familiar with the show, you understand why. There is a lot to keep up with. People come, go and come back again. Sometimes, death doesn’t even stop them from making an impact.
The remaining 40 cards cover the events of the fourth season. If Game of Thrones were a show with 20-plus episodes per season, that’d probably be light as far as giving more than the very basics. But the fifth season only has ten episodes. All things considered equal, that’s four cards each.
The 2016 Rittenhouse Game of Thrones Season 5 base set is complimented by two parallels. The first is inserted 1:3 packs. Gold cards fall one per box.
Two autographs per box has been consistent for the show from the beginning. And while the checklist is once again deep in signers, some key names are missing. Headlining the set this time around are Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark), Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), Natalie Dormer (Margaery Tyrell) and Carise van Houten (Melisandre).
Emilia Clarke is probably the biggest name not on the checklist. She has not signed since the Season 2 set.
Pack-inserted autographs comes in three different designs, continuing themes started in earlier releases. They are Blue, Full-Bleed and Bordered.
Two of the most common basic inserts in 2016 Rittenhouse Game of Thrones Season 5 are continuations from past themes: Quotable (1:12) and Relationships (1:24). Both of these have nine cards.
A new set titled Beautiful Death Art cards are included at a rate of one per box. Beautiful Death is the biggest of the basic insert sets with 20 cards. Each also has a Gold parallel (1:144).
Reflections is another new insert. The 16-card set is also tough to find, surfacing 1:96 packs.
Relic cards are randomly inserted. As are Sketch cards, which have, in the past, fetched some big numbers on the secondary market despite not having any character artwork.
Incentive cards come in several forms for 2016 Rittenhouse Game of Thrones Season 5. They start with the case toppers. Each has a Die-Cut Shield card of either House Baratheon or House Bolton.
Those order six cases get a Dual Autograph with signatures from Sophie Turner and Aidan Gillen (Littlefinger). This is the first dual-signed card in the line’s history.
The nine-case incentive is a Peter Dinklage Autographed Relic, another Game of Thrones first.
An Archive Box is available to those taking 18 12-box cases. Each has an exclusive full-bleed Peter Dinklage autograph and all four of the Printing Plates used to make one of the base cards.
