2018 Rittenhouse Lost in Space Archives Series 1 Details


2018 Rittenhouse Lost in Space Archives Series 1 takes a colorful look back at the classic sci-fi series (apologies to those looking for some ’90s nostalgia from the movie with Matt LeBlanc and Lacey Chabert). Packaged as a premium factory set, each has a mix of new base cards, autographs, a sketch card and more.

Base Set

2018 Rittenhouse Lost in Space Archives Series 1 doesn’t have your typical base set. Traditional episodic and character-based sets have been done before. While these are rooted in episodes, each comes with original art done by Juan Ortiz.

Similar to what he and Rittenhouse did in the Star Trek Portfolio Prints line for both the Original Series and The Next Generation, the art is done in the form of a stylistic poster for each episode.

2018 Rittenhouse Lost in Space Archives Series 1 Base

This is the first of two planned sets in this style. That means a 43-card base set for Series 1. The follow-up covers the remaining 42 episodes.

2018 Rittenhouse Lost in Space Archives Series 1 Autographs

Each 2018 Rittenhouse Lost in Space Archives Series 1 set comes with three autographs. The first two are Inscribed Autographs from both Marta Kristen (Judy Robinson) and Bill Mumy (Will Robinson). Not only do these cards have a traditional signature, but there’s an added note or quote to go with them.

The final signature is a Character Art Autograph from either June Lockhart (Maureen Robinson) or Angela Cartwright (Penny Robinson). Those ordering a pair of sets get both of the Character Art Autographs. Otherwise, they’re distributed at random.

Another bonus for those buying two sets is a Triple Autograph signed by Mumy, Cartwright and Kristen.

Additional Cards

A set of eight Metal cards highlight the show’s characters. Each set comes with four. However, those ordering two factory sets get all eight.

Rounding out each factory is a sketch card.

2018 Rittenhouse Lost in Space Archives Series 1 has a print run of 200 sets.
