2018 Upper Deck Black Panther Trading Cards Head to Wakanda – See the Checklist


2018 Upper Deck Black Panther brings the Marvel film to trading cards with a mix of autographs, memorabilia and several other inserts – like “Vibranium” metal cards.

The base set has 90 cards and uses images from the movie. Each has a variety of parallels. They start with Silver Foil (1:2.5 packs) and Black Foil (/149). Indigo (/50) versions use special UV foil that changes color in sunlight and other UV light. There are also Acetate (1:16) and Gold Acetate (/10) parallels done on clear stock.

Every 2018 Upper Deck Black Panther hobby box has a pair of memorabilia cards. These all have material use in the film’s production. Swatch numbers range from two to four pieces per card.

Also randomly inserted are redemptions for over-sized cards with pieces of one of Black Panther’s suit including claws or teeth from his necklace.

Autographs come in a couple of different forms including single- and double-actor signature cards. The list of signers is limited but each is significant. Signers include Angela Bassett (Ramonda), Florence Kasumba (Ayo) and Martin Freeman (Everett K. Ross). All three have multiple single-signed cards as well as different combinations of dual autographs. Freeman also has a pair of autographed memorabilia cards.

The metal card trend continues to grow with a set of Vibranium inserts. Every box has either one of these, an autograph or a sketch card.

Rounding out 2018 Upper Deck Black Panther are several regular insert sets: Behind the Lens, Streets of Wakanda, Language of the People, Wakanda Tech and Wakanda Forever. These dive a little deeper into specific areas of the movie, covering things like characters, technology, locations and the world of Wakanda.
