2020 Upper Deck Avengers: Endgame and Captain Marvel — Two Movies, One Trading Card Set

Share:

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is big and increasingly vast. 2020 Upper Deck Avengers Endgame and Captain Marvel trading cards put two of the biggest movies into one product. As with Upper Deck’s other Marvel movie sets, autographs are a major draw. However, there are other premium inserts and sketch cards that join them on the checklist.

Each nine-pack hobby box has either a signature, sketch card, shadow box insert, metal card, diamond card or printing plate. In short — one premium card or hit per box.

2020 Upper Deck Avengers: Endgame and Captain Marvel Overview

The base set clocks in at 90 cards. However this is split up into three levels of rarity. It centers on the final film in Iron Man’s, Captain America’s journey as part of the superhero team. I guess, one could put Thanos in that group as well.

Avengers Assemble and Avenge the Fallen are two of the product’s more common inserts. These combine to land approximately one per pack.

On the signature front, Legends Never Die Autographs feature actors. A list of signers hasn’t been released. In addition to regular versions, there are Inscriptions that come with short notes as well as signed one-of-one Printing Plates.

Among the Avengers-themed premium inserts are Shadow Box and One Shot Metal cards. Checklists for both of these include short prints as well as autographs.

Exquisite Collection Diamond Relics spotlight characters with cards manufactured diamonds embedded into the cards. Similar to the base set, there are three tiers when it comes to rarity. The Exquisite line, which represents Upper Deck’s highest of high-end brands, has been used sparingly with the Marvel license.

Randomly inserted Rewind Buybacks go back to earlier Upper Deck MCU sets. These are cards from the original sets that have a special stamp. Only one copy of each card has been given the Rewind treatment.

Captain Marvel

Although not quite as extensive overall in the product, Captain Marvel stands on its own as a set within a set. Each pack has one card from the film, including base cards and inserts.

The main set, as well as the Not What It Seems, Supreme Intelligence, and Higher, Faster, Stronger portions of the checklist have tough Silver Spectrum and Gold Spectrum parallels.

Additional autographs take on a Binary theme.

    Can someone find out why there aren’t any retail packs anymore? A lot of us don’t have card/hobby shops close by and can’t afford to buy full boxes or cases online.

      @Jim – Upper Deck does a lot of their entertainment releases through their e-Pack platform now.

    For Marvel Flair, the price of a box seems to be out of whack with the re-sell value of the contents. Is this true for most Marvel product? I have been out of the game for a while, is this how it is in general with box breaking?
    Maybe you get lucky with a gold parallel Lucky 8 or a sketch card that pays for all of part of the box, but the sketches vary wildly in quality in Marvel Flair. The autographed cards that are /30 go anywhere from $10 – $50 (people seem to like Peach Mamoko and for good reasons). Do people just pay a premium for the box for the thrill of the chase knowing that the re-sell value will be a fraction? For me, I’m just better off buying the cards I want on a secondary market rather than opening packs, which is a bummer because opening packs is a lot of fun. For example, if I want a specific autograph card, /30, I can buy it for the cost of a pack or two.
