2021 Upper Deck James Bond Villains and Henchmen trading cards show that good heroes need excellent bad guys. Over the course of more than two dozen films, 007 has faced his share of nasty folks, homicidal maniacs, soft-spoken gents with sharp accessories and people simply looking to take over the world. The product highlights the many battles the world’s most famous spy has fought over the years and all the involved parties.
Like Upper Deck’s first set of James Bond trading cards, there are a variety of cards on the checklist. Hobby boxes include two traditional hits — an autograph and a memorabilia card. Collectors can also expect to find a pair of acetate inserts.
2021 Upper Deck James Bond Villains and Henchmen Checklist Overview
The checklist starts with a 100-card base set. Spanning from Dr. No through to Spectre, it covers a lot of ground — and a lot of antagonists.
Parallels come in a couple of levels. Acetate have three levels of rarity. Obsidian versions are extremely scarce, landing 1:480 hobby packs.
Like 2019 Upper Deck James Bond Collection, Star Signatures come with on-card autographs instead of stickers. More than 40 signers are on the checklist. Among them is Daniel Craig who is signing for Upper Deck for the first time.
More ink can be found in Autographs (1:120 packs), which is heavy on bigger names and key characters. These are essentially an adaptation of the base set.
All memorabilia cards have swatches taken from the production Spectre. These come in a variety of combinations including many with multiple pieces of fabric.
Regular insert themes include Allies and Colleagues, Master Plan, and The Upper Hand. These combine to fall approximately one per pack.
There are also Acetate Movie Posters and Crystal Clear Plexiglass inserts that have SP and SSP levels in addition to the commons.
