The last time Emilia Clarke signed new autograph cards was 2013’s Game of Thrones Season 2 set. That changes in 2021 Rittenhouse Game of Thrones Iron Anniversary Series 1. Not only is her signature in the product, but so are inscriptions.
It’s one of the many elements included in the product that takes a comprehensive look at the characters of the popular HBO series.
Overall, hobby boxes have two autographs. The checklist for the high-end release also has several other inserts including memorabilia cards.
2021 Rittenhouse Game of Thrones Iron Anniversary Series 1 Checklist Overview
The base set has 99 cards. Fronts center on characters and have foil stamping to give them some flair. Built for binders and pages, card backs double as nine-card puzzles.
Parallels include Copper, Gold and Red (/50). One-of-one Printing Plates are also available. Iron versions, which are numbered to 99, are part of the 20-case incentive.
The base set is skip-numbered with several gaps throughout. These will be filled in with the Iron Anniversary Series 2 release.
Sticking with a lot of Rittenhouse’s recent products, there’s some variety in the types of autographs in Iron Anniversary Series 1.
Of the two guaranteed signatures per box, at least one has an inscription — a small note or quote from the actor. This opens things up to a lot of variations and different avenue to chase.
Besides Clarke, who played Daenerys Targaryen, other signers with inscriptions include Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark), Mark Addy (King Robert Baratheon), Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy), Jack Gleeson (King Joffrey), and Conan Stevens (The Mountain). You can download a full list of signers, individual inscriptions and print runs with this PDF.
There’s a new batch of Dual Autographs. Maisie Williams (Arya Stark), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), Sean Bean (Ned Stark) and Nathalie Emmanuel (Missandei) can be found on these.
Among the other signature types are Autographed Relics, Autographed Relic Quotes, and Autograph Quotes.
Costume Relic Quote cards are also available without autographs. Daenerys, Jon Snow and Tyrion Lannister are all featured among these.
Sketch cards have long been cornerstones in Rittenhouse’s Game of Thrones sets. Character and Scenic Sketch Cards are among the rarities available here.
Other inserts include Metal Expressions (18 cards), Artifex Metal (four cards, each /25), Gold Icons (five cards), and Battles and Blood (11 cards).
The Iron Throne is the backdrop for 3-D Dectation cards.
A couple of earlier sets get the Expansion treatment with new cards. Inflexions receives 25 additional cards as well as Silver (75) and Gold (/40) parallels. There’s also 27 new Laser Cut Expansion cards.

The man who passes the sentence should swing the sword. I don’t fight in tournaments. I am Eddard Stark, Lord of Winterfell and Hand of the King. The madman sees what he sees. Winter is coming. There’s great honor in serving the Night’s Watch. The winters are hard, but the Starks will endure. War was easier than daughters.
Autograph Relic Quote Card Checklist
2 cards, 23 total variations. Each variation has 100 copies or less.
I am Daenerys Stormborn of House Targaryen. I’m no ordinary woman. All men must die, but we are not men. I will take what is mine with fire and blood. The Iron Throne is mine and I will take it. I will do what queens do. I will rule. Fire cannot kill a dragon. I will answer injustice with justice.
QAC3 Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister
Never forget what you are. Everything’s better with some wine in the belly. Life is full of possibilities. A mind needs books like a sword needs a whetstone. I have a tender spot in my heart for cripples, bastards, and broken things. I am Tyrion, son of Tywin of Clan Lannister. We have our differences, Jaime and I. He’s braver. I’m better looking. You might find it difficult to rule over millions who want you dead.
I don’t like threats. I like to think I’m an intelligent man. Drinking and lust – no man can match me in these things. I chopped wood once. No, I watched my brother chopping wood. That’s what I do. I drink, and I know things. Lannisters always pay their debts. Let me give you some advice.

Dracarys! The next time you raise a hand to me will be the last time you have hands. Lannister, Targaryen, Baratheon, Stark, Tyrell, they’re all just spokes on a wheel. None of you are fit to lead the Dothraki. But I am. So I will. I’m not going to stop the wheel. I’m going to break the wheel! I was born to rule the Seven Kingdoms, and I will. A mother does not flee without her children. I am the Dragon’s Daughter. No one will take my dragons. The time to strike is now. Are you afraid of a little girl? Here I am! A dragon is not a slave. Harm no child. Valyrian is my mother tongue.
QC3 Jon Snow
I’m the watcher on the Wall. My father told me big men fall just as quick as little ones. Castle Black’s not falling tonight! The Long Night is coming, and the dead come with it. You all crowned me your king. I never wanted it. When enough people make false promises, words stop meaning anything. My watch has ended. We can’t defend the North if only half the population is fighting. I swore a vow to the Night’s Watch. I do know some things. You’ll be ruling over a graveyard if we don’t defeat the Night King. First lesson: Stick ’em with the pointy end. Love is the death of duty. If I fall, don’t bring me back. Sometimes there is no happy choice.
QC6 Tyrion Lannister
Never forget what you are. Everything’s better with some wine in the belly. Life is full of possibilities. A mind needs books like a sword needs a whetstone. I have a tender spot in my heart for cripples, bastards, and broken things. I am Tyrion, son of Tywin of Clan Lannister. We have our differences, Jaime and I. He’s braver. I’m better looking. You might find it difficult to rule over millions who want you dead. I don’t like threats. I like to think I’m an intelligent man. Drinking and lust – no man can match me in these things. I chopped wood once. No, I watched my brother chopping wood. That’s what I do. I drink, and I know things. Lannisters always pay their debts. Let me give you some advice.
