Cardnado! Sharknado Autograph Card Primer – Beckett Pricing Insider
In the summer of 2013, the original Sharknado was released and it quickly became a pop culture phenomenon. So much so that it morphed into a franchise that has spawned a sequel every year since.
But as they say about all good things.
This past Sunday on the SyFy, we saw the end of an era. The Sharknado series has finally come to an end (we think). And what a magnificent run it was.
But, nothing in the wonderful world of movies really ends, right? These films will play for years thanks to repeat airings and on-demand streaming. The Sharknado faithful will continue to collect memorabilia.
And when it comes to trading cards, the action is just beginning.
RRParks is releasing the first of three series devoted to the Sharknado films this September. Powered by a Kickstarter campaign that met its goal within the first 24 hours, the product covers the first two films and offers authentic film-used prop cards as well as sketch cards.
Two promo cards have already hit the market, one from San Diego Comic-Con (P1) and another inserted in the latest issue of Non-Sport Update Magazine (P3).
While there are no autographs to be had in this first series of cards, there is no shortage of signed cards for the stars of Sharknado throughout the years.
I’ve done a bit of digging and found a lot of goodies out there for the Sharknado aficionado who may wish to have the autographs of their favorite star or cameo appearance.
