My dehoarding continues, with this latest eBay offer:
Browncoats rejoiced when fan-favorite collectible card company Inkworks got the license to make Serenity cards and they sold very well, but nothing sold out faster than the binder for them.
Commemorating Joss Whedon’s movie “Serenity,” the big-screen continuation of his popular-but-canceled show “Firefly,” Inkworks produced a gorgeous set of 72 cards depicting scenes (and behind-the-scenes) from the movie. The binder is sturdy, 11 1/2″ by 10″ by 1 3/4″ and contains the basic 72-card set, plus the following promo cards:
SP-SD 2005 (Comics Con exclusive)
SP-UK (from a British collecting magazine, I think)
DST-1 (advertising the action figures)
DS S1, DS S2, DS S3, DS S4, DS S5 (came with the action figures)
This is as complete a set of the promo cards as I’ve seen, and some of them are very hard to find.
The binder is in excellent condition, having sat snugly on my shelf since I bought it. The Serenity movie poster is on the front, and on the back is the cast and our girl Serenity flying in the black (or, rather, the blue). Slight wear on the top and bottom of the spine but it could easily be new out of the box, and it’s even signed on the inside back cover by Inkworks president Allan Caplan. I’ll even toss in the promo sheet advertising the card set, and the display box (folded) the cards came in. The cards are all in excellent condition (pics show some spots but they’re from my crappy scanner).
