|Cryptozoic Entertainment, leading creator of board games, trading cards, and collectibles, and Boat Rocker Brands, the merchandise and licensing arm of Boat Rocker Media, today announced the release of both Orphan Black Trading Cards Season 2 and Orphan Black Trading Cards Season 3 Premium Packs exclusively at San Diego Comic-Con. Cryptozoic will launch a pre-sale at 10 a.m. on July 6 of limited quantities of both the Season 2 and Season 3 trading card sets, allowing fans to purchase Premium Packs prior to San Diego Comic-Con and then pick them up at the event.
The premium trading card sets are based on the hit TV series Orphan Black, which airs on BBC AMERICA and Space, and feature a heavy dose of signatures from fan-favorite cast members. Tatiana Maslany, who won an Emmy® for Outstanding Lead Actress as the star of the show, has signed cards of seven clones she played in Season 2, and six clones she played in Season 3. In addition to Maslany, fans can find autographs from Ari Millen (who plays Mark Rollins, Styles Miller, Rudy, Parsons, and Seth), Evelyne Brochu (Delphine Cormier), and Jordan Gavaris (Felix Dawkins), among many others.
Each set contains different cast members’ autographs. In the Season 2 set there are five new autograph signers that did not appear in the previously released Orphan Black Trading Cards Season 1, and in the Season 3 set there are six new autograph signers that did not appear in either the Season 1 or Season 2 sets.
Each four-card Premium Pack includes three Autograph Cards and one Cryptomium Chase Card. Some of the Autograph Cards are special Autograph/Wardrobe Cards, that include both a cast member’s autograph and an actual piece of clothing worn on the series.
Every case contains 12 Premium Packs and is guaranteed to contain three Autograph Cards signed by Maslany. As these are special limited sets, there will only be 720 packs/60 cases available total for each set.
Season 2 of Orphan Black hits the ground running with Sarah in a desperate race to find her missing daughter Kira. Her scorched earth tactics spark a war with pro-clone Rachel, dividing and imperiling everyone she loves. With Alison’s carefully crafted suburban world spinning out of control, and the genetic illness affecting Cosima threatening them all, Sarah must negotiate a dangerous world of new enemies and shifting allegiances to get to the bottom of the experiment that made them who they are. In Season 3, Sarah faces off with a new breed of militaristic male clones in order to unearth the Leda sisters’ origins, and in the process, find the key that may ultimately save the sisters’ lives.
Orphan Black Trading Cards Season 2 and Orphan Black Trading Cards Season 3 will be available exclusively at San Diego Comic-Con, beginning July 20, for a suggested retail price of $54 per Premium Pack (including tax). Fans can take part in the limited pre-sale to ensure that their Orphan Black trading card Premium Packs will be waiting for them at the event.
