The Uncanny X-Men Trading Cards: The Complete Series Hardcover Marked Down To $13.51 On Amazon


Jay Cochran - January 17, 2023
In 1992, Marvel Entertainment commissioned Jim Lee, the young superstar penciller behind X-Men (1991) no. 1, the bestselling single-issue comic book of all time, to create all of the art for a new set of 105 trading cards—a set that would go on to become one of the most celebrated in Marvel history and the gold standard for non-sports trading-card artwork and design. Lee was the first artist to create all of the original artwork for a Marvel card set; his dynamic character portraits, battle scenes, team shots, and innovative nine-card Danger Room puzzle cards helped fuel both the ’90s boom of comic-book trading cards and the general public’s mania for all things X-Men. Fans of the chart-topping comics could turn to the cards for further insight into their favorite characters, as Marvel writers and editors included bios, stats, and trivia for each hero and villain.

The Uncanny X-Men Trading Cards: The Complete Series collects, for the first time, the front and back of each collectible card in the set—including Wolverine, Storm, Cyclops, Magneto, and Deadpool—along with select scans of Lee’s original and digitally remastered art. It also includes interviews, conducted by writer and set editor Bob Budiansky, with the Marvel staff who helped assemble, design, and create these iconic trading cards.

This is currently marked down on Amazon for $13.51.

I like Jim Lee's art a lot, and thought the drawing he did on these cards was solid. I'd buy this book just to have them all to refer to.

I really wish they'd do some complete collection books for Marvel Masterpieces mainly when Greg & Tim Hildebrant were doing them, those are some of my favourite card sets ever, even though I own em, I'd buy a whole book just to stare at that amazing art.

Huge agree. Though I prefer the 1st series Jusko stuff to the Hildebrandts, but I'd take whatever Masterpiece artbooks they'd want to put out.

I still have all my original cards locked up in storage somewhere, but this would be cool to have to be able to look over them again without having to make a grand journey to find them. Might have to pick this one up.

I'm very excited by this. I am a huge fan of this card set and still have it in my collection. Jim Lee is by far one of the best X-men artists ( after Byrne and Cockrum of course) and did some great things for the X-Men in the short time he was on the book.

Great idea, those cards were amazing and seeing them on bigger resolution is even better, hopefully it also has enough of raw material and sketches.

Sounds like an amazing book. Didn't know but not surprisedBob Budiansky had a hand in writing the cards

This is really really cool, I'd buy this if I didn't already have all of these cards physically, they need to do this for more card sets in the future.

Oh man! I'm not an X-fan but I do hope this does well so that maybe they will branch into other characters/teams. The trading cards from the 90s were my introduction to comics when a friend showed me a Venom card. I'd be all over something like this for Spidey/Street characters and Avengers.
