Rittenhouse Archives will be releasing Spider-Man The Original Animated Series Lenticular Motion Trading Cards set (wow, that is a mouth full) on Wednesday. The set consists of 9 lenticular cards based on the original 1967 Spider-Man animated cartoon and two autograph cards from Paul Soles, the actor who voiced Peter Parker/Spider-Man, limited to #/250 for each card.
Each set runs $100 and you get all 9 lenticular cards plus one of the two autographs, if you buy two sets from Rittenhouse you will be guaranteed to get both autographs.
I grew up watching this cartoon during the 1970s (in reruns) so I would love to pick up a set, Rittenhouse has done very well with entertainment cards and I am sure this will be a nice set too, but no way would I drop this kind of money here.
Here is the problem, besides the two autograph cards Rittenhouse has not released any information or preview images of what the 9-card checklist looks like. It is extremely difficult to justify purchasing a $100 set without seeing any of the cards let alone a set that consist of only 9 cards and an autograph. Sadly I expect to see sets, minus the autographs, showing up for $10-15 on eBay within days of the release and that is when I will probably purchase a set.
