Based on Upper Deck’s unique relationship with Marvel, the trading card giant was able to secure some extremely cool (and ultra limited) movie props directly from the set of THOR, which has its theatrical release date scheduled for May 6, 2011. As you might suspect, Upper Deck has an exclusive, 100-card set of THOR trading cards in the works that is slated to launch on March 15, well in advance of the movie. By the way, Upper Deck has also secured a pair of movie-worn pants from actress Natalie Portman as well as movie-worn shirts and a cape from leading man Chris Hemsworth, pieces of which will be utilized on movie-worn memorabilia cards.
In the meantime, check out some of the unique THOR movie set collectibles below: his stunt hammer and a pair of Loki knives. Now the question is: How should Upper Deck utilize these sought-after gems? Should we cut them up and put them on movie-used memorabilia cards inserted within the set, or should we use them as exchange cards where some very lucky collectors might wind up walking away with either THOR’s stunt hammer in its entirety or a set of these stunt Loki knives?
Feel free to give us your opinion. It might just work out to your advantage.
