We love Fleer. We love X-Men. So it only makes sense that Upper Deck is bringing them back together again for the new 2018 Fleer Ultra X-Men set, that celebrates the vast, diverse history of X-Men comics while bringing and many of the 90’s trading card sets and brings some of these retro ideas, concepts, and designs from Fleer into the 21st Century.
Fleer Ultra X-Men has a large 150 card base set complete with cards that showcase the eponymous team, and cards that highlight all their villainous enemies, and the various characters that came to life through other X-family related books. You’ll also find these characters in 5 different Parallel sets, including, Silver Foil, Gold Foil numbered to 99, Artist Auto Red Foil numbered to 50, and the elusive Red Canvas Foil numbered only to one!
But that’s only the beginning of what you can find! 2018 Fleer Ultra X-Men will also contain new insert sets with tons of amazing original art! The Dead and Gone set will show off 10 prominent deaths of X-Men characters while the Greatest Battles depict 10 different fights between various X-Men and their foes. Some of the events in these cards go all the way back to the X-Men’s debut from 1963! And it doesn’t stop there. Have you ever wanted to see pictures of Deadpool on vacation? Well, we’ve got that! In Fleer Ultra Spider-Man, we watched Deadpool travel America. Now the Deadpool Around the World set, you’ll find pictures of the “Merc with a Mouth” visiting different famous locations all around the world!
Back by popular demand from last year’s Fleer Ultra Spider-Man are the Metal Blasters insert set. These cards will contain characters with a silver foil background on thick 80 point card stock. If you love those and want more then Precious Metal Gems are for you!
