MNS Cards will once again add to The Art of Robert Aragon collection at Comic-Con International. Last year, the company released promo cards and convention packs. At this year’s comic fest (July 9-12 at San Diego Convention Center), MNS Cards will introduce The Art of Robert Aragon binders. These will not be your average, everyday, run-of-the-mill binders. There will only be 280 binders produced and there will be three options to choose from. All feature the same artwork on the front and back as well as inside (yup, these albums even have art inside). Here’s the rundown of what’s inside (be sure to check with MNS Cards—Comic-Con booth 5616—for the exact contents as plans are subject to change):
Binder With Auto
The binder will include one random autograph card or sketch card from the trading card series. A total of 125 of these will be produced (these are not numbered). The suggested retail price for this is $45.00.
This version includes two random sketch cards, autograph cards, or a combination thereof (two cards total). Also included is a special sketch card drawn by Robert Aragon exclusively for this edition. The binders will be numbered and will come complete with an unopened box of the 2013 release (which includes a base set) and one of the 2014 Comic-Con convention packs. Also included will be chase sets of the nine-card “Faces of Fear,” nine-card Vincent Price set, and a limited six-card Leather set (new) to the images of the Wood Chase Set or autograph cards or a combination (mixed) from the trading card series, for a total of two cards. All that plus a signed and numbered letter from Robert Aragon himself. A total of 125 of these will be produced. The suggested retail price for this version is $130.00.
A Robert Aragon Leather Card (prototype) along with a Wood Card
The top-tier version includes three random sketch or autograph cards (or combination thereof), one “Very Exceptional” sketch cards drawn by Robert Aragon. The sketches are numbered P1 through P30. Similar to the above, this version includes an unopened box of the 2013 release, one 2014 Comic-Con convention pack, chase sets of the nine-card “Faces of Fear,” nine-card Vincent Price set, and a limited six-card Leather set (new) to the images of the Wood Chase Set. Also included “Classic Monster Art” nine-card chase set (from Comic-Con 2014), two random redemption cards or one random redemption card and one prop card from the series, one limited 8×10 Monster Artwork lithographed signed and numbered by Robert Aragon (which is numbered and keyed to the binder exclusively for this Premium Binder version). Similar to the Factory Binder version, all 30 of these are numbered and come with a signed and numbered letter from Robert Aragon. The suggested retail price for this version is $335.00.
MNS Cards is keeping the binder artwork guarded and will reveal it at Comic-Con. Be sure to stop by booth #5616 and check it out.
