I’m behind on box breaks so I’m going to do the new few a little more quickly than I normally would. I didn’t pull anything significant or I would have rushed it right to the site.I got a box of Justice League of America Archives when there was a big sale on them. Wow, these base cards are terrible. The front is an image from a Justice League comic. All that’s on the back is the cover from that issue and the issue’s number and date of publication. That’s it. Nothing about the story or a character or anything of that sort. Nowhere near as good as the Marvel sets that Rittenhouse has produced.
The insert sets are a lot of fun though. If only you got more of them in a box. I got three of the Super Friends insert cards including the pictured Apache Chief along with The Flash and Batman. I have two of the Other Earths cards: the pictures Owlman and Johnny Quick. You only get one JLA membership card and I got the Big Blue Boy Scout.
These days, non-sports sets are all about sketch cards. I pulled a Green Arrow sketch card drawn by Dezi Sienty. It’s an interesting sketch of a character that was brought to new heights of popularity when Kevin Smith took over writing his title for a year. Smith is extremely popular, but Sienty… not so much. That’s the chance you take when you buy these boxes just like any other boxes. I just wish that I had seen the base cards before buying this box because I may have passed on this set. It really seems like DC mailed it in on this one.
