  2010 Non-Sport Card Lineup Looks Amazing!
Wow! 2009 will be going out with a bang as Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Update set and Stargate Heroes set arrive in the coming weeks. But the lineup of non-sport trading card sets coming in early 2010 just keeps getting better and better.

A few weeks ago, when Rittenhouse announced plans to release a Lost: Seasons 1 Thru 5, it seemed to really catch collectors' attention. We are seeing a huge interest in this set already and it isn't scheduled to arrive until January 27th.

Yesterday, we discussed Rittenhouse's Women of Star Trek set that is scheduled to arrive on February 24th. With 3 autograph cards and 2 relic cards in every box, we aren't surprised that we've seen a lot of interest in this set after only one day. The list of autograph signers and characters who will have relic cards in the set is strong, and there are many more that haven't been announced yet.

We received one more detail about that set this morning. Customers pre-ordering 15 cases will receive a free Women of Star Trek Archive box!

In addition to those huge Rittenhouse releases, they've announced yet another! The Marvel 70th Anniversary trading card set is slated for a March 31st release. We've just added this one to our web site this morning. Every box will include 1 hand-drawn, color sketch card. The list of artists contributing to the set is impressive: Allison Sohn, Anthony Tan, Charles Hall, Andy Price, Chris Bradberry, John Haun, Kevin West, Axebone, Monte Moore, Rhiannon Owens, Sanna Umemoto, Sonny Strait, and more!

Each Marvel 70th Anniversary case will include one of three sequentially numbered Marvel Art cards. Customers pre-ording 6 cases will receive an exclusive color sketch card by Warren Martineck. A 9-case pre-order will yield customers a free Bob Layton color sketch card. An 18-case pre-order will be accompanied by a free Archive box that includes 30 random sketch cards!

So it's safe to say that Rittenhouse is looking at an exciting start to the new year with these three sets on the horizon. But you might ask, "Are there any other companies making non-sport cards in 2010?" Well, here's a hint at a set from Topps that we hope to have more information on in the coming days. We think there might be one or two customers interested in it (click the image for a better view)....
