JAMES BOND 007 SECOND SERIES SILVER CARD SET (Eclipse)

Release Date
1993


Set Configuration:
110 Base cards
10 Cards per pack
36 Packs per box
1 Collectors Album

Because the enormous success of the “First Series”, Eclipse immediately issues, the same year a second series of James Bond trading cards, the “James Bond 007 Second Series”. Obviously it’s a follow up to the previous card series. This second series contains pictures from “You Only Live Twice”, “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service”, “Diamonds Are Forever” & “Live And Let Die”, the first James Bond movie starring Sir Roger Moore as agent 007. The series is known among the collectors as the “Silver Card Set”, because all the cards are printed with a silver border.

"Second Series Counter Dislay Box"

The counter display box was finished with an orange background, again depicting a still of Sean Connery, this time as agent 007 in “Dr. No” and the famous 007 Gunlogo. A yellow text balloon on the box mentioned about collecting the six card Bond Girl subset. On the left and right wing, the box showed four pictures of the Bond Girl subset. This counter display box and it's predecessor are frequently popping up on eBay, sometimes full of packs and still wrapped as one. An empty box like this is always a nice addition to your James Bond memorabilia collection. Again the counter display box contained 36 packs, sadly there were only 10 cards per pack. Again the wrappers were beautiful designed, depicting some artwork of a James Bond silhouette seen through the eye of a gun barrel, only this time the title was finished with yellow lettering and a blue caption “Second Series”. The wrapper reverse mentioned the three ring binder and collector sheets. A custom imprinted vinyl 3-ring binder with 13 clear 9-pocket plastic sheets enough to hold the entire 110 card set. You just had to send $8,95 plus $2,00 p&h to Eclipse Enterprises to obtain your personal binder. Notice the 2,00$ price rise to purchase the binder. This time the wrapper displayed a blue binder compared to the red one for the first series. Honestly I don’t know if they issued a blue binder as I have never seen one before.

"Second Series Wrapper"

Just like the previous series, the cards were superbly finished, the only difference was the silver border instead of a gold one. On each card the picture on the front was accompanied by a short title. The complete description was printed on the reverse side. Sadly enough, the following major error appears on one of the cards; The front title on card N° 92 displays “Solitaire Kidnapped”, but the card shows us clearly a picture of the beach scène in the James Bond movie “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service”.

"Misprint on card N°.92"

For the second time in a row, this trading card set contained a chase set. The chase set is known as “The James Bond Girls” and displays six beautiful pin-up pictures of the girls. This little subset is highly in demand by the card collectors, price wise you can find the cards on eBay from about 20€ or cheaper. There is no need to pay more for this set. The subset is numbered from BG1 through BG6. One of the chase cards had a minor printing error, the text on the reverse of card BG5 mentioned “Mei Hama” instead of “Mie Hama”.

"Ursula Andress"
"Nadja Regin"
"Margaret Nolan"
"Karin Dor"
"Mie Hama"
"Jill St. John"

To protect and to store both James Bond trading card series (Gold & Silver), “Eclipse” manufactured a three ring binder, a so called collectors album. The blood red binder displaying a 007 Gunlogo printed in pink (SIC !). Underneath the pink Gunlogo the following text was printed in white lettering “Trading Cards”. The binder is a tough one to find, probably because of the low amount of binders they manufactured.
