March 2011, Rittenhouse Archives announces the release of a brand new James Bond trading card set. The "James Bond Mission Logs" trading cards. The release date was set for the 18th May and this time there were no delays. For the second time Rittenhouse Archives didn't release a sell sheet, instead of a sell sheet they published a downloadable ad-sheet in the well-known pdf format on the internet, or should we call this an eco sell sheet. In April the website was updated with a partly check list, the complete check list followed in the beginning of May, now including all the autograph cards. What can we expect from this new trading card set, well to begin a 66 card base set featuring the action and excitement of all 22 classic James Bond films, from "Dr. No" to "Quantum of Solace". Each movie has 3 cards with many never-before published photos! From "Dr. No" thru "Moonraker" and for "The Living Daylights" they used black and white pictures, all the other movies are displayed in full colour. But who cares about the basic set? The major problem is to compile the bonus sets, the autographed and relic cards. As usual, Rittenhouse Archives guarantees the collectors two autograph cards and one relic card per box! Again there are six bonus or chase sets to collect or should I say to expand your previous card sets, including one new bonus set titled "Bond...James Bond" containing 11 cards.

"The Promotion Cards"
ISP1 P1 P2 P3 P4

For the first time since they start printing James Bond trading cards, Rittenhouse issued no less than five promo cards. Three of those promo cards popped up very early on eBay. Some promotion cards are quiet rare these days, issued in small quantities and only distributed with a magazine or given away at conventions makes it for the collector at the other side of the world difficult to obtain some of these cards. The first promotion card is numbered as ISP1 what stands for "2011 Industry Summit Promo" and shows a promotion picture of Pierce Brosnan for "GoldenEye". The general distribution promo card P1 shows an action picture of Daniel Craig in "Quantum Of Solace". Issued with the Non Sports Update Magazine is the promo card P2 showing an action picture of Pierce Brosnan in "GoldenEye". As always there is a special promo card included with the binder, the card P3 picturing Jane Seymour and Roger Moore in a dangerous sequence of "Live And Let Die", and the last card issued for the Philly Non-Sport Show - Spring 2011 showing Sean Connery in "Diamonds Are Forever". I would say, go get all five of them Mr. Bond!


"James Bond Mission Logs Add Sheet"

Shown above is the single sided downloadable add sheet, sadly there is no detailed information about the coming card set or any kind of a checklist. Today and for the future, everybody is believed to have internet access. So why should they distribute an expensive sell sheet if one can find all the information that you need on the internet. The cards are distributed in cases containing 12 boxes, each box has 24 packs holding five cards. A small calculation gives a total of 120 cards per box including two autographed and one relic card.

The "James Bond Mission Logs" Case

The first bonus or chase set is brand new and titled "Bond...James Bond". Eleven cards randomly inserted in 1/12 packs or two per box. Each card depicts a black and white still of James Bond. Starting with Sean Connery in "Dr. No" until Roger Moore in "Moonraker". I expect that the next trading card set will have an update for this lovely chase set.

The second chase set are the "Bond Villains", each card depicts a black and white still of a villain, from Dr. No to Dominic Greene in "Quantum of Solace". The cards are randomly inserted in 1/12 packs, and numbered from F71 to F81 for a total of eleven new chase cards. Rittenhouse Archives started this chase set in 2004 with the release of "The Quotable James Bond" trading card set. Since then an expansion to update your card collection was available with the release of each new trading card set. Let's have a look on how to retrieve these cards in your collection.

In 2006, Rittenhouse introduced a chase set named the "Bond Allies". To expand your collection with eleven new "Bond Allies", Rittenhouse created this third chase set, again randomly inserted in 1/12 packs and numbered from BA35 to BA45. Very strange here is that the previous expansion ended with card BA36 "M in Dr. No". Now the same card is issued again carrying the number BA35. The same applies for card BA39 "Felix Leiter in Diamonds Are Forever" which was previous released as BA35. A mistake or a collectors item??? And again with card BA34 in the "James Bond Archives" trading card series. The list below gives you an indication on where to retrieve the other "Bond Allies".

Bond Girls Are Forever! The fourth chase set is an update to already existing nine “Femme Fatales” previous released as a chase set with "The Women Of James Bond In Motion". The new “Femme Fatales” cards are numbered from F10 thru F18 and randomly inserted in 1/12 packs. To make the cards sparkle forever, they were printed on a shiny metal foil base. One problem occurs here, the reverse is printed opposite compared to the first nine Femme Fatales cards. Go save the girls Mr. Bond!

Every James Bond collector would like to own a piece of the action. Prop or relic cards are the easiest way to own a little piece of an original film used prop. The new relic cards are an expansion to the ones previous released with the "James Bond Heroes and Villains" trading cards. The numbering starts from JBR14 thru JBR26. The card JBR6 is issued as a 9-case incentive case topper, but card JBR11 is still missing, perhaps this card will see the light with the next card set. The following is a list of all the new relic cards. They are all sequentially numbered, JBR21 is the most difficult one with a production of only 200 cards. That's only one card for every 35 boxes, if you're lucky.

  • JBR14 -Honda ATV Seat Leather from "Diamond Are Forever" (400).
  • JBR15 -Tosca Opera Program from "Quantum of Solace" (333).
  • JBR16 -James Bond's Parachute Pack from "The Living Daylights" 700).
  • JBR17 -Tosca Gift Bag from "Quantum of Solace" (250).
  • JBR18 -Karl Stromberg's Submarine Crew Uniform from "The Spy Who Loved Me" (800).
  • JBR19 -Renard's Nuclear Bunker Suit from "The World Is Not Enough" (800).
  • JBR20 -Drax Industries Jumpsuit from "Moonraker" (900).
  • JBR21 -James Bond's Motorcycle Gloves from "GoldenEye" (200).
  • JBR22 -James Bond's Tactical Vest from "Tomorrow Never Dies" (600).
  • JBR23 -Renard's Submarine Shirt from "The World Is Not Enough" (775).
  • JBR24 -James Bond's Ski Suit from "The World Is Not Enough" (900).

The last chase cards are the personally signed autographed cards, to expand the already huge collection we have the three card styles for a total of 37 cards. The first series of cards are nineteen autographed cards in the 40th Anniversary style. The numbering of these cards jumps from top to bottom, leaving many gaps in between. The second series of cards are two autographed cards in "The Woman Of Bond” style. The numbering is the same mess as for the anniversary series, the numbers are WA38 and WA47. The last sixteen cards are full bleed autographed cards numbered from xxx-01 thru xxx-16. The full bleed collection has an exclusive autographed card from Pierce Brosnan in "GoldenEye". The card was for sale on eBay on the 20th May for only 709€.

Prices in that region really do scare the living daylights out of me. Also quiet rare are the cards signed by Michael Madsen, he is the only one that signed with red ink. The same card signed in blue ink was available through the Rittenhouse reward program. The last autographed card is a duo signed card by Richard Kiel and Blanche Ravalec. A few years ago I met Miss Ravalec at a movie convention in the Netherlands where she attended a signing session. A very nice lady who lives in Paris.

Case toppers, three-case and nine-case incentive cards are a must have for the many collectors. This trading card set comes with three different case toppers. The first case topper is the card VB6 picturing Daniel Craig. The card is an addition to the already five existing "Bond Vintage" card collection issued in 2004 with the "Quotable James Bond" trading card series. Card JBR6 is a relic card holding a piece of leather from the speed boat used in "Live And Let Die" and an addition to the "James Bond Heroes and Villains" chase card set, when you purchased three cases, then that card is already yours. The nine- case incentive card contains a piece of Daniel Craig’s shirt that he use to wear during the casino scene in "Casino Royale" and, the card is also personally signed by himself. A must have for the die-hard collectors.

If your wallet can afford to buy 18 cases, then Rittenhouse Archives has the pleasure to offer you the James Bond Mission Logs Archive Box. The archive box doesn't contain the base set and the 3-case incentive card.

And last but not least is the exclusive binder to stock all your precious cards. The binder comes in black scuba vinyl with a background showing the MI6 logo. The centre displays the mission logs trading cards logo. As always the binder comes with the promotion card P3 showing an action scene from "Live And Let Die".

"Mission Logs Exclusive Binder & Promo card P3"

Only sixty six basic cards, each card side displays one action scene. So there are one hundred and thirty two new pictures to collect. Starting from "Dr. No" thru "Quantum Of Solace" each movie has three cards, some cards are in full colour, other are printed in black and white. Don't ask me why? In 2014 with the release of the "James Bond Archives Edition 2014" an expansion set was included holding three "SkyFall" cards. So we just have to wait for the three "SPECTRE" cards to complete all the movies.
