JAMES BOND ARCHIVES 2016 (Rittenhouse)

Release Date
16 November 2016


Set Configuration:
76 Base cards
5 Cards per pack
24 Packs per box
12 Boxes per case
4000 Boxes

During September 2016 the Rittenhouse website announced a new James Bond trading card set to be released on the 16th November 2016. The previous card set was just issued in April, only eight months! The new cards set is devoted to the latest James Bond movie "SPECTRE". A seventy-six card base set retelling the movie scene by scene in trading card format. The first throwback is a forty-eight card displaying the 1970 blockbuster "Diamonds Are Forever", the second throwback is "Moonraker" were James Bond goes in space to hunt Drax and the last chase set is "The Living Daylights", the first movie with Timothy Dalton in the role of his majesty’s secret agent. The checklist was online on the 4th October except for the autograph & relic cards. The complete list was online on the 2nd November just two weeks before the release. This time there were only 4000 boxes, but no worries that's still good for a staggering 480000 cards. The counter display box reveals some poster art from "SPECTRE" and is a nice addition to a card collection.

Again three cards were created and distributed to promote this new set of James Bond trading cards. The promo card P1 showing a picture of James Bond in a scene from "SPECTRE", the promo card P2 showing Madeleine Swann and the promo card P3 displaying Blofelds henchman Mr. Hinx.

“Throwback Cards”



Three chase sets to collect at only one card in six packs. First we have a forty-eight card set retelling the entire "Diamonds Are Forever" movie in trading card format. Each card displays a black and white still in the front, the reverse has a text telling a part of the story and another smaller still also in black and white. The second chase is a sixty-one card set retelling the 1979 James Bond movie "Moonraker". The layout is identical to the first chase set except for the pictures being in colour. Some pictures are in black and white, don't ask me why. To me this is a mistake from "Rittenhouse", as I can not believe that they can't find one hundred and twenty two colour pictures of "Moonraker". The third chase set holds fifty-five cards to bring the "The Living Daylights" movie in trading card format. Again here we have a mixture of colour and black and white. All the cards are shown here below.

“Golden Parallel Cards”

Two golden parallel sets, the first chase set is "SPECTRE", were each card is individually numbered to only #100 at a ratio of only 1/24 packs. The second chase set is "The Living Daylights" were the cards are numbered to #125. Again these cards are to expensive for what they really are. But that me speaking. Enjoy the search to get them all.

"The Living Daylights "



“The Autograph Cards”

Twenty-nine new autograph cards divided in to four styles, "40th Anniversary Style", "Full Bleed Style", "Dual Autograph Style" and one "Autograph/ Relic" card. Eight new cards in the "40th Anniversary Style" including a card personally signed by Daniela Bianchi. Until now the last card in this series is A298, still leaving gaps for the card numbers (A155, A223, A224, A225, A267, A283, A291, A294 and A297). Eighteen full bleed cards including autographs from Dave Bautista as Mr. Hinx, Lea Seydoux as Madeleine Swann and Alessandro Cremona as Marco Sciarra. Three actors from the latest James Bond movie SPECTRE. The autograph cards are inserted by two in each box. The other three cards are explained in detail in the case topper section.

“Relic Cards”

Two types of relic cards (landscape format and portrait). Lucky for us collectors there are only thirteen new cards including one prop or relic from SPECTRE. Each card is individually numbered from 1 to maximum 200. Some cards only 125. Randomly packed by one for ninety-six packs makes these cards very hard to get (1/96). The new cards in landscape format are numbered from MR1 to MR6. The portrait card numbering runs from PR14 to PR20 and follows the numbering from the previous card set "James Bond Classics".

“Metal Cards”

I thought we were collecting cards made in hardboard, these are made in tin metal. Numbered from M1 to M12 each displaying the poster from a James Bond movie. Rittenhouse were is your creativity, in the past we had cards with posters in all kinds of formats. The reverse displays the month and year from the movie premiere and the card number. Again these cards are super rare, only one card can be found in one- hundred and forty four packs (1/144). Each card is individually numbered from #001 to #100.

“Double-Sided Mirror Cards”

The "James Bond Classics" introduced a new chase set know as the double-sided mirror cards. They started with the numbers M01, M04, M07, M10, M13, M16, M19 and M22. Each card displaying James Bond in the front while the reverse side shows the bad guy. Now you have the chance to update your chase set with the following numbers M02, M05, M08, M11, M14, M17, M20 and M23. Again these cards are extremely difficult to collect because only one card can be found in one-hundred and forty four packs (1/144).

“Case Toppers”

The Case Topper card CT1 comes as a bonus when purchasing a full case. The card is a "SPECTRE" metal poster card. The 6-Case incentive is a dual autograph card signed in person by the two gipsy girls Aliza Gur as Vida and Martine Beswick as Zora. The 9-case incentive card is signed by Jonathan Price and includes a piece of fabric from his suit as seen in "Tomorrow Never Dies". The 18-Case incentive is an autograph card signed by Clifton James as Sheriff J.W. Pepper in "The Man With The Golden Gun". The picture is from "Live And Let Die".

“Archive Box”

When purchasing 18 cases, you receive a set of archive boxes as a bonus. Yes a set of boxes, because a factory sealed Archive Box is actually two separate factory sealed boxes (labelled as A & B) all shrink-wrapped together. Within these sealed boxes are sealed packs, and within those sealed packs you find all of the following treasures.

  • Complete Moonraker Throwback set (61 cards)
  • Complete The Living Daylights Throwback set (55 cards)
  • Complete Diamonds Are Forever Throwback set (48 cards)
  • Complete Autograph set (26 cards)
  • Complete Relic set (13 cards)
  • Complete Double-Sided Mirror set (8 cards)
  • 10 different SPECTRE Gold parallel /100 cards
  • 10 different The Living Daylights Gold parallel /125 cards
  • 3 Promotional Cards
  • CT1 Case Topper
  • 6-Case Incentive Aliza Gur/ Martine Beswick Dual Autograph
  • 9-Case Incentive Jonathan Pryce Autograph/RelicCard
  • Archive Box Incentive Clifton James (Sheriff J.W. Pepper) TMWTGG Gun Autograph Card

Easy collecting but still missing the base set and most of the gold parallel cards, instead you receive an exclusive full bleed autograph card personally signed by Clifton James. Is this autograph really so special to spend between 1500€ and 2000€ on eBay. I have my doubts about that, but that's me.


Archive Box A

Archive Box B
 

Rittenhouse created a wonderful three-ring binder displaying poster art from the latest James Bond movie "SPECTRE". The binder is large enough to hold and protect your precious cards. As a bonus when purchasing a binder, you receive the promotion card P3 displaying a picture of Mr. Hinx.

"James Bond Archives 2016 Exclusive Binder"

If your wallet can afford to purchases one or more cases, then just go for it. Each case holds twelve boxes, each box has twenty-four packs each holding five cards. This makes a total of 1440 cards per case.

"James Bond Archives 2016 Case holding 12 boxes"

This time only seventy-six base cards. All the cards are printed in landscape, the reverse in portrait showing a different picture and a small text explaining the scène in the front. The pictures diplayed on the promo cards can also be found in the basic set as card #022 (P3), #031 (P1) and #047 (P2). OMG to Rittenhouse, was there nothing else to promote this card set.
