The Titanic Centenary card set commemorates one of the worlds worst maritime disasters, detailing the history of the ship, crew and passengers from it’s construction to it’s eventual tragic fate. This card series also puts some of the most sought after historical artefacts imaginable into the hands of card collectors for the first and perhaps only time. We will be including very rare authentic sections of wreck wood recovered from the disaster, along with a host of other historically important artefact cards, and a limited number of sketch cards along other inserts. In the basic set you will find detailed historical facts about the ship, it’s construction, crew and passengers. We will also include facts about items that remain on the wreck . The set includes images from vintage photos, advertisements, wreck dive photos, a selection of Stuart Williamson’s fantastically detailed paintings and more.
Every 27 card factory set comes with chase cards, and the sets are available in two versions which are detailed below:
The hobby is limited to just 500 sets (50 cases) worldwide. Each Hobby set will contain a premium insert. Premium inserts include: Sketch cards, authentic material threads, signatures, fabric, salvaged coal and for the first time ever: Authentic salvaged Titanic wreck wood. These is a certified fragment of wood from the ship, salvaged at the time of the sinking. Look for the even rarer Sister Ships card containing a fragment from both the Titanic and Olympic.
Retail sets are limited to 1,500 sets (150 cases) and include premium inserts at a minimum rate of 2 per case however we expect this to be much higher. Each factory pack comes with the full 27 card retail set and chase cards. There are variations between the Hobby and Retail sets so you will be able to tell which set you have and this will also be clearly marked on the external packaging.
