2022 Cryptozoic Crisis On Infinite Earths Review Of The Pros
Cryptozoic’s Crisis on Infinite Earth has a lot going for it. It brings one of the most significant Super Hero events in TV history to the hobby. In addition, its 50-card base set highlights the best scenes from all five exciting episodes of CW’s Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event on a high-quality, rare card printed on foil board.
When it comes to non-sport cards, few companies create cards that stand up to CZX’s. However, the extensive array of stars allows for an impressive number of autographs, and the 2022 Cryptozoic Crisis on Infinite Earth trading card feasts on this.
Fans can expect on-card autographs from all of their favorite superheroes. With a “top-level” autograph guaranteed in every case, even the slightly pricy cost of this box wouldn’t be able to keep fans away. Among the signers’ list is Stephen Amell as Green Arrow, Grant Gustin as The Flash, Melissa Benoist as Supergirl, Tom Welling as Clark Kent, Erica Durance as Lois Lane, and Caity Lotz as White Canary.
2022 Cryptozoic Crisis On Infinite Earths Review Of The Cons
The only thing fans do not like about the 2022 Cryptozoic Crisis on Infinite Earths cards is how long CZX made them wait for a release. Released about 2.5 years after the show aired, fans had a long wait for this trading card goodness. This long wait isn’t particularly new to CZX, as they require at least two years to work on each card release.
2022 Cryptozoic Crisis On Infinite Earths Review Of Value
Non-sports cards can be very cool. However, they often suffer lower values than their athletic-oriented counterparts. So, how does this release measure up?
The 2022 Cryptozoic Crisis on Infinite Earths is unique as it’s a standalone release. However, we shall consider similar Cryptozoic trading card sets and see just how well they’ve fared.
|Cryptozoic CZX Super Heroes & Super-Villains||$309|
|DC’s Legends of Tomorrow Trading Cards Season 1 & 2||$99.95|
|DC Bombshells Trading Cards||$126.95|
|Outlander Trading Cards Season 2||$375|
|The Flash Trading Cards Season 2||$215|
|Gotham Trading Cards Season 2||$115|
If previous releases are any indication, wax does not have a massive appeal for these ultra-modern superhero releases.
|Gotham Season 2 Autograph Card JF2 James Frain as Azrael||$124|
|Outlander Season 4 Quad Wardrobe Card: Caitriona Balfe, Sam Heughan, John Bell||$1,225|
|Outlander CZX Triple Autograph Card CRS Caitriona Balfe & Rankin & Skelton||$1,080|
|DC Super Hero Villain Harley Quinn Margot Robbie AUTO BGS STR PWR Silver||$1,345|
|CZX Super Heroes & Super-Villains Sketch Card By Jennifer Allyn||$900|
|The Flash Season 2 Black STR PWR Bio Chase Card CB08 Patty Spivot 1/1||$392.48|
|Gotham BTL Season 1 Autograph Card CB Camren Bicondova As Selina Kyle||$249.61|
As always, we ensure to spread out the value of the cards to ensure cards from various series are represented. While the prices of both Gotham cards are modest, it’s not a correct indicator of the worth of Crisis on Infinite Earths cards. The value of single cards is mainly dependent on demand. As such, series with many fans would naturally have cards worth higher than series with fewer viewers. A good example is Outlander and CW’s Super Heroes & Super Villains set, whose auto and wardrobe cards easily sell for over $1,000.
While that is an impressive figure, Crisis on Infinite Earths had considerably more viewers than both shows combined. This fact bodes well for the value of its single cards going forward. Already, Tom Welling Autograph sold for $3,000 just a few days after release.
Bottomline Of The 2022 Cryptozoic Crisis On Infinite Earths Review
Crisis on Infinite Earths is without a doubt one of the greatest crossovers in DC’s show history, and we expect the card to live up to such standards. With impressively well-made cards, premium stock, and foil highlights, as well as a monstrous lineup of signers, this release is set to be one of the most sought-after television card sets. So if you’re a fan of the show, you should grab a box if you can lay your hands on one. Since their release, the prices have increased steadily, and we expect them to maintain that trend.
Investment-wise, there’s a ceiling when investing in non-sport cards. You can see that in the past’s wax performance of similar products. However, the singles can be pretty strong. Especially the autos among them. When we take the quality of these cards into account, the 2022 Cryptozoic Crisis on Infinite Earths singles offer a strong ROI.
