While card show attendance and sales in general for trading cards continue in a downward spiral, Razor Entertainment once again has shaken up the Hobby with the announcement of a new product, titled ‘Razor Inkworks Archives’.
In case you missed it (Beckett Media sure did), Ryan Cracknell of the fabulously well-written ‘Trader Crack’s’ broke the news that Inkworks was shutting its doors. Rather than see these cards back doored as was the rumor during the demise of Pinnacle Brands, Brian Gray of Razor purchased the “archives” and has begun putting together ‘Razor Ink Archives’
I spoke with Brian this afternoon and he told me the SRP for ‘Archives’ will be between $15-20 dollars per pack with each Hobby box containing five packs. The autographs will be from almost all of Inkworks’ releases, including a unique, on-card autograph of the late actor, John Ritter.
Brian could not verify if Inkworks’ “Holy Grail”, an on-card Angelina Jolie autograph was in the inventory he purchased but if it turns out it’s not, he will be looking to purchase a few to insert into the product. Currently, the only Jolie Inkworks autograph on eBay has an asking price of $650 dollars.
