…Well, I get my 2015 Upper Deck Dinosaurs from COMC… because I haven’t been able to find them anywhere else.
Like a lot of kids, I was fascinated by dinosaurs… I’m not sure how many other kids were like me and wanted to be an archaeologist when they grew up, though. So when I read the series of posts on Nachos Grande where he opened a box of 2015 Upper Deck Dinosaurs, I was excited. I would’ve freaked out about this set if it came out when I was a kid.
I wanted some of my own… but could not find packs or boxes anywhere. It didn’t get sold in retail stores. I didn’t see it in the couple of hobby stores I went into. I even tried a science museum… Yes, a SCIENCE MUSEUM. No luck at all.
Since I don’t feel the need to collect the whole set, I figured I’d get my fix by buying a couple of cards from COMC, and I focused on some of the dinosaurs I knew from childhood (as opposed to some of the one’s I’d not heard of like Spinophorosaurus or Compsognathus).
…Although even if I wasn’t familiar with Allosaurus, I would’ve gotten this card. This is easily my favorite of all the cards I’ve seen so far.
The back of the cards features the same image, with some write-up text.
I also got the Stegosaurus card…
…as well as the Ankylosaurus. All three of these are dinosaurs that I used to have as small, brightly-colored figures when I was a kid.
Because it’s a 21st century card set, there are short prints, sketch cards, minis, 3-D cards and other inserts, but right now all I have is these three base cards.
Does anyone else enjoy these cards? Has anyone found individual packs for sale anywhere, even if it was a card store?
