I Get All Of My Dinosaurs From COMC!

…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?

  1. I love these cards! My wife got me 2 of the lunch boxes off amazon. Out of one lunchbox you get 2 packs, a wooden puzzle of a random dinosaur, a poster, and 2 dinosaur figures. Love the 3-d cards too!

  2. These are new to me. I wasn’t a dinosaur kid but I had friends who were. As I am branching out more and more into non-sports cards I find a lot of cool things out there.

  3. Upper Deck did a great job with this set. Love the simple… borderless design. I’ve never actually looked for pack, so I’m not sure if I’ve seen them or not. But I might try to find a set of this stuff on eBay.
