A Supernatural case break: An ode to Sam Winchester



I waited for one product most of the year. When I heard Cryptozoic got the rights to make a Supernatural product, I knew I was getting a case. Even better was that the Winchester brothers (Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki) were ‘under contract’ to sign for the product.

As the product came closer to release (around Thanksgiving), the two brothers’ named were removed from the signers list. At that point, I figured I wouldn’t get a case – even though it was one of my New Year’s resolutions – but the collecting itch got the better of me. I bought a case of Supernatural cards because I love collecting and I love Supernatural.

I opened a box earlier, but no, it was time for an entire case.

Each box guarantees an autograph and a wardrobe card, but the boxes that contained a dual wardrobe card also had four total hits, which gave me a good amount of autographs and wardrobe cards – and not one single double, even from the one box I opened a few days before.


Here is a look at the wardrobe cards I pulled – with a bit of commentary from me.

Many of the actors appeared early in the series. This release is dedicated to Seasons 1-3, so there are some actors that will appear here and not in other seasons of the show. There are also characters who appear sparingly throughout the series. While some of those actors weren't my favorite pulls, I was so happy to get a wardrobe card of Jeffrey Dean Morgan. I miss him. 





Even though the brothers didn't sign for the set, they did have wardrobe cards -- plenty and plenty of wardrobe cards. While I only pulled one wardrobe card belonging to Dean Winchester, his cards were slightly tougher. Of the 20 that could be found in the product, his character has just four wardrobe cards. 

But Sam Winchester was a completely different story. There were sooooooo many Sam wardrobe cards. Of course, 11 of the 20 wardrobe cards belong to his character. I am still missing two. 










My favorite pulls were the dual wardrobe cards. I got three of these with two still left in the chase. 




So, that's what wardrobe cards came in a case of Supernatural. I feel that's a good number of wardrbe cards. I still need 10 total wardrobe cards to complete the set, which is a goal of mine next year. 

Here are the cards I need: 

M03 Sam Winchester
