Who Collects XFiles Trading Cards?

Postby maurisap » January 8th, 2011, 8:59 pm

I've decided to start collecting XFiles trading cards. Does anyone here collect them? I need a primer...what to look for, if there are cards that are more rare, what was available at the time, etc.

Any websites that you know of that would be helpful?

Thanks!

I collect them. I have season 6 and 7 basic set (two of them actually, I could give one set away), IWTB basic set ( I can give one away too here). I have FTF basic set too. Then I have some really rare Scully/GA ones, with a piece of clothes she wore on the show, Frank Spotnitz autographed one and the actor who played Morris Fletcher too, the autographed one. I have some others too.
I want to have Gillian Anderson auographed card too but it's so damn expensive.
EDIT: I have "Connections" basic set too.

You cab buy them on eBay, maurisap!

I bought season 8 set and the connections set on ebay.

As I look at ebay, I see that there are Inkworks cards, Topps cards, some that seemed to come with magazines...I'm not sure if a set = basic set that still needs to be filled in more or if that really is all of them.

yeah i Topps started them. Made season 1 to 3, then didnt produce them for YEARS.

Then Inkworks took over with Season 4 and 5 as one set, season 6 and 7 as another and so on.

I used to have them all, ring binders, hollowgraphic and all that jazz. Brilliant collection. So much fun. But I grew up and gave them away...which i FULLY regret... :cry:

I didn't even realize that there were cards made for the later seasons. I've got all of the earlier sets (Seasons 1-4, I think). Might have to check eBay and other places; if they're priced right I might consider getting these others.
