I got both the Biohazard and Resident Evil versions of em. They were released with Wildstorm (now owned by Marvel, I think) comic company. It was back when Capcom signed with them to publish the RE comics. They also released merchandise. Its only recently that the price for a full set skyrocketed. Its really quite astounding. I seen an entire set sell for 1000$ when 2 months earlier I paid 50$ for a whole set lol.

Yeah man, that time I almost bought them, I didnt have enough in the end, they were only up to like.... 50 bucks? Not sure, I know I didnt have enough left, cuz if I spent it on the cards I wouldnt have enough for some other thing. But JESus! They are up to 400 bucks!

How many were in the set anyways? I've seen those appearing for years on ebay but they were never anything insane like that. Normally it's the stuff that's straight outta Japan that you pay an arm and a leg for. Those cards okay but nothing to keep your bed warm at night so I never bothered even when they were cheap.

Well..It depends..
Officially there are 103 cards. However there are promo cards. One is the Biohazard Version and the other is the Resident Evil Version. Then, there is a Biohazard promo one with Leon on the front. Thats all I know of officially. So 105 Id say.

Oh boy, that sig I made transparent isnt working out lol. Got a BMP version of it I can try and work on?

105.... They got more than I realized though cause all the ones I seen were either holographs or they were just character cards. They just were screenshots and the like and unless you get something that is a little bit out there like drawn pictures or scenes that they took out from the game. Else I could just make them at home.

I think I've seen a few Resident Evil cards as well, are they part of the same set? Just when the comics were mention, the first one that had Jill and Chris on the front, seen a card of that but no idea from where it came.

Just completely off topic do I have to watch my lanuage on here because going back and editing out all my punctuation is driving me up the wall.

And sure I do, is it okay for me to email it? Or send it over AIM?

It might actually be part of the set that was mentioned with part of the 105, hadn't seen it up in awhile but this web site http://www.amryl.com/htmlpages/sidebar/cards1.html

About half way down has the one that I had seen. The Jim Lee one.

Well you never know when they are kids around and fuck you isn't exactly your conventional hello.

Thank you, you're a star.

Hi evryone.

I don't think Jim lee had ever signed the cards he was supposed to.

In the checklist wa can see the card signed listed, but i've never saw a card signed, maybe a lack of time?

Possibly will, I have never seen one signed either. (Hey there, arent you the same one I sold some items to on ebay? :))

I know near 10 peolple having the full set and i have it too, no one has the signed card.
The unsigned card isn't supposed to exist, only the signed card, so i guess they wanted to do it but they didn't for a mysterious reason...too bad...

(Yes it's me)
