2011 Rittenhouse Archives Warehouse 13 Season 2 Premium Pack Break Recap and Review

2011 Rittenhouse Archives Warehouse 13 Season 2 in Premium Pack is as cool a find as any artifact secretly stashed in South Dakota.  Rittenhouse Archives has completely captured the feel of the show and put it in card form.

2011 Rittenhouse Archives Warehouse 13 Season 2 falls under our premium cards category.  Each Premium Pack contains 2 Episode Cards, 1 Relic Card, 1 Artifact Card and 2 Autograph Cards.  Each pack is individually numbered to 3000.  These can be purchased by individual packs or a 15 pack box. 

Here are the cards we pulled from our Premium Pack.

Overall Look
These are some smart looking cards with great photography and design.  Autograph cards come in two different designs to separate the main cast from episode guests.  The relic and artifact cards are great looking too.

Quality and Variety of the checklist
This is a small, limited edition set that covers on season.  In all there are 26 episode cards, 9 “Snag It, Bag It, Tag It” Cards, 9 Prop and Costume Cards and 18 Autograph cards.  Every main character is represented in the autograph cards.  Some of the hit cards are based on events form the season 1, which is a little weird for a product for season 2, but the quality of hits easily makes up for it.

Do the Hits satisfy?
Completely.  On-card autos are beautiful with the standard Rittenhouse Archives embossed text for authenticity.  Costume cards are outstanding with a picture of the actor wearing the piece and a picture of the actual costumes, after the production, makeup stains and all, with an exact description of who worn it and in which episode.  All relic cards should be like this, non-sport and sports!  The “Snag It, Bag It, Tag It” cards are right in line with the show and perfectly done.

Will you keep coming back for more?
This is an easy multiple purchase and if you are a true fan of the show, going for the sealed 15 pack box is a must.  You might as well get the custom-designed album and 9 card sheets while you are at it.

This is 2011 Rittenhouse Archives Warehouse Season 2 is a prime example of how good cards can be when a concept is carried through all the way.

  1. Indeed. The cards really are awesome. I'm a huge fan of the show and I love them. Too bad a 15-pack box runs far too expensive for me.
