Obviously, the Star-Lord "DC" shown stands for Die-Cut.
There's at least 3 chase sets there. I wonder if any of them are exclusive to these packs.
The highest WP base card so far is #47, so there's at least that many in the base set, probably 50 in all. "WP" could stand for WalMart Premium or WalMart Promo.

I might get one more pack while these are available, but that'll likely be it for me.

Walking into a Walmart is never pleasant, but maybe these are worth it.

My WP base card (the one that shows Star Lord, Gamora and Draxx) is numbered 47, so potentially 50 cards in my opinion

I did manage to find these at a different Walmart this morning, and picked up a few packs of t-shirts as I needed them anyway. I really like the cards and would LOVE to put a set together, but I'm not sure how much sense that makes economically unless I can find another way to get them.

I did pull base cards WP-48 and WP-50, so the set goes up to 50 at least. At 2/pack, that is 50 packs with perfect luck just to complete the base set.

I sadly pulled duplicates of a sweet Rocket Racoon base card, but FFF already pulled the same one.

Hence the need to actually trading the cards, no?

Easier said than done, and also not very economical unless you happen to find just 2 or 3 people that can trade you big chunks of what you need for your collection. I've tried trading a lot over the years, with very little success. When it comes to base and basic inserts, it would usually have been cheaper to buy on ebay and sell my extras there.

That's one great thing about epacks is that you can trade physical cards back and forth several times without incurring shipping charges that would make it costly to trade through the mail (until you cash out cards). I can't wait until this set hits epack.

I will pull the sku when I get home, but my guess is it is the same as the package without cards. The cards are essentially taped around the underwear package. Walmart.com has a similar package, but no indication that it comes with GotG cards.

Post scans of your haul. Did you pick up any of the CC subset?

Incidentally, an active auction for 2 packs of these (just the CARDS, not the boxers) that is ending tonight is going for $23.50 with 2 hours to go.

Upper Deck Marvel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 cinematic universe cards | eBay


So there actually might be some room to flip these and donate the boxers/undershirts to a homeless shelter and/or church.

This is fairly surprising, imo.

The bidding is shady as hell, and the person bidding it up has a lot of activity with this seller PLUS 6 retractions in the last 6 months. I haven't retracted a bid in 15+ years of using ebay, so that raises a red flag to me.

Now, I think there probably IS money to be made flipping these because you can easily remove the card packs without opening the pack of underwear. Its taped to the outside of the package, and can easily be removed with a knife. You could remove the packs and return the underwear for a full refund, or more honestly sell both the packs and the underwear separately.

The display at the Walmart I went to was already half empty, and displays like this are typically a one shot deal without no refills or replacements.

Especially since we don't know how many of these cards will be common to the inevitable retail and hobby releases in a month.

Its possible to just chalk this up to a seller hitting eBay at the right time given the fact the promo has been out a week+ in Walmart, and there still isn't much up on eBay. It's likely prices will fall as more hit eBay.

I picked up a pack of shirts and got these.



WP-44, CC-5, WP-31, and WP-31 in foil.

It's an interesting promotion, but if I were collecting, I wouldn't be very happy with the daunting task of putting a set together. That being said, I'll send these 4 to anyone in the US for the heck of it. First come first served. Respond to me here first so others know they're claimed and then shoot me a PM with your address.

2 packs. I guess these are the inserts? Very nice looking cards though. Even the base looks great.

Are there variations in foil patterns or are patterns standard?
