Arrow Cryptozoic The Vampire Diaries Season 3 Trading Cards Q1 2014 (Official)

The Vampire Diaries Trading Cards Season 3



The CW's number-one series continues for another season of epic romance, suspense and a bloody good thrill ride. Based on the best-selling book series, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES is the story of two vampire brothers, obsessed with the same gorgeous girl, who are battling to control the fate of an entire town.

Last season, the appearance of the vengeful Katherine Pierce threw a wrench into the love triangle between Stefan, Elena and Damon, and the other residents of Mystic Falls were forced to choose sides as they fell victim to a new breed of danger. Stefan and Damon were later met with their greatest challenge yet -- the arrivals of Elijah and Klaus, two of the Original vampires. As Klaus went head to head with Damon and took a special interest in Stefan, he also seemingly focused on breaking the "Sun and Moon" curse by sacrificing Elena; never swaying from his mission, no matter the action the brothers took, he proved to be the most powerful vampire in existence.

Season three opens the door to learn more about Klaus and the Original Family as his motives for wanting Stefan on his side are finally revealed. As Stefan sinks deeper into the dark side, Damon and Elena struggle with the guilt of their growing bond, even as they work together to bring Stefan back from the edge. Plus, the ghosts from Jeremy's past have a powerful message they're trying to deliver to him, not to mention the impact they're having on his relationship with Bonnie. And, as Caroline and Tyler grow closer, a war erupts between their families.

Key Features:
  • This critically acclaimed show captures millions of viewers each week!
  • Inspired the sexy new series, THE ORIGINALS set to air later this year.
  • Look for randomly inserted Autograph and Wardrobe cards!

I was looking through the returned autos the other day on their site. I really like the autograph card design in general.

Looks like yesterday was a big day at the mailbox for Cryptozoic. These all show a 2/12 posting date on the site. 8 total added yesterday...









Seems odd that you'd add an "a" after each image file. Would seem to be a classification, possibly indicating variations?

Thanks for the update. Cryptozoic always add an 'a' to all their uploads. The auto/mem cards have a 'b'.

I guess the Autograph/Wardrobes will be the first three autographs of this set although the numbering of them show AM1; AM2; AM3. Seems a bit off to have the number sequence be as follows AM1; AM2; AM3; A4; A5... etc.

I see there is five openings in the autograph list (A4, A10, A13, A14, A16) but four signers with cards outstanding (Joseph Morgan, Daniel Gilles, Sebastian Roche, and Persia White) whom is missing?

Added the new additions to the Autograph List above and images to the Gallery

See what happens when they wait a full year between sets and don't just pump out a set for the sake of capturing cash flow like BBT5? This set looks great again.

Updated new images.

Looks like Joseph Morgan signed only some with facial expressions/attributes. Steven R. McQueen has different facial expressions/attributes drawn on as well.

Still only see 20 signers but card numbering to 21...

The ONLY one they didn't get was Matthew Davis it looks like, and he's not even that big of an autograph.

Agreed, this will be a great release. Kudos to Cryptozoic for doing a great job on this particular set!!

Only outstanding signer that has not returned their cards is Daniel Gillies according to Cryptozoic's list, yet A10 and A13 are unfilled. He cannot account for both spots.

True, but Alaric (Matt Davis) played a big part in Season 3 and I would have loved to have his autograph for this set. He did sign for the previous sets though, so it's ok. Season 3 was his last season alive as a human. It's possible that he could appear in future sets as he returned a couple times in ghost form and as Silas. People who are big fans of the show typically really love him.

Danni, I should have stated more clearly that I only meant monetarily not a huge loss, as his auto's are typically $20-35. After BBT 5, I was more worried about Nina's auto not being in this set.

Update: Daniel Gillies will not be participating in the set. (Misspelled everywhere by Cryptozoic)

So, 19 signers (20 even with Gillies) with an autograph set numbered to 21.

Autograph set holes A10 & A13.

If Gillies would have returned his cards there would still be an autograph missing...

EDIT: I have found the missing signer that Cryptozoic failed to put on their trading card page for this set...Matt Davis as Alaric Saltzman* whom is listed here (http://cryptozoic.com/blogs/autograph-policy-revisions). Looks as if he will fail to make the set as well, leaving A10 & 13 unfilled.
