    Default Alpha Flight in Trading Cards

    Here's my attempt to compile all the trading card appearances. I won't be scanning today.

    There's a series that had scenes:
    #34 is the cover of #15

    This thread is rapidly becoming hard to follow. Phil, could you put this up as a wiki article for us to manage better or add it to the Appearances forum which you moderate?
    Are you an Alpha Flight Collector?

    It's probably not worth starting a wiki for it just yet.
    We can move this thread to the appearances section, or just keep it here as a dump/sortbox thread until we have a definitive list of cards which we can then split up into a thread and a gallery folder.

    However everyone best feels it'd work?

    Congrats, Phil! Which series is that? I'm not sure I recognise them?

    (Obviously late enough to have v2 characters... from Marvel Overpower, perhaps?)

    They're Overpower of some kind, I'm not entirely sure what though.

    I was going to add more, but this is getting even more long winded than before.

    I've got the Masterpieces '92 one, either the card or in the comic-book reprint, but none of the others.
    But most of those came out after the card industry priced itself out of the market.

    Yeah, the others are all recent, hence the recycled artwork.
