For those of you who don't watch the show, here is a little background info on what it's about.
Most of us are familiar with classic literary characters like Dr. Frankenstein and Dorian Gray. This show goes in depth with those and other characters by exploring their origin stories in this thriller that takes place in the dark corners of Victorian London.
Sir Malcolm is an explorer who lost his daughter to the city's "creatures", and he will do whatever is needed to get her back and to right past wrongs. He is accompanied by Vanessa Ives in his search for his daughter Vanessa knows they need all the help they can get and recruits American Ethan Chandler in the search for Malcolm's daughter and to take care of some monsters along the way.
(Before going on I must note that my blog was being a bit stupid this morning so I had to use bullets in order to center my pictures, my OCD was being pushed to it's outer limits but it works)

Overall, a fun product. I like the base cards, the inserts are well designed and a good autograph checklist. Most of all, some incredible memorabilia pieces like no other. If you are a fan of the show, you need these. Even if you are not, I would say give them a try and add something a bit different to your collection especially if you are a non-sport card collector.
