If you haven't ever watched Orphan Black, here is a quick summary.
The series stars Sarah Manning. who is known as a con artist, witnessing a suicide of a woman named Beth Childs who appears to be her doppelgänger. So doing what any con artist would do in that kinda situation, Sarah assumes Beth's identity and occupation as a police detective after Beth's death. This takes the meaning of if the shoe fits to another level.
However, Sarah discovers that her doppleganger was more than just that. She finds out she is a clone, that she has many 'sister' clones spread throughout North America and Europe, and that someone is plotting to kill them and her. So alongside her foster brother, Felix Dawkins, and two of her fellow clones, Alison Hendrix and Cosima Niehaus, Sarah discovers the origin of the clones and her adventure begins....
And our break now begins as well....
In every box of 2016 Cryptozoic Orphan Black, there are 5 Cards per pack and 24 packs per box. Boxes will run roughly $80 per.
There are 72 cards in the base set featuring episodic images from the first season. The cards are printed on high gloss and have nice full color photography.
You should complete a base set in a box.
The inserts fit the theme of the show and what Cryptozoic is known for doing.
There are 9 cards per insert set and you should get them all.
There are parallel cards to find. My pictures here don't really show them that well, but they are foil board parallels that fall 1:3 packs.
Quotes, the good ones from the show, fall 1:3 packs.
Character Bios fall 1:3 packs. I really like the design on these.
Felix's Loft fall 1:3 packs. If you turn the cards over, they are each individually a puzzle piece once put together .....
Make one big puzzle.
Now onto the hits.
My first hit is of Sarah's foster brother Felix. Cool design and unique swatch.
My next pull is an on-card autograph of David Richmond-Peck who plays Olivier Duval.

Overall, a solid break especially with the plate surprise at the end. I think the theme design elements look great throughout. The on-card autographs from the actors/actresses are bonus and some unique swatches for the wardrobe cards.
