2006 Topps: Superman Returns Movie Cards

Return of a Hero
 
On May 17, 2006, Topps released the Superman Returns Movie Cards set.
The set is comprised of 90 base cards. 
The base cards include scenes from the original opening sequence to Krypton that was cut from the theatrical release. The back of each base card contains a decipherable Kryptonian message. Embossed foil insert cards contain a Kryptonian alphabet key.
There are 7 cards per pack. Retail blaster boxes contain 6 packs. Retail inserts include foil-embossed images of Brandon Routh, magnets, and stickers. Retail blister packages contain 2 packs of 7 cards plus an additional bonus card. Hobby boxes contain 24 packs of 7 cards with chances of finding embossed foil inserts, fabric relics, and autographed cards. Foil embossed cards are inserted in approximately 1:12 packs.  
The odds of finding a "Saved By Superman" memorabilia card from the cast are about 1:32 hobby packs The odds of finding a piece of Superman's cape are 1:71 packs, blue suit relics are 1:218, and red briefs are 1:445.
Stickered autograph cards are also randomly inserted into approximately 1:92 hobby packs. The odds of finding a signature from Brandon Routh are 1:1110 packs. Kevin Spacey autograph odds are 1:2450 packs.

Promo cards were distributed to dealers and inserted inside of the April/May 2006 issues of Non-Sport Update and Wizard.

Six limited edition collector's tins were released in retail stores. Each tin contains 35 base cards, one exclusive lid card, and an exclusive storyline card. A "Collector's Update Edition" was advertised to be released in October 2006, but the cards were never issued to the public.

Superman Returns is the first Superman set issued by Topps since Superman III in 1983.

Brandon Routh would later portray an alternate version of Superman in the 2020 "Crisis on Infinite Earths" crossover event on The CW.

The retail checklist consists of 90 base cards, 5 embossed foil cards, 10 stickers, and 9 magnets.
