Breaking Barriers: Athletes Aren’t the Only Collectible Women – Athletes aren’t the only women making a name for themselves in the trading card world. Movie and TV franchises have influenced fandoms far and wide who are also willing to chase after any product featuring their favorite films, shows, and actors. It is especially exciting to see a woman as the point of pride for a trading card release from one of these major franchises.
Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen, the “Mother of Dragons,” is a major highlight for any fan of the Game of Thrones series. She has been a part of the Game of Thrones card sets over the last 10 years, but her featured place in the Iron Anniversary Series One from Rittenhouse is the best yet. Fans will have the opportunity to hunt for several variations of her autograph/inscription cards, costume relic/quote cards and autographed/relic/quote cards. The set also features high end base cards and character sketch cards. Any hit of Emilia Clarke from this set is bound to be exciting and satisfying for collectors.
While Daenerys is certainly her most iconic role, Clarke has also played a part in several other popular franchises with huge fandoms. She appeared as Qi’ra in Solo: A Star Wars Story, as Sarah Connor in Terminator Genisys, and is set to appear in a Marvel Cinematic Universe series for Disney+ called Secret Invasion to be released in 2022. With connections to these franchises, roles on London’s West End, and a co-written comic book series in the works, it is certain that Emilia Clarke’s star will be shining for years to come.
