Batman, Robin, Batgirl and Two-Face. This might sound like the line-up for a summer blockbuster movie, but it's actually a list of some of the characters played by celebrities featured in Donruss Americana trading cards.
Donruss has been making non-sports trading cards since the 1960s. This innovative new set features a mix of celebrities from television, politics, sports and cinema. The set spans a wide range of genres like sci-fi, horror, action, classics and even a mix of comic book heroes and villains. Over 100 celebrities are featured in this set, each lending their personal autographs and clothing to be placed on trading cards with Donruss guaranteed authenticity.
Comic book aficionados can collect a whole cast of comic book heroes, including Val Kilmer and Adam West who have both portrayed Batman. Also in the set are Burt Ward, who played Robin in the 1960s "Batman", and Dina Meyer, who played future Batgirl Barbara Gordon in the "Birds of Prey" television series. Billy Dee Williams also has a Batman credit with his role as Two-Face's alter-ego, Harvey Dent, in 1989's "Batman" movie.
Other comic book veterans in Americana include John Travolta and Lou Gossett, Jr., who have both faced off against The Punisher on the big screen, Lori Petty who has done voice work for "Superman: The Animated Series" in addition to her film career, and even larger-than-life professional wrestler Ultimate Warrior had a short stint in comics where he infamously fought and defeated Santa Clause.
Adam West and Burt Ward can be found on Co-Star Materials with a swatch of clothing from each actor, and Co-Star Signatures which have each actor's signature on one card. Billy Dee Williams can also be found on a Co-Star Signatures card with his Star Wars co-star, Carrie Fisher. Donruss Americana is available now and guarantees one autograph or memorabilia card in each pack.
