About This Card Series:   I believe there were 55 cards in the base set, and I'm not sure how many stickers.  "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves" was the blockbuster 1991 Robin Hood film starring Kevin Costner as the hero.  The movie was second only to "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" in terms of worldwide ticket sales for that year.  However, merchandising was sparse.  The movie, itself, has not retained any great, long-lasting popularity (unlike "Terminator 2").  It still stands as one of Kevin Costner's best films.

    I think the fact that "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves" did NOT have a strong merchandising engine, and that it wasn't followed up by a sequel, are the reasons why it's one of those "big movies" we just don't hear much about these days.

Featured Cards:  I won't display every card from this series because I don't think every card is necessarily attractive or otherwise special.  What you'll see here are some of the cards I think stand out.  I hope you enjoy these cards, too!

Christian Slater
Christian Slater as Will Scarlett.  It was around this time that Christian Slater started being really cool in movies.  Another great movie he was in, called "Kuffs", was released later in early 1992.

Kevin Costner
Kevin Costner as Robin Hood.  I've always felt this was one of his best movies.  This is one of those sticker card things where the backs of the cards form a picture when you put them all together.  The picture was the "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves" logo.  I like the castle design of the stickers.
