In this article, we will do a deep dive in to all things Batman trading cards and give you a list of the most valuable ones ever sold. But before we go there, I'd like to give some history around the "Caped Crusader" and how the franchise has evolved over the years.
Matt Reeves’ The Batman, which premiered in March, has brought about a great resurgence to the masked vigilante’s fandom. The film stars Robert Pattinson as the caped crusader, but this Bruce Wayne is a sharp contrast from Christian Bale’s suave interpretation of the character or Ben Affleck’s ruthlessness. Instead, Gotham’s much-needed hero must fight serious internal battles, all while deciphering a sinister plot concocted by The Riddler, played by Paul Dano. If you haven’t watched it, I highly recommend it. Just make sure you have a clear schedule to make way for the 3-hour runtime.
Batman’s long and storied history doesn’t just revolve around this newest rendition, however. Fans of the character have been enthralled with the Dark Knight since his first comic book appearance in May 1939. That first comic, which is a highly sought-after collector’s item, has since spawned numerous films, television series, video games, and of course, trading cards.
