Well the auction states that its from Iron Man, but it looks like he just copied the text from his other auction(s). A lot of times they release these types of cards with trading cards and make them rare to get in a pack.

The pieces or swatches are usually so small they really dont hold any money value. For that price i would say its worth taking a gamble if you "must" have part of the costume.

Yeah, I noticed the Iron Man thing too haha. I think it'd be pretty cool to have, and it's only $10 so I guess I'll go for it. Thanks!

I haven't noticed which company supposedly produced these. I can't see a Marvel or Sony logo anywhere either. Even though those things make me suspicious, I've bought a similar item that claims to contain a piece of a Star Trek Worf costume. There are legit companies that make such items, but it is odd that this company is claiming to have ruined a valuable costume to sell it in 100 tiny $10 pieces.

I can see where the companies are coming from. I knew someone who had one of the HERO NOES part 5 (i believe) sweaters. He chopped that up into swatches and sold them for $25 a piece. He made a killing selling them at a convention that Robert Englund was at.

I dont agree with the practice but it defintely happens. A lot of times card companies like Topps will do that as well. They say one out of every 50 packs will contain a swatch from <insert movie name>. I know the Harry Potter movies did that as well.

It definately does happen. There were costume cards for Superman Returns too. But the photo of the Spiderman 3 card seems to show an edition size of 100- which seems like a small edition size for a costume someone has just chopped up. Maybe they just chopped up a glove- who knows? I'd want the seller to identify which company put this out before I would consider it.

Taking a better look at the card it says this was a piece of leg section of the costume and was obtained from the Hollywood Vault. Hollywood Vault was an ebay seller that offered movie wardrobe pieces- since you can actually check Hollywoodvault's feedback to see if they sold such an item, i am more inclined to call it legit now. Good luck.
