Trading Cards

Trading cards have been a popular hobby for generations. From sports cards to collectible card games, these little squares of cardboard offer infinite possibilities for collectors and players alike. The origins of trading cards can be traced back to the 1800s, when tobacco companies would include small cards in their packaging to incentivise customers. These cards featured images of famous athletes or actresses and quickly became popular.

These cards are produced by a variety of companies, including industry giants like Topps, whose products include the 2023 Topps Cosmic Chrome Baseball Hobby Box. Trading cards have evolved to cover different themes, from sports, movies, and television shows to comic books and video games. Collectible card games like Magic: The Gathering and Pokémon cards are another popular form of trading card, with players using decks they build themselves to compete against others.

The defining feature of trading cards is their collectability. They are usually produced in limited quantities, with special or rare cards commanding high prices on the secondary market. Some types of trading cards feature unique attributes, such as autographs or pieces of game-worn memorabilia, adding further value for collectors.

One way to pair trading cards is to create a collection of a specific theme or genre. For example, sports collectors may focus on collecting inclusive cards like the 2023 Topps Inception UEFA Club Competitions Football Hobby Box, while comic book fans may collect cards featuring their favourite characters. Additionally, some collectors may pair like categories, such as collecting horror movie trading cards, or even creating their own fan-made categories.
