Philly Non-Sport Card Show: Saturday

By Miranda Charsky

George and I traveled to Allentown, Pennsylvania for the 57th Annual Philly Non-Sport Card Show, and we are very excited to get to spend the weekend with some of our very favorite collectors, dealers, and fellow manufacturers! Today, we'll be giving away a few of our hard-to-come-by promo cards, as well as talking to fans about some of the products that we'll be launching in 2013 and beyond.

As one of our favorite adult-oriented animated series, Archer and his ISIS coworkers are always good for a laugh as they alienate each other, sabotage covert missions, and ensure a job for their HR director, Pam. Look for randomly inserted sketch cards in this trading card product that will stay very true to the show (rated M for Mature!). Archer Trading Cards feature Seasons 1-4, and are coming Fall 2013.

There are humans with super abilities living among us, and now they're collectible! We are very pleased to partner with NBC Universal and SyFy to create Alphas Trading Cards, which will feature episodic images from the first season. Fans can look forward to authentic Wardrobe and Autograph cards from the cast.

Celebrating its new time slot with over nine million viewers, ABC's Revenge remains a hit with fans, and we are very exciting to continue our partnership with ABC with the launch of the first Trading Card set for Revenge in 2013. Fans can look forward to authentic Autograph and Wardrobe cards, and the base cards will feature episodic images from Season 1.

Exciting new licenses weren't the only thing we had to show Philly Non-Sport attendees! Fans also got the first glimpse of two very special The Vampire Diaries reveals: Autograph/Wardrobe card for Season 2 of The Vampire Diaries! Nina Dobrev, who plays Elena Gilbert and Katherine Pierce; Ian Somerhalder, who plays Damon Salvatore; and Paul Wesley, who plays Stefan Salvatore, all signed on variant cards featuring pieces of wardrobe from flashback scenes! In addition to these awesome Autograph cards, we showed fans the exclusive card that will come with the Season 2 binder: a triple Wardrobe card featuring costumes for Katherine, Stefan, and Damon! If you haven't placed your orders for The Vampire Diaries Season 2 Trading Cards, you should contact your local dealer or distributor right away!
