As the years have gone by, the DGPT Trading Cards have gained a following, now to the point where their historical popularity should not go understated! In 2016, 100 Decks and 1,000 card packs were created, and almost the entirety of them sold through pre-order. In 2017 we expanded production due to popularity and produced 200 decks and 2000 card packs. In 2018 we continued to grow with 2500 card packs and 250 complete decks switching printed year and representing the 2019 season and the year to come. This year, we’ve expanded the total number of cards that will be printed, and reduced inventory slightly, upping the rarity and collectibility of the 2020 edition cards.
For those just now entering the card collecting game, 2016 cards are rare and hard to procure. The 2017 cards are a little bit easier, with decks and packs still available in our online store. This year we saw an increased interest in our trading card decks, and we sold out of those at the Tour Championship; however, there are still some packs available.
An entire trading card culture now exists within the disc golf community, including a Facebook page dedicated to the trading of cards.
For 2019 we are going to adjust some production numbers and emphasize what we know fans want the most. We will maintain the 250 decks created number, but those are split across two types of decks. One hundred decks will feature every card made for the 2020 season. These are available only through pre-order . Player decks will be One hundred and fifty decks which will feature all of the players. The player cards are increasing this year to fifty men and twenty women. You can also pre-order those decks at this time. Finally, with the increase of player cards, there will be an increase in the number of cards within the trading card packs. You will now receive 12 cards in the trading card pack. Those are also now available for pre-order .
The 2020 trading cards also feature a new 2020 card emblem on the corner of each card. The start of the presale has already got us excited for the 2020 season, and we hope you are too! Trading cards will be ready to ship in time for delivery before the holiday season in mid-December making these great gift ideas for the holidays. Soon after that, we’ll be back on Tour and we can’t wait to see fans out at every Pro Tour stop next season looking to get their cards autographed!
