The earliest trading cards featuring sports stars have circulated since as far back as the 19th century, but the entire Trading Card game was changed in 1993 when trading cards introduced a gaming element, with Magic: The Gathering. Six years later in 1999, the Pokemon Trading Card Game was launched, followed by the Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game in 2002 and Dragon Ball card game in 2005.
This transformation took trading cards from a simple collectible trading item to a strategic challenge used to stage battles against friends and other enthusiastic community members. The infinite possibilities ignited the imaginations of fans and players, and to this day tournaments and competitions bring communities of players everywhere together to celebrate the games they love.
It’s the perfect hobby, or for those who take it a little more seriously, the perfect sport with annual championships and pro tours attracting thousands of competitors every year.
