Sneaker Trading Cards


I know the date because I have a reference point...it was the day Ben Baller dropped his Mike Trout Topps Project 2020 card: April 29, 2020. I was sitting in my car with my kids in the Dollar Tree parking lot waiting for my wife to bring back some Jamaican patties (FYI Dollar Tree is the only place on the West Coast that sells Golden Crust Patties) and I was just scrolling through Twitter. Baller tweeted about his card and I feel deep down the rabbit hole of sports cards in 2020. I was familiar with cards as I used to collect as a kid, but I stepped away from cards after things got to be more about money than it did about fun. So I was searching eBay for these completely-new-to-me Topps Project 2020 cards when it all hit me like a ton of bricks: ‘man, why hasn’t anyone made sneaker trading cards?’ That's when I decided I was going to do it myself.

Booster Boxes...

...contain 100 cards: 10 packs of 10 cards each (approx. 9 base + 1 insert per pack). (#824 packs have 8 packs of 12) With 70 base cards in each set - you'll be close to building a complete set through a single booster box. There's a lot of inserts, but keep in mind they vary in rarity. Some are going to be worth more than others.

Each and every card...

...is foil-stamped on glossy UV cardstock. Some are silver-foil stamped. Some are gold-foil stamped. Some are printed with holographic technology. They're ALL dope.

Current releases: Air Max Pax

Intended to be released on Air Max Day (3/26), but actually released 4 months later (7/26), the Air Max Pax is a collection of (a few of) the most popular Air Max models on the scene. There were hundreds - if not thousands of colorways to choose from - but we ended up with 3 of each model and a handful of insert cards. I don't know why, but 70 or so cards seems to be a reasonable number, so that's what we went with again. FULL CHECKLIST.

Past release: Dunky Dunks

Clearly the Dunk is one of Nike's most iconic silhouettes as it continually makes its way back into our collective consciousness every few years. The 2002-2005 era of Dunks (and SBs in particular) coincided around the time I began to look at shoes as a lot more than just something I'd wear - I started looking at them as something I could collect. The exclusivity and relateable storylines behind some of these shoes gave them an appeal unlike many other popular releases...their legacy is the stuff of legend.
