A Look Back at Cryptozoic's Arrow Trading Cards Series

By Krystyl Chwa

As many of you already know, we will be releasing our highly anticipated Arrow Trading Cards Season 4 set in just a couple weeks. It's been two years since our first Arrow release (for Season 1), which we followed up with releases for the second and third seasons. Each set has boasted more amazing content that the one before and, with Season 4, we think we've created the best set for the show ever! As we're sure you'll agree, it's always best to go out on top, so the Season 4 set will be our final Arrow set.

As we prepare to release this last set, it felt like the perfect time to walk down memory lane and revisit all the previous sets based on the incredible TV series. Plus, it doesn't hurt to remind you that the earlier setswhich include some amazing props from the show!are still available.

We are incredibly proud of each Arrow set we’ve released and are excited to share this last one with our fellow fans of the show. Each set has featured a Base Set highlighting the unique storylines and characters from their respective seasons, as well as exciting Chase elements, such as Redemptions Cards, authentic Autograph Cards, and Wardrobe Cards featuring costumes from the show.

We've had an incredible ensemble of talented main cast signers, as well as a handful of notable guest star signers, appearing in the first three seasons of our Arrow Trading Cards. Fan-favorites like Katie Cassidy (Laurel Lance / Black Canary), John Barrowman (Malcolm Merlyn/ Dark Archer), and Emily Bett Rickards (Felicity Smoak) have had Autograph Cards appear in multiple sets.

Like previous sets, Season 4 packs will include Wardrobe Cards, Prop Cards, and Redemption Cards that can be redeemed for actual props used in the series. However, it will feature some new stuff as well! Season 4 will see the debut of rare, hand-drawn Sketch Cards, featuring art inspired by Season 4 of Arrow. The talented artist roster is comprised of Brendon and Brian Fraim, Carlos Cabaleiro, Dave Beaty, David Namisato, Elvin Hernandez, James Bukauskas, Mitch Ballard, Nina Edlund, Raz Ortiz, Scott Blair, and Val Hochberg.

 




 

 

It will also be the first Arrow set to have CZ STR PWR inserts! These cards are rare, high-quality, thicker cards printed using Cast and Cure technology. They come in Red, Silver, Gold, and Black variants.

Arrow Trading Cards Season 4 may be the end of this series, but it isn't goodbye! We have tons of great trading card sets coming soon that we can't wait to share with you!
