Baltimore-based social media company Phantasy Tour today announced the second series of their live music trading cards. These high quality, officially licensed trading cards feature the photos and biographical information of top touring musicians and bands across various genres. Purchases of Phantasy Cards financially support the featured bands, which is especially helpful during the pandemic. An online catalog of all cards in the series is available at https://phantasy.cards
Series Two of Phantasy Cards features ALO, Ballyhoo!, Billy Strings, Dumpstaphunk, Fortunate Youth, Ghost Light, lespecial, Lotus, Magic Beans, Papadosio, Spafford, and Yonder Mountain String Band. The full series includes a card for each band member and a full band card for each band for a total 68 cards to collect. Each pack contains 1 randomly selected card from each band in the series and one of two checklist cards. The backs of the checklist cards feature a 6-piece collectible puzzle from our sponsor, Section 119, makers of officially licensed Grateful Dead and Donut apparel (https://section119.com/). The cards showcase the work of both ametuer and professional concert photographers and were taken at venues large and small across the country. We’re pleased to have once again collaborated with Nate Gonzalez of The Moon Life Clothing on the design of the cards and packaging.
Phantasy Tour founder Paul Glace says “Series One was a huge success thanks to the bands and photographers that participated and the great reception received from fans. I’m so pleased that we’re able to offer another round of this fun collectible with a new eclectic group of bands. I hope this serves as a source of enjoyment for fans while live music is on hiatus due to the pandemic.”
Packs and boxes of Series Two cards are on sale now at https://merch.phantasytour.com.
