Baltimore-based social media company Phantasy Tour today officially unveiled their first series of live music trading cards. These high quality, collectible trading cards feature photos of top touring bands from various musical genres. The front of each card displays a photo of the musician or band and the back includes biographical information, fun facts, trivia questions and a foil stamp of authenticity. An online catalog of all cards in the series is available at https://phantasy.cards.
In the inaugural set, collectors will find cards featuring STS9, Leftover Salmon, The Disco Biscuits, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Tropidelic, TAUK, Goose, Bumpin Uglies and The Jauntee. Each pack of Series One Phantasy Tour Trading Cards contains 9 randomly sorted collectible cards featuring a musician or entire band. There are a total of 50 unique cards in the series. There is also a checklist card in every pack.
Phantasy Tour donated the space on the back of each checklist card to Backline to promote the great work they are doing in support of the musicians we love and the people that support them. Backline is a hub for music industry professionals and their families to quickly and easily access mental health and wellness resources. More information about Backline is available at https://backline.care.
