2019 Panini Fortnite Series 1 trading cards are helping launch a new global license covering the massively popular video game. It covers a variety of aspects of the Fortnite experience.
Collectors can expect to find a variety of box configurations targeting both hobby and retail.
2019 Panini Fortnite Series 1 Trading Cards Overview
The main checklist is a big one, covering 300 cards. But within that are several tiers, some of which are more common than others. It starts with 100 base cards, which are the most common. The remaining 200 cards are split evenly between Uncommon, Rare, Epic and Legendary.
Legendary cards are the toughest, with two in every hobby box (approximately 1:12 packs). Epic cards are four per hobby box (1:6).
Uncommon, Rare, Epic and Legendary cards also have Holofoil parallels, which are one per hobby box.
As far as subject matter goes, cards look at all angles of the game. Characters, screen grabs, weapons, skins and loading screen art can all be expected.
There are exclusive cards as well. A pre-order bundle on the Panini website includes a hobby box, a binder to hold the cards as well as nine cards not available anywhere else. The cost of the bundle is $60 versus $48 for a hobby box on its own.
This is the first in a series of Fortnite trading card sets Panini has planned. As the video games expands and evolves, so too will the number of cards.
Besides trading cards, Panini is also launching a Fortnite sticker collection that will be available all over the world.
