Cards : 1996 Team Metal
Here's something different. This four-card set is manufactured entirely
out of metal. There are four metal cards, made of thin sheet metal with
rolled edges, with full painted art both sides. The set comes in a
metal presentation tin. Neat, huh? The set is actually very cheap to
acquire, even now more than ten years after it was produced, you can pick
them up for a few bucks at trade shows, or on eBay.
The "cards" themselves are nicely manufactured, though the art is actually
pretty ordinary stuff, and the text is completely worthless. These cards
are only really appealing for their novelty value, they not actually that
artistically appealing or valuable to collectors. Still, they're fun,
even if they are a bit hard to put in standard card folders.
