Neopets Trading Cards Launching Tomorrow
Posted by Joe on January 16, 2023, 2:14 pm NST
Upper Deck has provided a further update.
Already owned digital cards can now be redeemed for physical cards again.
These cards will still be needed to complete the Paint Brush Achievements at the end of the program so if you are planning on completing the set, you should wait until the end to have everything shipped.
Packs will still be limited to 499 per week and staying at $5.99 per pack.
No eta yet on next drop as they are still working with Jumpstart/Neopets on some details.
Due to the feedback received from the Neopets Community, Upper Deck has decided to put future releases on hold. They are working with The Neopets Team and will provide updates as available.
This morning physical redemption has been turned off for cards that people already own. (Their redemption status now reflects as "pending.")
The long awaited Trading Card series from Upper Deck will be launching tomorrow at 9am NST on UpperDeckePack.com
Upper Deck e-Pack features a hybrid of both digital and physical trading cards. The site allows you to collect and trade digitally, and then redeem certain
digital cards for physical copies.
All cards in this set will be eligible for physical card redemption. You must own the digital copy (and it must not have been previously redeemed!!) in order to claim the printed version. Digital cards may be traded within the app in order to complete your sets before redemption. Caution: Always check to see that the card you are trading for has not yet been redeemed before trading for it.
When redeeming physical copies of your cards, there is a flat shipping charge starting at $5.00 (USD) (with pricier options if you want expedited shipping), plus $1.00 for the first card and $0.25 for each additional card. The fees apply to each batch of cards you redeem, so to save money, wait until you have all the cards you're hoping to get physical copies of.
New packs will be released every Tuesday at 9am NST (a maximum of 499 packs per week for $5.99 each) for the next 9 weeks, each containing that week's 3 base series cards as well as one of three Baby variant cards.
Week one packs sold out in 12 minutes
1 in six packs will also contain a Faerie variant card. 1 in 12 packs a code card with a code redeemable for an exclusive item on Neopets.com. Printing plates (limited to 1 each) will also be randomly inserted.
