Our Story

I have always loved trading cards. As a child I collected baseball cards, and then got into Garbage Pail Kids and other non-sports cards. Most recently Star Wars cards have been a fun item for me. About 10 years ago, I decided I wanted to try my hand at making trading cards. I made several attempts, even getting as far as getting proofs made, but due to cost and time restraints, I was never able to finish the project. But my passion for creating a set of cards never faded.

Finally at the end of 2019, I decided I was going to finish my passion project, and what you see on this site is the end result. I have always been interested in politics and combined with my love of trading cards and knowledge of design and technology, I was able to follow through. I am incredibly proud of these cards and it is my hope that others will also find them enjoyable and educational. 

All proceeds from the sale of the cards go to pay for the production and advertising of the cards, and anything left over will allow me to create more card sets in the future. I look forward to creating trading cards for states, state capitals, and even animals and landmarks. I welcome you to join me on this journey. It's been incredibly rewarding and exciting for me, and it is my hope that I can pass that joy on to as many other people as possible.
