Part of Funko’s ever-expanding lineup of vinyl collectibles, Funko Pop Trading Cards offers a collaboration, of sorts, that mixes the familiar figure style with past card designs.
Panini Prizm Basketball jumpstarts the new Funko Pop Trading Cards series with six NBA stars. Each player is paired with a trading card art image via an enlarged backdrop, and the 4.5-inch figure attempts to match the look.
The 2020 Panini Prizm Football figures came next, featuring elite quarterbacks Justin Herbert, Lamar Jackson, Patrick Mahomes, and Tom Brady.
While the exterior box maintains Funko’s traditional box layout, complete with numbering, the product arrives in an oversized display case (7.5″ W x 10.5″ H x 3.25″ D) that can be mounted on the wall. Retail pricing for the common figures is $19.99.
Look for Gold exclusives sold directly by Panini as a “Dutch Auction” with pricing starting at $125 and dropping until it hits $25 or sells out.
At this time, Funko has not revealed whether the overall set will add more card brands in the future
