Trading Cards: Index

Trading cards are normally 2.5" x 3.5" in size and sold in sealed packets containing several random cards. The idea is to build a complete set of cards and to aid this the last card in the set is usually a checklist of all cards. To encourage the continued purchase of cards many sets also include chase cards - special cards which are additional to the basic set but issued at a much lower frequency than the other cards. These cards often include special features to make them more desireable to collectors and it is not uncommon for there to be several chase card sets issued at varying frequencies so that some chase cards are rarer than others and some, even, that cannot be purchased (eg promotional items.)

The more recent trading card sets include work by Boris and his wife Julie Bell. My original intention had been to include only the Boris images, but I weakened… the girl is good! The cards by Julie Bell are noted (J) after the title. This site is a Boris Vallejo index so you will only find Julie cards included if there is also a Boris involvement in the set: there are no Julie-only sets here.

The images on these pages show, where possible, the artwork rather than scans of the actual cards. This means that the card may only show a portion of what is illustrated here because the original art does not, as is often the case, conform to the 7:5 format of the cards.
