Downton Abbey Trading Cards Coming from Cryptozoic

Downton Abbey Trading Cards Coming from Cryptozoic

Downton Abbey, one of the highest rated and critically acclaimed shows on PBS, is getting its own set of trading cards. Cryptozoic has acquired the rights to make both cards and binders for the series.

The show's third season just kicked off in the United States, netting nearly 8 million viewers. The show has a large cast of respected actors, including Hugh Bonneville and Maggie Smith. Should Cryptozoic opt for costume cards, the lavish clothes could make for some very nice pieces. Most importantly, Downton Abbey trading cards have the chance to open up the market to a lot of people who might traditionally be non-collectors.

Cryptozoic is aiming for a fall release for the first Downton Abbey trading cards.

Although rare, period dramas have been converted into trading card sets in the past. Breygent made a box set for The Tudors in 2011, complete autographs, costume cards and prop cards.

No further details have been provided other than Cryptozoic landing the property from Knockout Licensing. Stay tuned for more on Downton Abbey trading cards as information is released.

Ryan's collecting origins began with winter bike rides to the corner store, tossing a couple of quarters onto the counter and peddling home with a couple packs of O-Pee-Chee hockey in his pocket. Today, he continues to build sets, go after inserts with cool technologies, chase Montreal Expos and finish off his John Jaha master collection. Ryan can be found on Twitter @tradercracks and Google+.
