Acquisitions Incorporated Trading Cards

Acquisitions Incorporated® Trading Cards™ are another ingenious invention of Ominifis Hereward Dran, designed to both promote and capitalize on the popularity of the brand. Cards can be found in possession of children, speculators and a few hard-core adult collectors across the realms.

Cards come with artwork of the Acq Inc employee and a short biography. Some cards have alternative art and/or a foiled ‘shiny’ appearance which increases the rarity and value.
