Topps Has Launched a Walking Dead Digital Trading Card App
By Rudie Obias
The Topps Company and AMC have teamed up to launch a new digital trading card app called The Walking Dead: Card Trader, featuring scenes and characters from the hit zombie series The Walking Dead and its prequel, Fear the Walking Dead. Cards and trading card packs can be purchased with credits or by trading with other collectors through the app—both for other cards and “terrifying, never-before-seen content.”
To celebrate the launch, Topps is offering fans who install and register the app a new limited-edition digital card per day for the first seven days of its release and use. In addition, the trading card company will also be releasing a limited edition "Marathon Card," featuring the reflection of Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) on a bloody butcher’s knife.
If you’re not a fan of digital trading cards, Topps is also planning to release physical ones for both shows this fall. The Walking Dead: Complete Fifth Season trading card set, which will illustrate the survivors’ escape from Terminus, will be released in October, while a premium collector’s set, The Walking Dead: Survival Box, will be available in December.
The Walking Dead: Card Trader is free to download and available for Android and iOS devices.
