What are the card rarities?
There are 150 base cards, 25 foil embossed cards, and 25 refractor foil cards, and 8 limited edition cards.
Some of the cards can also come in orange, green, or gold parallel. These cards have a different outline compared to the base cards with black outlines. The pull rates are:
- Orange 1:6
- Green 1:18
- Gold: 1:36
What’s in Each Pack?
Each booster pack comes with 8 cards. In my experience, it seems like each pack comes with 1 foil and one embossed cards and a chance at a parallel.
All of the art is awesome. You have iconic character cards, but there’s also a lot of nostalgic highlights with multiple characters. Some of the panoramic cards, that make a picture when put together, look so dope.
Where Can I Get Naruto Panini Cards?
The product list below will break down all of the Hokage Collection Products. They’re in specific packaging. Make sure you don’t accidentally get one of the Panini sticker sets that look similar to the cards.
These come in many different products on the different Amazon markets. I like using Amazon France because shipping is pretty inexpensive and quick for me.
