Star Card Season 2.5 Guide and Review
So to start this off since I’ve already got my Season 2.5 Cards
The sets and parks are the same as for Season 1 and 2, where each set has 15 packs, and each pack has 5 collection cards and 1 bingo card.
And so with 153 cards to collect…
In each pack there are:
4 x Base/Regular cards (109-144)
1 x “Rare” card (001-108 & 145-153)
1 x Bingo card
Based on what I’ve got, in each set you can expect to find (assuming that you don’t get any of the actual autographed cards):
60 x Base/Regular cards
7 x Foil cards
4 x Holo cards
3 x Matt cards
1 x Micro cards
Breaking that down further, of the foil cards, on average, 3 will be the foil autograph cards, 4 the Gee foil cards. So you’ll be looking at getting at least 3 sets to get a full collection of the foil autograph cards. For the matte cards, you can expect roughly a 50/50 split in the number for each type (Oh! Lyrics bg and ‘Selca’) in a set and probably get a minimum of 6 sets to get the all 18 matte cards.
The foil cards are include the printed autographed cards (001-009) and the Gee calendar and Gee individual cards from Season 2. There aren’t any differences between the Gee cards, except that the colours in Season 2.5 seem a little paler as the card itself has less of a shine to it due to a matte finish.
The micro cards are exactly the same as in Season 2. The holo cards are no different in the pictures used, merely instead of checks (037-087 & 100-108) and foils (064-075) they are holos.
As for the matte cards, in terms of thickness, they don’t feel any different. The pictures of the girls appear to be slightly raised and have more of a glossy finish to them as opposed to the background which is what I’d consider to be matte (non glossy finish).
And in comparing the three seasons so far, I still reckon that Season 1 has been the most satisfying, and that Season 2.5 is the true Season 2 especially with the base cards looking THAT much better.
