Series: Dragonball GT
Main distribution: Europe
These are trading cards from Dragonball GT by Panini. This is Serie 1. The series exists out of 100 cards.
Panini is an Italian company headquartered in Modena, Italy, named after the Panini brothers who founded it in 1961. Mostly known for its collectable stickers and cards, they also produce books, comics, magazines and other items through its collectibles and publishing subsidiaries.
Here I’ll show my Dragonball GT Serie 1.
The cards are recognisable as having a black border, with the Dragonball GT logo on a corner.
The backs feature an orange landscape with Dragonballs, 2 small close-up shots from the image on the front, accompanied with some (Italian) text, Dragonball GT, Serie 1, Panini and the card number in the corner.
They came in packs of 6. The packaging features Pan, Goku, Trunks and Gill with Baby Vegeta in the background.
I got 82/100.
Alongside the Artbox series these Panini series started to appear in my local shops at the time. Because they were Dragonball GT and Italian (and therefor foreign to us), they were less desirable. For some reason Serie 2 was also available before Serie 1 where I lived.
Serie 2 was everywhere at the time, whereas Serie 1 seemed a bit rarer because of this. Most of these I got fresh from packs. Not many people had these or wanted to trade them. This is why most of my cards are in good knick though.
Although I tried to get the full set, I never managed. Maybe one day I get to finish it.
I still have some doubles left if anyone wants to trade or buy (59 and 96)?
Got any more details / information you think I should add? Or did I get something wrong? Do you own any of these cards? Or do you have the full set? Would you like to trade any? Do you agree or disagree with my findings? Let me know in the comments below!
