Set of Virva Peikko Metal Trading Cards

The set of metal trading cards made as a Rapture Horror Expo 2013 exclusive are now available online! The cards feature Virva Peikko as a zombie chewing on a Flatwoods vinyl toy by KiLL!. Each card is individually signed and numbered. The set includes the silver, white, and super limited gold variant card, which is only available in this set of 3. Only 20 silver, 10 white, and 5 gold cards were made. To pick up a set for $15, visit http://virvapeikko.storenvy.com.

Individual silver and white cards are also available for $5 each.

Unfortunately, the photos don't do the cards justice: they have a beautiful metallic sheen that is incredibly hard to photograph. All cards ship sleeved and in individual top loaders. Don't miss out!
