Anybody see this, looks very interesting. I like the idea of getting some return on your investment with the share cards

Or you could just skip the cards and buy stock shares. Big Grin

It seems informational in nature, like flash cards. The share card hit has rules. Haven't heard of this one before.

It is interesting, although they don't really seem to be focused on the cards at all -- at least I can't really find much information about the cards, or even a picture of the back of the card.

There are 3 10 card packs in the box, and the set is 30 cards, but it is unclear if the box contains a complete set.

Thanks for sharing.

Actually, I thought it was 3 packs with 10 cards each as well. So just to be sure, I sent the company an email to confirm and it turns out that there are only 11 total cards (10 base + 1 hit) in each box! It’s a cool concept, but waaaay to pricey for what you get (from a trading card viewpoint).

Whoa, that's confusing. . .

Thanks for asking and sharing. . .

So in a box you get 3 packs. 10 total base cards, and 1 share card. It is unclear if the share card is in a pack. . . but either way neither 10 nor 11 divide evenly by 3 so you are not going to have consistent numbers of base cards in the packs.

Does anyone understand the share odds. . . for example:

MCDONALDS 5-1
FACEBOOK 1-130

Maybe they are just inconsistent, but they way I read this is that for every pack you get 5 shares of McDs and a 1:130 chance at Facebook.

Admittedly I'm not that familiar with odds written this way so maybe not, but a quick google search wasn't helpful.

I couldn't understand the website about the share hit either, but I didn't want to make inquiries because I wasn't seriously considering buying. There are rules about that share hit and it seems like you can redeem it for a gift card or you have to go to another exchange. Its not that easy to transfer stock since the days when you actually got paper certificates in you hand and didn't have to deal with a broker.

For the record McDonald's is priced at $230 per share and Facebook is $306 per share right now.

Remember, this is a 2020 set. The example of the share card on their site says that it expires on 06-01-21, so in about 2 weeks.

You are correct, should have noticed that first. Big Grin If that's how it stays, kind of puts an end to the product, whatever it was. Wink
