Hobby Knowledge

  • The card rarity does not NECESSARILY refer to the scarcity of the skin/card. As far as we have seen the BASE card print run IS based on the skins rarity: Uncommon, Rare, Epic, and Legendary. The Parallels DON’T follow the same rules. There has been no evidence showing that skin/card rarity designation applies to the print run of parallels like holos, shards, and etc. 
  • Each Series besides Reloaded has included a “Promo Set” of 10 Crystal Shard/Cracked Ice cards. These cards appear to have a larger print run than the other Crystal Shards in released in their respective sets. There are no Base, Holo, or Optichrome versions of the skins released in the Promo Sets. 
  • There are three different “prints” of fortnite cards. The prints are designated by the country they were printed in. For S1 there are USA, Italy, & Brazil cards. For S2 & S3 there are USA and Italy printed cards. Reloaded was only produced in Italy but the back of the card doesn’t mention where they were printed just that the IP belongs to Epic Games a USA company. As of this writing USA cards are more sought after and possibly have lower print runs.
  • Prototypes of S1 have been found in both USA versions and Italy versions. These prototypes are mostly base cards but some of the prototypes are cards that were never released such as Renegade Raider. Very few of these have been found and are known to exist. Please check out the Fringe Collectibles Page for more information.
