A new trading card series has recently launched, and it’ll help support independent concert venues still reeling from the ongoing pandemic – including a couple in the Philly area.

Phantasy Cards has partnered with the National Independent Venue Association (NIVA) for a new trading card series highlighting 54 different indie venues across the United States. The cards come in packs of nine cards and cost $10/pack or you can buy a 16-pack of cards for $150.

Phantasy Cards notes, “Proceeds from sales of the Venue Series support NIVA and its mission to preserve and nurture the ecosystem of independent venues and promoters throughout the United States.”

To purchase packs of NIVA Venue Cards, head over to Merch.PhantasyTour.com.
