The New DC “Selfie Moments” Limited-Edition Hybrid Collection is Available for Pre-Order Today at Shop.Hro.gg

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Cartamundi Group, the worldwide leader in playing cards, and Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products are proud to announce a new limited-edition collection of DC Hybrid Trading Cards by Hro: DC “Selfie Moments.” The 19-card set showcases designs that hail from DC’s “The New 52” line of comic books and feature artwork from a fun series of variant covers that appear to be taken from a character’s “selfie” POV!


The DC “Selfie Moments” limited-edition hybrid collection marks the second limited-edition hybrid collection of the year for the brand, with the first drop launching during San Diego Comic-Con in July. What’s unique about this release, though, is that the fans who can’t make it to New York for New York Comic Con will actually have a “first look” opportunity to snag some packs on shop.hro.gg before the rest of the boxes hit the convention room floor. These pre-orders will begin at 12:00pm EDT today, and the remaining supply will be available for purchase at NYCC at the Hro Booth (#1157) from Thursday, October 12 through Sunday, October 15.

“We are so excited to bring our newest limited-edition hybrid trading cards collection to New York Comic Con,” says John Louie, Global Head of Hro. “DC ‘Selfie Moments’ is our most playful collection yet, giving DC fans something special to smile about!”

Plus, for some bonus fun, the DC “Selfie Moments” box assortment is randomized, opening up an extra adventure for any collectors who want to display both The Joker and Harley Quinn editions of the boxes as a part of their physical collections (especially for those pre-ordering online who won’t know what they’re getting until the shipment arrives!).

While most of the DC “Selfie Moments” limited-edition hybrid trading cards will be in Hro’s traditional sizing (2.4 x 3.5in), the company is also excited to announce the return of the Mega Card, which clocks in at about 3.46 x 4.96in and features an incredible shot of Lex Luthor alongside the Justice League. Plus, this Epic-tier design unlocks a bonus set of digital trading cards on top of the hybrid packs so fans can continue their collecting adventure within the Hro mobile app as they discover bonus crafting opportunities and special rewards.

More information about the collection can be found on the Hro blog: blog.hro.gg

How to Join the Hro Community

DC Hybrid Trading Cards by Hro allow fans to collect designs showcasing iconic art from DC’s comic book history, including fan-favorite characters like Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and so many more. On the back of each physical trading card is a QR code that connects it to its digital “twin” on the Hro mobile app, which is validated and backed up by the security of blockchain technology. Once the physical and digital twins are linked, the Hro mobile app and web platform then give buyers access to a global marketplace to buy, sell, and trade their way to a complete collection. This innovative model also plays host to a 360° fan engagement platform where users can compete to uncover the rarest cards, rise to the top of community leaderboards, and unlock the chance to be eligible to receive special rewards.
