Upper Deck Cardzillion Cards

Shortly after announcing their global strategic alliance in August 1996, Bandai America teamed up with Upper Deck to release four series of sports trading cards via CardZillion Vending Machines, each based on one of Upper Deck’s “Collector’s Choice” series.

These hybrid cards shared some of the usual Cardzillion card qualities (obtained via a Card Vending Machine for a quarter, smaller-than-traditional trading cards in size, etc.) but differed in others (48 cards per series, no rounded corners, etc.).

Bandai America’s partnership with Upper Deck would later produce the Power Rangers Turbo series.
