The England and Wales Cricket Board (EWCB) has licensed Tap’N’Play Cricket Pty Ltd to release the Official 2018 England Cricket trading cards in the UK.

The release is a mainstream collectable cricket card series with 227 cards to collect and represents the first time women’s sport has featured prominently in a UK sports card release.

The cards showcase players in the England Test, Lions, ODI, T20 and Women’s squads.

The limited edition nature of the packs mean retailers will only receive two retail boxes.

Neil Armstrong, md for Tap’N’Play, said: “The back to back events of the ICC Cricket World Cup and the 2019 Ashes are an exciting time for the UK and we look forward to providing something special for both of these major events.

“Tap’N’Play includes women athletes in every single release. Our Australian Football series showcases the national women’s team and our New Zealand Rugby series features both the Black Fern Sevens and Fifteen teams. This year our Big Bash League (BBL) Cricket sets will feature 40% women. We are leading the way for other companies to provide gender balance in Trading Card collecting.”

Tap’N’Play’s limited edition Official 2018 England Cricket Trading Cards will be available from July 24, priced at £1.50 per pack.

  • Pathetic, why only 2 boxes per store, surely impossible to collect!, just a field day for the usual thugs to buy up and sell on ebay for mega bucks, thanks but NO THANKS!
