Hi ragstoriches! I've never 'creating' new Trading Cards, even I love them so much. I just collecting and bought them from our 'Indonesian Toy Seller'. That trading cards was a 'fake' one! May be they 'made-in china'.
In my country (Indonesia) we have a lot of 'real' Trading Cards (imported) such as : Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh, Magic The Gathering, WWF, etc. But that so 'expensive' for some of our kids / young people.
So we gratefully with this 'fake-Trading Cards',so cheap, almost every kids able to buy this.
In Indonesia we have our 'Indonesian Trading Cards', visit here : http://www.gamequarters.net/?p=10987
In my opinion, we must registered our Trading Cards to some 'official government". Good Luck!
