If you missed out on the first season of Outlander Trading Cards by Cryptozoic, here is your chance to get in on the action for season two of the trading cards. The second season of cards will be released in July and will again have the same features as the first season, most exciting again are the autograph and wardrobe cards.
The autographs for season two have been slowly rolling in and George Nadeau of Cryptozoic has been sharing them as they come in. The company does not release that autographs from a certain actor will be included until they arrive back at their office. The details on the wardrobe cards have not been released yet.
I splurged a bit and bought one box of the season one trading cards and ended up with Sam Heughan autograph and a Nell Hudson/Laoghaire wardrobe card. So in other words, I was happy with my purchase.

Only purchasing a sealed box of cards guarantees that you will receive one autograph card and one wardrobe card. Purchasing packs is always an option, but that does not mean you will get any of the special cards.

Packs: 5 Cards per pack*, 24 packs per box**
*should you receive a wardrobe card in your pack you will only receive one regular card and one wardrobe card in that pack for a total of two cards.
**in trading card lingo a “box” can also be referred to as a “hobby box”

There are some excellent Facebook groups that are geared toward trading cards or selling them (and there is always ebay).
Here are authorized places to pre-order season two trading cards. If you are looking to get in the game for season one trading cards, it is a little too late and you will probably have to buy cards off of ebay.
Here are some of the autograph cards to be expected in a box of cards for season two:
