Star Wars: Card Trader is one of our sources of information for Canon articles. As such, many of our Canon articles list Card Trader in the Sources list. Recently, we've begun listing Card Trader by individual card like we do for all other card sets, which ideally will include linking to images of Card Trader cards.

The problem we face with Card Trader is that it's a digital app, which means all of its data will be permanently lost the moment Topps decides to discontinue it. To this end, AV-6R7, Ayrehead02, and I have begun a project to create a permanent reference database for these Card Trader cards. This database can be found on the Star Wars: Card Trader Wiki. Our basic goal is to capture screengrabs (both front and back) of any card with text on the back.

The bad news is that there are literally something like 40,000 cards on this app, with new ones being released every single day. The good news is very few of these cards have data on the back, and the app stopped releasing these data cards after 2015 (I believe), so this project is finite. The other non-data cards from this app are mostly just stylized artwork with no text or are otherwise just digital reissues of Topps' other concurrent physical card sets, all of which we can just ignore, because it's simply impractical to be listing 10,000 different artwork cards in Sources lists.

So to narrow down our focus with this project, this is what we need to be listing in Canon articles' Sources lists from Star Wars: Card Trader:

  • Any cards with data on the back (which we believe is relegated to just the "2015 Edition" cards) or cards with other unique textual canon information, such as new character names in the card title.
  • Any cards with unique film promotional images not yet released in any other Canon source; example, list the Card Trader card that was the first to show this Leesub Sirlin promo image.
    • We can disregard:
      • Multi-color parallel sets. For example, the 2015 Edition cards have Yellow, White, Red, Green, Blue, etc. parallels, which are all exactly the same card just with different colored borders. We only need to list the card once in Sources lists, and we'll be taking screengrabs of the first-issued card, White, for the database.
      • Legends. Some of these cards actually contained Legends references, which we just disregard for Canon articles, but our database will still be taking screengrabs of all 2015 Edition cards for archival purposes.
      • Non-exclusives. As stated above, Card Trader reissues digital editions of cards from Topps' other concurrent physical sets. Although these physical sets should be listed in Canon Sources lists, they don't need to be relisted from Card Trader. However, the database may still take screengrabs of these cards for their digital quality as the need arises.
  • Individual cards from Card Trader should be listed using the {{Topps}} template. Note that there is also a physical Star Wars: Card Trader set released in 2016 with no current documentation on Wookieepedia, which we will also need to work on at some point.

The database itself will accept any screengrab image from any card included in Star Wars: Card Trader, because it will be beneficial to have an archive of these cards. But realistically, we're probably never going to create a complete archive of all 40,000+ cards from this app, which is why our focus is on those cards with textual data.

If you want to help with this database project, this is what you can do. Our current checklist of objectives includes:

  • Create a complete checklist of all 2015 Edition cards. This checklist can be hosted on this SH page, where we can cross them off as we upload card images.
  • Take screengrabs of these 2015 Edition cards (both front and back of card) and upload these images to the SWTC Wiki. The primary focus should be on getting the 2015 Edition White parallel cards, as explained above, as these card images are what we will be linking to from our Sources lists.
  • Create an article for each 2015 Edition card on SWTC Wiki, which is where these images will be hosted

DiscussionEdit

  • Sounds good, I could help with some of that. Also there're some cards from 2015 series that were exclusive to a certain color, so they might have information on them. For example the a Padmé Amidala red base card--DarthRuiz30 (talk) 21:20, September 10, 2017 (UTC)
    • Sure thing. Anything that is exclusive to a certain color should be uploaded and linked to the same way we will for the Yellow Silver White set. Ideally, we'll have an archive of all color cards from the 2015 Edition anyway. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 21:22, September 10, 2017 (UTC)
      • DarthRuiz do you know any other cards unique to only one colour? I've managed to find that the ROTS Yoda is red exclusive as well but am fairly certain there's at least one more red exclusive card. Unsigned comment by Ayrehead02 (talk • contribs).
        • Its the Nute Gunray that was just added to the list--DarthRuiz30 (talk) 23:11, September 10, 2017 (UTC)
          • Yeah, we just figured this out as well. - Imperial Information Office AV-6R7Crew Pit 23:12, September 10, 2017 (UTC)
  • Sounds like this will be difficult with the new Crystals Paywall, no? I have a number of screen grabs across several computers, but what kind of image size dimensions are you looking for? If I'm not mistaken, different devices produce different resolutions/sizes for the cards. --Clonehunter(Report your W.M.D.) 21:33, September 10, 2017 (UTC)
    • I'm not sure what the situation is with the Crystals Paywall, but I believe you can still view all cards on the app even if you can't obtain them for your personal collection. For image sizes, I guess just get the highest resolution you can. Bigger is always better for images. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 21:58, September 10, 2017 (UTC)
      • You can view the cards you don't have, but they added a new "feature" where the image is darkened a bit if you don't actually have the card. I saved one of them with the intent to see if maybe I can bring back the color to what it should be. Probably just a simple levels adjustment. However, it is annoying that they decided to dark-out the images like that. --Clonehunter(Report your W.M.D.) 22:38, September 10, 2017 (UTC)
        • Yeah, I think you can use the autofix feature on iOS to fix this. - Imperial Information Office AV-6R7Crew Pit 22:41, September 10, 2017 (UTC)
          • Actually, it appears locked cards also have a very feint spot pattern, which I doubt can be removed easily, if it all. --Clonehunter(Report your W.M.D.) 17:01, October 28, 2017 (UTC)
  • Fair warning to everyone already making edits, I've asked that a bot go through and remove card trader from all sources sections today since it no longer needs to be on the majority of pages it's listed on and we're going to need to go through and re-add the template to any that should have it anyway. I'd therefore advise that people hold off on adding the template and instead focus on adding images to the card trader wiki or identifying cards outside of the 2015 edition set that will need preserving because of a 1stID or image. Ayrehead02 (talk) 07:22, September 11, 2017 (UTC)
    • why not temporarily remove the link from the template. So the progress made until now is conserved and meanwhile they remove the general link. We continue adding the images to the SWCT wiki?--DarthRuiz30 (talk) 07:48, September 11, 2017 (UTC)
  • While I was searching for high-quality Force Collection images for the Force Collection project, I had discovered this guy on Twitter who shares both Force Collection and Card Trader cards. He had 40 high-quality CT images in total, so I've uploaded them all to the Card Trader Wiki, but didn't add them to any article since I'm not familiar with the app. I thought maybe someone would like to use them.
