All I want for Christmas are these kitschy VC trading cards

Posted On: Nov 9, 2018   |   Posted By: TechCrunch

Just kidding. Please don't buy me these collectible trading cards featuring Silicon Valley venture capitalists for Christmas. But if you are in the market for a gift for a VC - or aspiring VC - they'd probably appreciate a set.

Yes, they really exist! TouchBase is selling a line of the VC trading cards, featuring Y Combinator co-founder Paul Graham, Andreessen Horowitz co-founder Marc Andreessen, Kleiner Perkins partner Mary Meeker and Benchmark general partner Bill Gurley.
Someone may want to tell TouchBase that Meeker is leaving Kleiner to start her own fund.
A pack of five cards will cost you $60. Each pack, the company writes, comes with a mix of late-stage VCs, angel and seed investors, as well as an advisor or two.
TouchBase doesn't say who else is featured on the cards, so you'll have to buy a pack, or two, or three to find out.
The cards begin shipping this month.
