I have always loved cardback, and the art and design are incredible. I have collected in-game cardback since the beginning missing only the tournament one in-game.
So when I discovered that some of the 250+ cardback were replicated as a pin, I had to collect them. I went as far as to create a copy of the golden celebration because I couldn't find it. After 3 years, I acquired all of them, so I am proud to share my collection with a little explanation
of where these pins are coming from. Out of the 20 pins produced, nine were available on the blizzard store, four were given away at an event or fireside gatherings, 3 were prices for tournaments, two were exclusive for streamers and influencers, and 2 were made and sold on partner's websites.
