Hi!

All of the Newsies have trading cards, but characters such as Medda, Pulitzer, etc. don't have them.

How many are there?
18 I think...

How do you get them?
You get a set of 5 if you buy merchandise at the Nederlander Theatre. I'd imagine if you bought a whole lot of merchandise then you would get more. You can also ask for them at the stagedoor or write letters to the Newsies.

Who do you have to write to to get all of them??
You have to write the individual people who have them. So far within a month I have gotten cards (signed) back from Jeremy Jordan, Andrew Keenan Bolger, Kara Lindsay, Andy Richardson, and Aaron J Albano. Many other people will reply with their card as long as you send a SASE.

Hi! I found this tumblr thread that has 19 "Card Character Descriptions"
Would this be all of them? Do you get to pick which 5 you get when you buy something??

gstrus2: Oh then there's 19. Two for Les haha! They will ask you which Newsie you want if there is one in particular. I don't know if you get to choose all five.

PlayItAgain: Does that apply to everyone? :)

There are 22 official trading cards. However, now that Alex Wong has left the cast, they may be only out giving 21 (I really don't know). In addition to writing to each cast member, you could always write a general letter to the cast to receive some. However, to guarantee getting a certain card you should just write to that cast member.

At the theatre, you don't get to pick which 5 you get with each item bought. Oddly, if you buy 4 items, they will tell you you're getting the "full set" of 20, which is wrong since there are 22 trading cards. I don't know why they say that, but they do :/ Cast members also give out trading cards at the stage door.

By the way, although they are not the official trading cards, some of the cast members have cards they give out, including Medda... unless they've run out.

You think if I wrote to her, she would send me one?

^ I got a reply from her today and she sent a signed playbill. I dont know if she has cards left or sends them out. I assumed she didnt have a card when I wrote her, so I didnt mention it.

Very early in the run I sent SASE to everyone, along with individual notes in each. I got a handful of signed cards & notes and then after a month and half, I got sent an entire set, mostly unsigned but some main ones like Jeremy, Kara, Ben & Andrew signed.

The original male swings, Michael Fatica & Jack Scott, also have tradings which are the 2 in the 22 card set; their Newsie names are Knobs & Barney Peanuts, respectively. I would think that they're the hardest to get since many don't know who they are, unfortunately.

"

The "Medda" cards were created by a fan and given to Capathia Jenkins to hand out at the stage door. Because of that, I'm sure her supply was limited. As far as I could tell, only the "Newsies" + Kara Lindsay had official cards supplied by Disney. Fans of the other characters felt that was somewhat unfair, thus taking matters into their own hands. :) It doesn't hurt to ask. Could be some extras lying about.

I tweeted the actress who plays Medda, and she said if I send her a request for a card, with a SASE, she will send me one. :)

This is a pretty brilliant piece of marketing by Disney. They absolutely know their audience for this show.

When I took my sister to Newsies I bought her a Tshirt and program I made a joke about going "all out" for her first broadway show and the merch girl heard me, then handed my sister a complete set of trading cards because "a first broadway show is a momentous occasion!" So sweet!!

just so people are aware apparently only way to get cards now is by ordering your tickets through ticketmaster...

I was wondering if trading cards would be made for replacement cast members.... but if they are not giving them out at the theatre now, I would bet not.

I'm glad this thread was bumped because I couldn't find it.

I just wanted to thank the generous poster who sent out the cards to anyone who asked for only the cost of shipping.

(I don't want to mention their name because I don't think they are still offering to send them).

Ohh...that's strange. I got mine around 10ish, and I have all 22 offical cards. Maybe I just got lucky.

I went to the show on Monday and asked them about the cards. There are officially 22 of them, but they no longer print them, and they sold the majority of the ones they had at the flea market. They have no plans on reprinting them or making new ones for the people who have replaced the OBC. I bought an extra set of them at the flea market if anyone is interested.

Does anyone happen to have an extra trading card for Alex Wong (Sniper) or Matthew Schecter (Les)?

I bought a set from PlayItAgain and am just trying to complete it since there were duplicates and I didn't want to pay $20 more when I was at the theatre last week for just 2 cards. PM me please. :)

Btw, I just noticed this the other day, but is anyone else's Kyle Coffman card misprinted and say "Kyle Hoffman" on the back? Mine is.

The HENRY card I've got has 'Kyle Coffman' (not Hoffman) on the back, TheatreKid3...

I heard that Disney had some difficult with the "Henry" cards: first Kyle's name was misspelled, and then when they were reordered the color was slightly off and his were glossy on both sides and the others were glossy on only on the photo side. Third time was the charm I guess!

Bumping my question: anyone have a Sniper card or Les card (with Matthew)?? Really want to compelte the set! Thanks! :)
