The Art Hustle has hosted two independent trading card conventions in NYC alongside partners Suckadelic and SideKick Media, and has been represented at the San Diego Comic Con and New York Comic Con. Event exclusive cards were available at several of these events (see below). Stay connected with The Art Hustle for announcements of future events and related happenings.
DKE Toys hosted a scavenger hunt at the San Diego Comic Con. All who persevered and completed the difficult quest became owners of this rare set of signed and stamped "SDCC" Comic Con exclusives, and an exclusive and rare signed Travis Louie profile card (only available in Series 1 Factory Sets).
Series 1 profile cards in this scavenger hunt include (clockwise above): Tara McPherson, Frank Kozik, Buff Monster, Travis Louie, Alex Pardee and Ron English.
This special stamped Travis Louie (variant) NYCC Comic Con card was brought to you by Tenacious Toys. If you purchased one wax pack of The Art Hustle, you received this exclusive card.
