Mario Super Sluggers cards

From the Super Mario Wiki
The first eighteen "Level 1" cards featuring all twelve Team Captains and six Team Players.

To coincide with the North American release of Mario Super Sluggers in August 2008, an online card game was created on www.mariosupersluggerscards.com. The cards to collect for it were found on kid-friendly sites like 4KidsTV and Nick.com and even YouTube (mainly to promote the Mario Super Sluggers game itself). There was also a section that allowed users to chat with each other on the Tips & Talk section (using a forum's layout).

Materials on the main site itself included: cards of each character (not including characters' alternate colors), each captain's Star Swing and Star Pitch, each team, and the five default stadiums. Users were able to do many things with their cards, such as swapping them with other users, and it was also discovered that it was possible to clone cards by swapping with themselves and accepting the swap. Although the main procedure was to obtain the starting cards via banners at kid-friendly sites, people noticed that each card link had a five letter code and decided to save them for future reference. As users obtained more character profile cards, they were also able to choose icons of available Mario Super Sluggers characters. While on the site, Lakitu gave the users hints from time to time about their collections.

If a user completed their Mario Super Sluggers card collection, they were able to receive a poster download featuring Mario and all the cards that they had collected. The Mario Super Sluggers card game has ended, and the site is no longer up.

Below is a list of the cards, categorized by their respective levels.

Level 1 cards (character profiles)[edit]

Level 1 cards included the forty-one characters in the game. Alternate colors, such as Red Yoshi, Green Noki, and Mii were not included.

Rookie Year errors[edit]

The Rookie Years are meant to refer to when the game he or she first appeared in was released in North America. Some of the characters' Rookie Years are incorrect:

  • Luigi's Rookie Year is listed as 1982, but the game Mario Bros. that he was introduced in was not released until 1983.
  • Princess Daisy's Rookie Year is listed as 1990, but the game Super Mario Land that she first appeared in was released in 1989. 1990 refers to the PAL release of her debut game.
  • Funky Kong's Rookie Year is listed as 1999, but the game Donkey Kong Country that he first appeared in was released in 1994. 1999 refers to Donkey Kong 64 (which Tiny Kong first appeared in, thus her Rookie Year is correct).
