Traverse poetry trading cards are a mixture of contemporary and long-loved poems. Our rare poets include renown contemporary poets Susan Wicks and Pascale Petit, and literary giant John Keats.

The Rare cards

If you’re very lucky, you might find a rare Traverse card when you open your pack. These are specially finished cards in lacquer or gold foil. If you get one, add it quickly to your collection or, if you’re incredibly lucky and get the same poem twice, find a friend to swap with!
