collectibles: MINI Test Drive Takedown trading cards

MINI Test Drive Takedown trading cards

Earlier this month we wrote about the MINI Test Drive Takedown spring campaign.  Going on at MINI dealerships through May 26, car shoppers can test drive MINI models against several competitors.  MINI USA has created six “characters” for each of the six models.  As part of the campaign, they have produced a pack of six MINI Test Drive Takedown trading cards.

  • Full Tank Nelson – 2012 MINI Cooper S Hardtop
  • Boom Boom BiggerBoot – 2012 MINI Cooper Clubman
  • Doctor Roofless – 2012 MINI Cooper S Roadster
  • Snowy Roades – 2012 MINI Cooper S Countryman ALL4
  • Sunny Weathers – 2012 MINI Cooper Convertible
  • The Overtaker – 2012 MINI John Cooper Works Coupe

The Overtaker is the one card that changed model from the MINI USA website going from a MINI Cooper S Coupe to a MINI John Cooper Works Coupe.

See the list of MINI Test Drive Takedown dealer events and pick up a pack of collectible trading cards.

YOU KNOW THOSE PEOPLE?
Those people who keep a journal? Who play in a garage band? Who collect vintage cameras? Who need more than an hour to tell about their weekend? Who aren’t truckers but eat at truck stops? Who are always saying, “I know this cool place…?” Who still play hooky once in a while? Who don’t always have time for TV? Who could talk you into a road trip? Tonight? You know those people?
Could you give them one of these?
We think they’d like us.

Previously we featured the John Cooper Works card game, a JCW accessories “brochure” in the form of a deck of playing cards.

Today we have another playing card deck “brochure”: the Fussgängerzonen Stars MINI Collection cards from Germany.  The “Super Quartett” card game is also the MINI Collection 2004 catalog.

The 33 card deck (32 playing cards plus one instruction card) came in a clear plastic case.  One the back of each card is the slogan “IT’S NOT A CAR.”.  The front features a different item from the MINI Collection.  The object of the game is to collect sets of four cards A1-A4 through H1-H4.
