Aluminum foil wrapper that held 13 RockCard trading cards. Front of package rin non-holographic print reads `ROCKCARDS series one', and `Excellent Rock Music Trading Cards.' Back shows the contents of the package (13 photo cards [288 different cards in all], 1 peel and stick art card [18 in all], and randomly inserted logo holograms [9 in all]) and rules for a contest. The holographic aspect of the wrapper shows the word `ROCKCARDS' and individual letters from that word repeated many times, on both sides of the wrapper. Surprisingly good 3-D depth effect.

Please note that due to the unique challenges of holography as a medium, high-resolution digital images are not available for most items in the holography collection. Please contact us for more information on reproducing images of holograms.
