HGA Grades Futera Cards

Established in 1989, Futera, a privately owned trading card publisher, has become a global player with a significant presence in Asia, Europe, Australasia, and the US. Operating from Southeast Asia with distribution hubs in the UK/Europe and Asia, Futera’s headquarters is based in Dubai.
Futera has made a mark in the trading card industry by producing collections that cover a diverse range of sports, including association football, auto racing (F1), baseball, basketball, boxing, cricket, cycling (Tour de France), horse racing, rugby, and surfing. Additionally, Futera offers non-sports cards, featuring TV and film entertainment series.
Over its 30-year history, Futera has secured Official Trading Card Licenses for prominent football clubs across Europe, such as FC Barcelona, PSG, Liverpool, and Arsenal. The company’s licenses extend to various sports entities, including Formula 1, Australian Cricket Board, World Cup Cricket, Australian National Basketball League (NBL), Australian Soccer, Australian Rugby Football Union, Tour de France, horseracing, World Surfing Federation, and Scandinavian Handball.
Futera’s commitment to diversity is evident not only in sports but also in its licensing agreements, covering stickers, phone cards, and confectionery. In 2000, Futera introduced ‘Total Football,’ a licensed confectionery line combining football cards from English Premier League and Championship Football Clubs with Chupa Chups lollipops.
Beyond sports, Futera has ventured into non-sport licenses, collaborating with notable brands and productions such as Mattel’s “Barbie,” BBC Television’s “Red Dwarf,” and the feature film “Chicken Run” with Universal Studios, Aardman Animations & Pathé. Futera’s multi-faceted approach and commitment to quality have positioned it as a prominent and innovative player in the global trading card market.
HGA Grades Panini Cards
Importance of Grading Your Panini Cards
Graded cards often have a higher resale value and are more sought after by serious collectors to display, invest, and sell. It doesn’t matter if it is for personal collection or you are selling your cards, the first step to upgrading your collection is to get it graded.

Importance of Grading Futera Cards

Grading is an important part to any collector who wants to preserve, protect, and authenticate their collection. Grading your cards gives you assurance and piece of mind of the following points.

Condition Determination

A card’s grade can significantly influence its market value. A mint condition card can fetch prices exponentially higher than its worn counterparts.


Grading ensures the card’s authenticity, protecting collectors from counterfeit cards. As well as being labeled with the detailed information about the cards set, release and variation.


Once graded, cards are sealed in a tamper-resistant, protective case, preserving their condition. Allowing you to display and show off your cards without fear of damage or wear.

Our Unique Label Designs Enhance Your Cards

HGA’s custom labels enhance graded Futera cards by offering a personalized and visually striking touch that complements the design aesthetics of Futera’s trading cards. The ability to tailor labels with custom designs and colors allows collectors to create a cohesive and unique presentation that resonates with the themes of the Futera cards. This level of customization not only adds an extra layer of visual appeal but also serves as a storytelling element, allowing collectors to highlight specific details or commemorate special moments associated with their Futera cards. As a result, the combination of Futera’s quality cards and HGA’s custom labels creates an individualized collector experience, fostering a deeper connection between the collector and their graded Futera cards.
