Printed in 2020 but delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the MetaZoo Base Set Cryptid Nation Kickstarter was distributed in March 2021. This is why although the cards say 2020, PSA (Professional Sports Authentication) labels the cards as 2021.
In contrast to the Black Border Sample Cards and the 2020 Haloween promo card set that came before Kickstarter, the Base Set Kickstarter cards wield the iconic red borders of MetaZoo. However, Kickstarter cards were not the first red bordered MetaZoo cards. In late 2020, five red bordered Christmas holiday cards were distributed.
A humble 255 backers pledged $18,249 to help bring the MetaZoo Base Set Cryptid Nation Kickstarter project to life.
