So as you may have noticed, FM13 now has the virtual trading cards.

On top of that, we’re also pleased to introduce Steam Trading Cards to FM. Not heard of Steam Trading Cards? Well, they are collectible virtual cards you get by playing games on Steam (tied to the amount of time you play games on Steam). Collect a set of cards to earn items that help you customise your profile and show off your gameplay.

As you play, you'll occasionally receive trading card drops which will be placed in your Steam Inventory.

Here’s what you can earn:

  • A selection of random emoticons item (6 available) created for this game, that can use in chat or discussions
  • A selection of random profile backgrounds (6 available) created for this game, that you can use on your Steam Community profile
  • A chance to get a discount coupon for a different game or DLC
  • Opportunities to craft unique FM badges (by completing a full set of trading cards) – 5 badges, 1 foil badge
  • 100XP, which may increase your Steam Level

There’s a full FAQ available on the Steam website here.


You can get 3 (random) cards as drops but if you want to complete the set you're gonna have to trade for them.
Is there any point to them? (i.e do you get anything for getting them all?)

I was abit confused when it randomly said I had got a scissor kick :S
