Total Cards Released Orange County and Los Angeles

Total Cards Released Orange County and Los Angeles

Postby Voyajer » Sat May 04, 2013 3:22 pm

I wrote to Buckscards.com to ask why they aren't posting the total released for each city. It is an easy formula. Multiply a box of 25 by how many the total number of boxes there are which is printed on the box. For Orange County, the box says: xxx of 1,728. That makes the release a total of 43,200 cards. Now you can compare to other cities. I've only seen the 2012 Los Angeles box and it says: xxx of 6,720. That makes the 2012 release in Los Angeles a total of 168,000 cards. This is information collector's need to know. The Orange County card is more rare. There are greater than 350 percent more Los Angeles cards in circulation than Orange County cards. Does anyone else have a city's release box for other cities? Does anyone know where this information is public?

Fantastic information, and usually only obtainable via the manufacturer or the purchasing dept of Starbucks. I encourage others to post this information and I will edit the gallery entries to permanently reflect these quantities! Great job!

Is the Orange County you're referring to the San Diego card?

The Orange County card was just released last Tuesday, April 30 and is available on eBay. "Orange County" This is the first (1st) Starbucks Card for Orange County (the OC), California; released exclusively to the OC area April 2013. It features the ocean, a surfboard in the foreground, a silhouetted lifeguard tower and surfer in the background with umbrellas and hints of sunglare.

Thanks - saw your auction! If you have the time, can you upload the front/back scan to the gallery? If you can't do it, you can always email the scans directly to me at giftcardcollector@giftcardcollector.com. Again, thanks for the info!

I just spotted a listing for a box of the 2013 Washington DC cards. It indicates that just 1,152 boxes (28,800 cards) were released. Item number 161023634854.

More news: this same quantity of 1,152 boxes got released for the City by the Bay San Francisco cards. Item number 151042833770.

I just saw the 2013 Happy Father's Day card release. The box said xxxx of 51550. That makes 1,288,750 cards. One can readily see how limited the city editions of the cards are compared to the nationwide cards.
