This article takes a look at the cards most likely to be the Fusion Strike Chase Cards.
What are Chase Cards?
Chase cards are rare cards that have a 1/100 or less chance of being inside a booster pack. They are often one of the ultra rare or secret rare cards from an expansion set. If there is a full art Charizard in a set it is highly likely to be a Chase card but in sets without a Charizard card it is more a case of the cards that hold the most appeal due to their artwork, their rarity or their value.
The Fusion Strike set contains a total of 284 cards – the largest set to date. Of those 20 are Secret Rare cards.
