2000 Series     2001 Series     2002 Series     2008 Series

Beginning in 1994 and continuing to around 2010, Pleasant Company produced several series of trading cards featuring all of the historical girls. They featured only cards from 1994-2001, and in 
2002 stickers were introduced. The illustrations on the cards came from the various story books 
and short story books for each girl. These cards came in card packs containing 10 cards.

2000 Series - 30 Cards

Beginning in 2000, new trading card packs came out which included 10 cards featuring 1994 Series Molly, Kirsten and Felicity cards; 1998 Series Samantha, Addy and Josefina cards and 2000 Series Kit cards, which were cards #1-30 with no checklist. The 2000 Series was Kit's first card set. Kit's 200o Series are very hard to find today since they were only sold for two years, and no boxed sets featuring Kit were ever made. Due to their rarity Kit's 2000 Series are the second most hard to find AG card series today.

2001 Series - 30 Cards

The next year, 2001, card packs included the same cards as in 2000 with the addition of Kit's Series 2001 cards. The 2001 Series were cards #31-60, with #60 being a checklist of all 60 cards. The 2001 Series was Kit's second card set. Kit's 2001 Series are the very hard to find today since they were only sold for one year, and no boxed sets featuring Kit were ever made.

By far, Kit's 2001 Series are the most hard to find AG card series today due to their rarity.
