A Preview of Panini America's Dragon Ball Z Collectible Card Game!


The return of Dragon Ball Z Collectible Card Game is less than three weeks away! Dragon Ball Z fans are excited for their favorite trading card game to make a comeback. Players new and old are gearing up for the greatest comeback since Brett Favre's comeback in 2009 with the Minnesota Vikings. Goku, Gohan Krillin, Piccolo, and Future Trunks are the first five heroes to return as main personalities. Captain Ginyu, Frieza, and Vegeta are the first three villains to return as main personalities.
