CNHCARD was founded in March 2016 by a group of veterans in the sports and media industry, including current CSL player, Yu Hanchao from Guangzhou Evergrande FC. The company’s profile on its official website shows that it is dedicated to developing, manufacturing and selling trading cards for sports events, clubs and sports stars and aims to be the No. 1 Chinese brand for trading cards.
