ARGENTINA









Two Basuritas sets were released throughout Argentina in the early 1990's.  The cards measure slightly smaller than 2 1/2 X 3 1/2 inches; the size of the U.S. cards. The 1st Series cards are die-cut and the 2nd Series cards are non die-cut; peeling from the edges.

In 2000, the Industria Argentina Co. manufactured a new set of Basuritas titled 'Basuritas and Monsters'. The set covers several cards from the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th,  5th, 6th and 8th U.S. Series sets, not in any particular order plus some original artwork found in no other series.  The cards measure 2 1/4 X  2 3/4 inches, and are non-die cut stickers.  The Argentina set is a direct reproduction of the Chile cards and have a great gloss finish with a new red border as well as a chase card set and holochrome chase card set that measure 2 1/2 X 3 1/2 inches.  In 2001, this red-bordered set was re-released twice with minor changes and additions to the sets minus the chase cards. In 2003, a new Basuritas set titled 'Basuritas 2' was released with a yellow border and in 2004 a 'Basuritas 3' was released.
