Kayou is a Chinese card company that produces dozens of cards based on popular intellectual properties (IPs). These properties primarily include anime and cartoons, including Naruto, Ultraman, My Little Pony, DC and more. The company partners with more than 40 IPs to produce a wide range of trading cards with popular characters. In addition, Kayou’s original IP Kayou Sanguo trading card has been widely welcomed by card collectors since its launch in 2023. Since its founding in 2018, Kayou has expanded its sales channels and products to 31 provincial-level administrative regions across China.

During a recent on-site grading event in Shanghai, CGC Cards executives met with Kayou’s executive team. During the meeting, CGC Cards used due diligence to certify the authenticity of Kayou’s cards and their licensing agreements. Upon confirming their authenticity, CGC Cards and Kayou reached an agreement to become a Strategic Partner in China.

Since 1987, the CCG companies have certified more than 90 million collectibles, including coins, banknotes, comic books, cards, video games, home video, stamps and estate items.
