The first expansion in Paizo's GameMastery™ Item Cards line, Hero's Hoard contains 110 playing-card–sized cards to help GMs track important treasures. Each card features a beautiful full-color illustration of an item (weapon, armor, wondrous item, etc.) on one side, with a text description and room for notes on the opposite side. A GM can hand these out when their PCs get treasure and watch as players learn to love managing their booty. A code on each card helps GMs track which card corresponds to which treasure.
Useable by experienced GMs and novices alike, this product fits perfectly into any GameMaster’s arsenal.
Hero's Hoard booster packs contain:
1 armor (cards 01–15)
2 weapons (16–39)
2 potions (40–57)
1 scroll (63–72)
1 wand (79–88)
2 wondrous items (89–110)
1 ring (58–62) or 1 rod or staff (73–78)
1 foil card, which may be any card from the set.
Display boxes contain 12 booster packs.
Complete sets include a complete set of the foils along with a complete set of the non-foil cards. In addition, there are duplicates of some of the non-foil cards.

After i bought nearly all available cardboxes i'm really not happy about a thing: I dont know how many cards i have now in total... must be over 1000. And there are only 4 different helms but plenty of hats, masks and usless things like pig leg, withered hands or shrunken heads!?
Hero's Hoard is probably the best choice for the needs of my adventurers but still not good enough.
Would be nice to have a box only for armor with different helms (not crowns!), belts, boots, bracers...
I bought a display and ended up only 18 short of a full set.
I bought these to make treasure seem more real to my players and boy does it work they are dividing it up into stacks to determine how much each person is carrying and giving them more role-play queues.
I also love being able to lay a few cards on the table and tell the players "the wizard had these items on him.
Brilliant stuff in terms of basic gear and treasure, loved to open every booster in the pack. I bought two displays and unforunately had 3 identical boosters (including same foil) but still very nice! Recommended while they last :-)
I just bought 2 display boxes of these and 2 display boxes of Relics of War. I bought these mainly for the consumables (Potions, Scrolls, and Wands). The artwork is great. Not quite so barbaric as in the decks specific to the APs. Great randomization, the only card I did not get 1 of was #11. 4 stars.
