Only the SJ ALPHA members get this offer and not single issue buyers. So you'll get promo cards (how many depends on the length of membership you currently have) if you're either a member who: A. transferred their print subscription to ALPHA, or B. purchased the annual membership.

I'm sort of hoping that all four promos aren't numbers. I would be nice to get slifer and Magi Magi Magician Girl or some other random monster. Maybe a card form of Astral, from ZeXal, seems how he's the original number

The first promo card has been announced but not yet shipped. Let it have it's time in the sun. You will know about the second promo card probably sometime late spring. I'll be sure to let everyone know once I get the green light.

If you had your subscription transferred from print, you will definitely receive the first card--SHOCK MASTER. And you will receive whatever cards are released during the duration of your membership.
