For the trading cards that come with the Collector's Edition, see Collector's edition trading cards.

Steam Trading Cards were added to Terraria on 7/15/2013, shortly before the 1.2 update. These cards will automatically be awarded while playing the game, assuming the player bought the Steam version of the game. Players will receive up to four cards while playing. After that, it is possible to obtain more cards from booster packs, which are randomly given or by buying them from other players. There is also the special Foil variant, which are rarer, but have no other benefit.

Steam Trading Cards can be used to craft badges (and Foil badges), which show on the player's Steam profile and increase their Steam level. The player can also craft emoticons which can be used in Steam chat. Last of all they can be used to craft backgrounds, which the player can display on their profile. The player can also directly trade the crafted items.
