His new style profile seems to suggest it's active, and he already has the first level of TF2 and CS:GO badges Not exactly sure what you have to do after that to get more, but the FAQ seems to suggest:

Quote:
Can I upgrade my game badge?
If you gather another complete set of trading cards you can upgrade that game badge. You can craft a set for a game at most five times. Each time you upgrade the game badge you'll get an extra 100XP, as well as upgrading the image and title of the badge.

Is there a limit to how many trading cards can drop?
Most games will drop a number of cards equal to about half of the number of cards in that game's set of cards. For example, Half-Life 2 has 8 cards in its set, you can receive 4 card drops by playing it. You'll need to collect the other half of the set from other community members...

What about free to play games like Team Fortress 2 or Dota 2?
Free to play games drop game cards based on your in-game purchasing. For every $9 USD spent (approximate) since the start of the Steam Trading Card Beta, you will earn one card drop. This card will drop at some point as you play. If you have made in-game purchases in Dota 2 or Team Fortress 2 prior to the Steam Trading Card Beta, or if you owned Team Fortress 2 prior to the Free to Play update, you will have 4 or 5 additional card drops available.
So I presume buy things in-game for more drops, or trade for more with users.

You have to join the beta trading card group, and it may take a day or two to possibly enter the beta.
