Athletes Unlimited announced an agreement with The Topps Company to create an online exclusive trading card set commemorating the inaugural softball league starting today, Sept. 4, on the Topps website.
The Athletes Unlimited Softball limited edition trading cards sell for $20 and feature 57 of the world’s best players including 17 Olympians from four countries (USA, Canada, Mexico and Italy) and players like Cat Osterman, Jazmyn Jackson, Victoria Hayward, Amanda Chidester, Aleshia Ocasio, Haylie Wagner, Samantha Show, Tori Vidales and Jessica Warren among others who are competing at Parkway Bank Sports Complex from Aug. 29 – Sept. 28.
In addition to the 57 individual player cards, the set will include four “About the League” cards. Topps will also offer a special “Championship Set” starting Oct. 5 that will feature the Athletes Unlimited Softball League Champion, Defensive Player of the Season and other award and highlight cards.
The deal represents Topps first women’s professional softball set in the iconic company’s 82-year history. Topps has a longstanding tradition of bringing collectors unique opportunities to capture the best moments from across all sports and entertainment properties.
“Topps has always been on the forefront of sports, producing cards that represent the athletes,” said David Leiner, Topps General Manager. “Topps is thrilled to partner with Athletes Unlimited to produce trading cards that will allow millions of fans around the world the opportunity to celebrate the inaugural softball league featuring the top players in their respective sports, for the first time in our history.”
“Having a brand like The Topps Company celebrate our Athletes Unlimited softball league as their first women’s pro set is an honor,” said Jon Patricof, CEO and Co-Founder of Athletes Unlimited. “These sets will honor some of the greatest female pro athletes competing today and allow our fans the opportunity to own a piece of history.”
