Topps has just announced its foray back into the world of basketball trading cards with an exclusive partnership with Overtime Elite (OTE).
As a transformative new sports league that fosters the talents of young up-and-coming basketball players, Topps is looking to showcase some of the league’s names in card form with the introduction of its first four players — Jalen Lewis, Bryce Griggs, TJ Clark, and Izan Almansa.
“At OTE, giving our athletes as many ways to connect with fans as possible is a top priority and partnering with Topps is an integral piece of that,” said Aaron Ryan, OTE Commissioner and President. “Having your own trading card is something many kids dream about, especially young athletes, so to have Topps on board to make these dreams a reality is a huge deal for us and our athletes. We’re thrilled to be a part of bringing their brand back into basketball with the next generation of stars.”
Topps will also create physical trading cards of Overtime Elite players for their Topps Chrome and Topps Inception series that will be available this December and will feature all 24 inaugural OTE players plus bonus cards. Those interested can head over to Topps to pick up a single card for $9.99 USD or a pack of all four cards for $29.99 USD.
