Upper Deck and All Elite Wrestling announced a brand-new partnership to make trading cards based on the wrestling company’s huge pool of talent. The first edition of Upper Deck AEW trading cards arrive in November 2021. This is the first time in Upper Deck’s history that they’ll offer trading cards for Professional Wrestling. The new line features wrestlers like: Chris Jericho, AEW Champion Kenny Omega, AEW World Tag Team Champions The Young Bucks, AEW Women’s Champion Britt Baker, TNT Champion Miro, and many more.
Paul Zickler, Upper Deck Sports Brand Manager, had this to say:
We are excited to offer professional wrestling trading cards to our collectors and AEW fans for the first time. AEW is a prominent organization in the industry with a passionate fan base, and we look forward to building a long-lasting relationship and a robust wrestling product portfolio.
Tony Khan, CEO, GM, and Head of Creative for AEW had this to say about the partnership:
Upper Deck is the premier collectibles company in the world for trading cards and memorabilia, and we’re thrilled to work with them in expanding our engagement even further with fans around the world. Since day one, we’ve made it a priority to listen to our fans and connect with them in new and immersive ways. This includes the new AEW RAMPAGE on Friday nights on TNT, our action figures that fly off the shelves, a next-gen console game that incorporates fans’ feedback, and now these amazing trading cards and memorabilia. AEW has the greatest fans on the planet, and we hope they love this new way to engage with our stars.
