Elite members of Team USA are soon to be immortalized in a new line of Topps trading cards. The U.S. Olympic Committee authorized a deal with Topps to offer Americans another way to support Team USA and learn more about the athletes who will be representing the country in London. The cards will be sold at Wal-Mart, Target, and hobby stores.
Volleyball players feature prominently in the new card collection. Beach legends Phil Daulhasser, Todd Rogers, and Misty May, as well as the indoor powerhouse Kim Glass, and Paralympic team member Kari LaRaine Miller each pose in front of a rippling American flag, frozen in play or celebrating a point. Karch Kirlay also appears in the collection, a part of the Champions cards featuring past Olympic greats.
The packs will sell for approximately $3 each and a portion of each purchase will go directly to the USOC to fund continued athletic excellence.
