Click here for the press release from Topps which includes an image of his card.

I'm not real sure about calling these cards "rookies", but...

I don't get it. What does Jay-Z have to do with sports cards other than being part owner of a team.

Sounds to me like they're trying to keep up with Playoff and their "Fans of the Game" sub-set from last years products. They're a step behind if that's the case.

If that's what they're trying to do, they need to position it much better. At least with "Fans of the Game", the angle is that these are famous people that love the sport. With this, they're just adding cards of famous people and calling them "rookies"?? unsure.gif
