LFL women’s football league planning player trading cards … again
The LFL made the announcement on Jan. 15 on its Facebook page.
“National Trading Card Company set to produce team and favorite player sets in 2015. More details coming,” the LFL said.
The Facebook entry featured sample cards showing three players: Chelsie Jorgenson of the L.A. Temptation, Ange Yangas of the Chicago Bliss and Ashley Johnson of the Atlanta Steam.
However, this is at least the fifth time the LFL has promised to make trading cards of its players. It did so previously in March 2011, June 2011, April 2012 and again in February 2013. But no cards were released.
I searched online for National Trading Card Company and couldn’t find a website for it. I did find an eBay store, however. It appears to specialize in selling replica tickets from major sporting events.
The LFL is scheduled to start its 2015 season on April 11. The league had its inaugural season in 2009. It has since expanded into Canada and Australia.
