The concept of trading cards began in the 1850’s at a time when color printing was a novel idea. The earliest examples were advertising cards, which became highly collectable due to their vibrant colors. Sports cards gained their popularity in the 1880’s as tobacco companies started including trading cards in their packs. Over the years, the hobby of collectable cards has endured. They allow fans to see their favorite athletes in action, often accompanied by statistics, accomplishments, or interesting glimpses into their lives. As trading cards evolved, many sets started to include autographs and memorabilia cards containing game-used relics. This further allows fans to connect with their heroes by giving them an opportunity to own a small piece of sports history.
Disc sports including disc golf, ultimate, and disc dog have all been featured on trading cards. We at The Flying Disc Museum are proud to welcome you to our trading card gallery.
