The Upper Deck trading card company has its 2010 Soccer Set, and even if David Beckham never plays again for the Galaxy, he’ll be imortalized in this cardboard collection — with a swatch of his jersey.
The Carlsbad-based company wanted to get this 200-card set out in time for the World Cup — it’ll also have set of cards for that event as well.
There’s 175 “standard” cards with a few subsets — draft rookies and Women’s Pro Soccer All-Stars. The Galaxy’s Landon Donovan is included in special autograph cards.
So are Heather Mitts (Philadelphia Independence), Hope Solo (St. Luis Athletica), Abby Wambach (Washington Freedom) and Karina LeBlanc (L.A. Sol) in the special WPS inserts.
Considering your L.A. Sol disbanded a couple of months ago, perhaps they’ve already jumped in value.
There’s even one card with both Donovan and Beckham — part of the “MLS Teammates Dual Materials” cards. Never thought you’d see that, eh?
