It’s Baseball Week and we’re celebrating with 10% off all orders! Create custom baseball cards, custom softball cards, and custom trading cards of just about any high school sport. You will automatically receive a discount on any order you place April 1–April 8 2017. Discounts apply for individual pay and group pay, too!

Here at Varsity Trading Cards, we cater exclusively to high school sports teams. Your team’s coach will create an account, then invite any players that want to create their own trading cards. We can create cards for just one player or for the whole team—coaches, too!

BASEBALL WEEK IS NOT JUST FOR BASEBALL

While many people think of baseball when they think of trading cards, we make cards for many sports. This includes hockey, volleyball, soccer, football, and more! Baseball week is a great time to finally make that custom trading card to commemorate your basketball season. We also make sure that the back of your card includes your stats and bio. The best part? It’s fast, easy, and fun. You can even make your custom trading card from your mobile device or tablet!

If you’re ready to make your own custom trading cards with us, tell your coach to create an account and set up your team! Then, to create your card, just upload your photo, fill in your stats, and have your coach approve your card. It’s that easy!

We Do More Than Just Print Baseball Cards

WELCOME TO VARSITY TRADING CARDS!

Custom baseball card from 1992—we do more than just print baseball cards
The inspiration behind it all, my flimsy baseball card from 1992.

What, exactly, is Varsity Trading Cards? So glad I asked! Varsity Trading Cards is a company devoted to designing and producing trading cards for High School Student Athletes. Why would I want to print baseball cards (and many other sports) for High Schoolers? Well, firstly, I remember my more formative childhood years as a scrawny athlete. I remember how fun it was to play baseball and soccer year-round every year until I graduated. Unfortunately, I have very little else other than my own flawed memory to look back on. However, there was one year that a local photographer came around to snap silly posed shots of our baseball team to be used on trading cards. Little did we know these cards were simply pictures on photo paper with stickers on the back for us to fill out.

Secondly, I’m a graphic designer that loves to create trading cards. I’ve also been known to collect a baseball card now and then. I mean… I have a few here and there. In my Baseball Card Sanctuary. I always wished that the trading card that I got when I was a kid was more professional. It should have felt like I got something that I could have pulled out of a pack of actual baseball cards. I wanted to be able to look at the back and know that someone took the time to care about the WHOLE card, not just the photo on the front. Now that I’m all grown up, I felt it was time to give student athletes the chance that I missed out on.

CUSTOM TRADING CARDS WITH YOUR OWN STATS ON THE BACK!

What I’m offering is a real, honest-to-goodness product, not some flimsy photograph with a sticker on the back. These aren’t knock-off designs, either. These cards follow the tradition of many sports trading cards and incorporate elements that are thus far unique to Varsity Trading Cards. So how do you get your stats on the back?

Well, here’s how it works. A high school team’s coach creates an account, sets their team’s card template by using their team’s color and logo. The coach then invites players to create their own cards by uploading their own photos and providing their own stats. BONUS: we keep your stats in our database for up to five years. This means the stats you enter this year can be used next year! We don’t just print baseball cards, either. We also do football, basketball, volleyball, hockey, and more! Hey, coach. You can make your own card, too!

AND THE REALLY COOL PART IS…
These cards are offered DIRECTLY to the student athletes who order from Varsity Trading Cards; you can’t get them anywhere else!

We’ve built a fun, interactive, and intuitive card designer that develops high resolution images that are sent to a vendor that can print baseball cards. After a few weeks, you end up with real trading cards customized with your own photo, your team’s logo, and your own stats. You can autograph them, trade them with teammates, share them with friends, give them as gifts, and probably like a ton of other things, too!

I’m really excited to be able to provide a product that I wish I could have had when I was in high school. I can’t wait to hear what you think of your cards. I really think you’re going to love them!
