Trading Cards Launched of Justin Bieber
Panini America has partnered with the “Baby” singer to come up with the Justin Bieber trading cards, a collection that includes 150 cards and 30 stickers. Included in the special trading card collection are four nine-card puzzles that fans can turn into small posters of the 16-year-old pop phenom. The trading cards collection is the latest of a growing list of Bieber merchandizes that have come out since the Canadian teener was discovered through YouTube in 2008.
“I always dreamed of being a hockey player and having my own trading card,” Bieber said in a statement. “I remember collecting hockey cards, so the idea that kids are going to enjoy my cards like I enjoyed my hockey cards is amazing!”
The collection will be available in retail stores next week, with a pack of five cards and a sticker selling for $1.99 each.
