Fans of reality series "American Idol" will soon be collecting their favorite singing stars on trading cards. Imagine if you will: Carrie Underwood, David Cook, Kelly Clarkson and even William Wong--got him, got her, need her.
Card publisher Upper Deck, known for its sports collectibles, is teaming with FremantleMedia, the producers of "American Idol," to create the 138 card series, set to launch April 21, 2009.
"With the trading cards, it’s an old school way of interacting with the fans. It’s another form of expression for the fans to demonstrate their connection with the show and collect their favorites," says Nora Wong, senior manager of consumer products at FremantleMedia.
The "American Idol" trading cards will be sold in packs of five and there will be 6 exclusive autographed cards randomly distributed amongst the bundles.
