Personalized Sports Cards

I never sent in for these, but they were an option with the photo package when I played youth soccer. When you ordered the photos, you filled out your height, weight, jersey number, and “favorite player.” I do believe that for that entry, every person on my team answered “Pele,” because in America, there are just not that many famous soccer players.

  1. This reminds me of the GI Joe ones that were advertised in some comics back in the 80s. With those ones you couldn’t get a custom photo (all the custom cards had the same generic, masked character), BUT you did get an action figure of “yourself” to go along with it.
