If you haven’t heard, Topps tennis cards are being created and will be a game-changer for tennis. There are Topps cards for football, baseball, basketball, soccer, and hockey already. They even have some for Star Wars, so why shouldn’t there be cards for tennis? 

There have been tennis cards before, but they always needed to be more popular to get mass produced. In this article by CARDLINES, they reveal that Fanatics aims to change that and will produce the cards through Topps. The agreement applies to men’s and women’s tennis. The players will maintain their rights to their image and likeness so the players can negotiate their deal on much they should get for the cards.

We know that tennis cards are not a big market, but Topps is trying to monopolize the sports trading card world. It will take longer to do that as they try to achieve this goal. They hope they can reach a new audience and, at most, reach collectible people and tennis fans for the deal to pay out. The Fanatics signed a 20-year contract with the tennis card deal, so they must see the potential in it becoming a huge deal. They are exploring an unknown ground since there have been cards before, but they never got the recognition they deserved. 

Is the reason they didn’t sell so many cards because they weren’t produced through the well-known Topps industry? We won’t know until we see how the Topps tennis cards do. This article by Sports Business Journal says it is not clear when they will have the first Topps tennis trading card released, but they suggest keeping a look out for next year.

There are many famous tennis players, so we can only wonder who will make it onto tennis cards. We listed a few of the top players in tennis that we believe will make a deal to get their own Topps tennis cards.

  • Iga Swaiatek
  • Serena Williams 
  • Novak Djokovic
  • Carlos Alcaraz 
  • Petra Kvitova 
  • Venus Williams 
  • Daniil Medvedev 

We believe many more players will get their own, but we must wait and see. This article by Rookie Road breaks down the six main places where tennis is the most popular. It leads us to believe that when cards are sold, we will see the most sales in England, Australia, the United States, France, Switzerland, and Spain.

You may be surprised to know that the United States is the place that holds the largest stadium in the world, which is right in the city that never sleeps, New York City. It is called Arthur Ashe Stadium and can hold up to 23,771 people. The stadium was built in 1997 and became the National Tennis Center. As a result, this leads us to believe that the United States will play a big role in Topps tennis card sales and trading.

Tennis will have a new avenue for collectibles once tennis cards are created. We believe that collectors who already collect sports cards, especially those made by Topps, will purchase these new cards when available. From everything we have gathered, we believe tennis cards will be a hit when the time comes. We’ll be sure to provide updates once we hear of any movement, production, or further deals.
