Call of Duty League to get officially licensed trading cards
Upper Deck will be producing the physical cards.
It has been revealed that the Call of Duty League has signed a deal with Upper Deck to see the creation and distribution of physical CDL trading cards. The cards will be the second time that Upper Deck has explored esports trading cards, as the company previously worked with Activision Blizzard to also produce cards for the Overwatch League.
As the announcement press release states, fans will be able to collect "limited-edition Game Dated Moments cards" that depict players from the 2022 season starting from March 25. Likewise, the cards themselves will be available exclusively from UpperDeckEpack.com, an online platform that allows fans to purchase and trade cards from anywhere around the world.
"Physical trading cards for Call of Duty League have been a fan request for some time, and we're excited to deliver with an exceptional partner like Upper Deck," Daniel Siegel, VP of consumer products at Activision Blizzard. "Fans can now collect actual moments that will become part of Call of Duty League's history through Game Dated Moments cards, collecting and trading for current and future seasons to come."
As for how the cards will be sold, we're told that there will be cards available from the "most memorable events through the season" including the Championship Weekend and each set of qualifiers and Majors. Cards will be on sale for one week following each event concluding.
