Star quarterback Trevor Lawrence and Topps announced an exclusive agreement to produce a 50-card box that will be released in April.
All 50 trading cards will feature a unique design, 20 of which will be created by Lawrence’s brother, Chase, and his sister-in-law, Brooke, who are professional artists. Lawrence is projected as the top pick in the 2021 NFL draft next month and is the winningest quarterback in Clemson history.
“I’m excited to be working with Topps on this really unique set,” said Lawrence. “Chase and Brooke are extremely talented artists and it is special to collaborate with them on these custom designs.”
The market for collectible cards, especially newbie cards, has increased over the past year, and demand for Lawrence’s card is presumed to be very high.
“There are so many things that make Trevor unique, including his incredibly talented family, and Topps was the right partner to bring him to life,” said Alan Zucker, partner at Excel Sports Management and marketing agent for Lawrence.
“This one-of-a-kind collection offers fans a piece of memory that they won’t be able to get anywhere else.”
The 50-card set will include a mix of oil paintings, digital renderings, autographed pieces, and inspiration from previous Topps designs. The 20 cards created by Lawrence’s brother and sister-in-law were inspired by the 1960s and 1970s, as well as illustrations from comic books and graphic novels.
The exact release date is not yet known, but Topps says it will be in April, close to the time of the draft, which begins April 29. It is widely projected that the Jacksonville Jaguars will select Lawrence with the first overall pick.
