Sports Trading Cards Get Video Screens

by Shane McGlaun

When I was a kid, I collected my share of baseball cards. I was particularly fond of a line of cards called Sportflics. These cards were made of cardboard like all cards, but when you moved them back and forth, the image on the card would change. A new trading card is set to come that makes those Sportflics cards look dumb.

The new cards come from a company called Panini America and will be offered with four different basketball player cards to start. Apparently, the cards will be stuffed into random packs of five cards that sell for $20 per package, and the cards will be limited inserts into the retail packages. The cards have a small LCD screen on them and are still made of cardboard.

That screen is able to show about 20 minutes of video content to the user and it has 2GB of storage. The user can upload more audio or video content to the card as well via USB adapter that is included.
