Not only do I love drawing sketch cards for trading card sets, but I also love collecting cards. Upper-Deck makes some of my favourite sets of cards from sports I love like hockey & the CFL along with non-sports franchises like Marvel Comics, Aliens, and more recently a set for the James Bond movies. Recently, Upper-Deck has expanded into the esports genre with their new Overwatch League trading cards available on their epack program.

Esports is where people competitively play video games, with millions of people watching them compete. People in the thousands will go to the events in person or watch online and can now collect their favourite competitors in a trading card format. As Upper-Deck has said, this is the “first-ever official esports league trading card release as well as stickers, sticker books, prints, posters and memorabilia”. I love that trading cards continue to grow into new fields and with the rise in popularity of esports it only makes sense!
What also makes sense, is that since esports is principally a digital medium that their first trading cards also be offered in a digital medium through epack. Epack is an online collectible trading card website from Upper-Deck. On this website a user may purchase, collect, and trade their cards. Numerous different Upper-Deck trading card products are offered there including hockey, football, entertainment, and now esports. In addition to buying, collecting, and trading, people can also connect with other collectors on the epack website to talk about their hobbies!
If you also prefer having your cards in hand, epack also facilitates that! You can purchase your cards online and when you’re ready to add them to your physical collection at home you can select those cards in you epack account and have them shipped to you. The cards you get in your digital account are the same ones you get shipped to you! Very cool process.
