MMA TRADING CARDS

April 14, 2008

 

MMA is the fastest growing sport in America. Various forms of the sport are all over television and Mixed Martial Arts are HUGE with the younger demographics.

Now get ready for MMA trading cards. Baseball card company, Donruss, announced that they will start making MMA cards next year.

That leads to an interesting debate. How do you present UFC and other MMA fighters to a young audience? Do you use photos like the one above that introduce the fighters to the public?

Or, since MMA is so popular, would you go with an action shot?

If trading/bubble gum card companies are chasing a younger demographic, they may choose to go with more extreme photos. Say something like this:

Or even like this:

Is it politically correct to show Rampage Jackson with his chains?

And, if you’re going to make a Titi Ortiz trading card, do you include Jenna Jameson?

And, if you can put a porn star on a trading card, why not a ring girl?

Or her ass:

If we keep this up I might start collecting UFC trading cards.
