Brady, Rodgers, Dak Get Carded: NFLPA Teams With Visa For 200+ Debit Cards

By Barry Janoff

October 30, 2018: People like to collect sports-related trading cards, bats, balls and other memorabilia.

Now they can collect NFL-themed pre-paid cards from Visa.

The NFL Players Assn., via its licensing and marketing arm, NFL Players Inc., has joined with Card.com to create more than 200 Visa prepaid cards featuring images of top NFL players.

Among the players on the cards: Tom Brady, Dak Prescott, Aaron Rodgers, Carson Wentz, Rob Gronkowski, Odell Beckham Jr., Ben Roethlisberger, JJ Watt and Nick Foles.

The cards feature photos or caricatures of players and faux autograph signatures.

"It's great to see NFL player licensing extend into diverse new categories," Steve Scebelo, vp-business development and licensing for the NFLPA, said via the organization.

"We are always looking for new ways to build licensing opportunities for NFL players through alliances with partners such as Card.com, who are leaders in their category."

Card.com said it would be “rolling out hundreds more as the season progresses, including standout rookies.”

In May 2018, Card.com was a partner of the NFLPA Rookie Premiere, an exclusive event for more than 40 newly drafted NFL rookies and NFLPA partners to “connect and create content for the upcoming season.”

Card.com said Visa rookie cards are in development.

Card.com also offers such categories as famous people (including Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, Three Stooges and John Belushi), music (Jimi Hendrix, Styx, Jefferson Airplane, Ella Fitzgerald), cartoon characters, art and fashion.

According to Tim Coltrell, CEO for Card.com, ”Consumers want a more personalized payment experience and Card.com provides an opportunity to express yourself through a wide variety of card art designs.

”People are looking for a new way to bank on the go, and our goal is to provide an easy-to-use, affordable banking solution that reflects the individual passions of consumers. The NFLPA cards are a great example of giving consumers a more engaging and fun banking option."

The officially licensed NFLPA designed prepaid cards can be used where Visa debit cards are accepted and “offer a fully featured online banking experience without any overdraft charges or late fees.”

People can sign up online for a card featuring their favorite NFL players (details here).
