In 2007 I had the honor of getting my very own trading card. Growing up I was a huge sports fan and like a lot of kids I dreamed of making it pro one day. I came up very short as far as my sports dream so I was thrilled when Topps contacted me and asked if I would like to be included in their World Champions set. The Allen & Ginter set has a vintage look and in addition to featuring some of the best athletes in the world, the set also features competitors beyond conventional sports. For example, the 2007 set included Joe Frazier and Mia Hamm as well as Jamie Fischer (World Lumberjack Champion) and Ken Jennings (Jeopardy! Champion).
