There are plenty of pieces of merchandise that already carry Justin Bieber's name and face, from headphones to nail polish to good old-fashioned "Runaway Love" booty shorts. There is now a new item (or rather, set of items) for Bieber fanatics to collect, as the 16-year-old Canadian pop sensation has lent his face to a series of trading cards.
There are a total of 150 cards and 30 stickers, and there are also a handful of bonus items (including a series of puzzle cards that make up mini posters). Each foil pack will cost $1.99 and will contain five cards plus a sticker. "I always dreamed of being a hockey player and having my own trading card," Bieber said in a statement about the release of the card series. "I remember collecting hockey cards, so the idea that kids are going to enjoy my cards like I enjoyed my hockey cards is amazing!"
We scored a look at some of the cards, and they feature images of Bieber from throughout his career. There are live shots, press photos and behind-the-scenes images that show Bieber in a number of different arenas and contexts. Each one also contains a piece of Bieber-related trivia, from the mundane to the sublime.
The packs will be available in a number of different retailers, so be on the look out for this display box at any number of stores in your area.
