Sports Card Manufacturers

From the current producers of sports cards like Topps, Upper Deck and Donruss/Playoff to names of the past like Pacific, Pro Set and Star, this is the place for information on the companies that make the cards. Read up on profiles of the manufacturers, then drop them a line to let them know what you like and dislike about the hobby.

Card Company Profile: Upper Deck
Not many companies revolutionize an industry with their very first product, but Upper Deck did just that when it released its first baseball card set in 1999. This profile covers all the basics of the California card maker that's gone on to become a hobby success story.

Card Company Profile: Topps
Topps is the most venerable of all the current sports card manufacturers, with a rich history that dates back to the 1950's. Find out more about Topps in this profile.

Card Company Profile: Donruss Playoff
Donruss Playoff is best known simply as Donruss, even though that storied name has bounced around a bit since the 1980's. Today the Texas-based company is a leading manufacturer of football cards.

Card Company Profile: SA-GE
SA-GE Collectibles specializes in draft pick cards, producing sets that often feature the first cards of recent NFL (and, in the past, NBA) draftees.
