A new series of trading cards picturing American Idol contestants and judges was issued on April 21 by American Idol producer FremantleMedia and trading card publisher Upper Deck. The series features 138 cards of past and current contestants, with five cards in each pack. In addition, six autographed cards will be shuffled into randomly-selected packs.
In the show’s eight seasons, there have been six Top 12s, one Top 10 and this year’s Top 13. This means that it will take 95 cards just to spotlight each finalist at least once. Give one to each of the four judges and Ryan and you’re down to 38 cards up for grabs in the 138-card set.
Clay Aiken is featured twice on the cards. Take a look and decide if you are going to try and get a Clay Aiken trading card.
