WWE goes to Panini in 2022
First Topps loses baseball cards, now they’re losing WWE to Panini. Seems like a semi-recovery for Panini after losing basketball and football.

After securing hockey recently, Upper Deck might need to watch out for one of them going for Marvel next Eek

Does this include the NXT wrestling cards that Topps does ? Is that part of WWE ?

Generally not impacted by wrestling cards but the next 5 years of card manufacturing is going to be interesting to watch.

NXT is a WWE brand.

My guess is that means it is going to Panini.

Does that leave Topps with anything on the sports side?

If not they seem the most logical choice for a Fanatics takeover if one happens.

I was thinking Topps could go for something like Big3 basketball with its celebrity connection but Parkside has that. If there are no well-followed sports left, it could look into a license for "Seinfeld" or "Friends" or maybe "Saturday Night Live." I think Topps needs to re-energize with a stunt like that.

They have produced cards for Portsmouth FC which is owned by Michael Eisner and only sold by its own shop.
