The first series of collectible eSports player stickers has been released by iHearteSports, a company that creates and sells unique, limited edition stickers for eSports personalities and competitive gaming teams and events.
iHearteSports has chosen compLexity Gaming players to be included in the first release of the product. Below is the official release from iHearteSports.
iHearteSports.com is stoked to announce our new product line; collectible eSports player stickers. These baseball card sized stickers are a first of their kind product for the eSports community. To kick things off we have teamed up with compLexity Gaming to release player stickers for: Catz, Drewbie, Tri-Master and coL.MVP DongRaeGu. Pre-orders will begin Tuesday afternoon, January 10th and will begin shipping internationally the following week. Each Tuesday throughout January, we will be releasing new players and announcing new team partnerships. By the end of February we will have over 30 players to collect!
Player cards have long been a part of professional sports and provide an excellent way for fans to connect with their favorite teams and players. Through our licensing agreements with each team, our collectible stickers also provide additional merchandising revenue for each of our partner teams.
This is a first of its kind product for the eSports community that has been many months in the making. I am so excited to release these stickers just in time for the 2012 eSports ‘season’”, said Jason Tugman, Product Manager for iHearteSports.com. “One thing I am really excited about with player stickers is that they are small and light- this makes them very accessible to the global eSports community. Australia, Denmark and Germany are huge markets for eSports. Making a product that we could ship internationally and not have to charge our customers ridiculous postal fees for was really important to me. Being able to create a product that fans want, being able to make that product affordable all while supporting the eSports eco-system is, to me, a win-win-win situation.
