Penn State Produces Unorthodox Set of Trading Cards

The Penn State Alumni Association footed the bill to have 3,000 packs of the trading cards produced. The cards are not available for sale and can only be had through participation various on campus contests and giveaways - especially at tailgate parties during home football games.
Some of the subjects depicted in the set include a Nobel Prize winning researcher, an anthropologist, a physicist, and a nutritionist.
