Where are all the Shaun White cards? It's a fair question given that he's been competing for nearly all of his life and is largely viewed as the best snowboarder in history.
Surprisingly, Shaun White does not a have single card from Topps, Panini or Upper Deck. Also, no certified autograph cards.
Although the available cards are quite limited, there are still a few Shaun White cards for collectors to grab.
With multiple gold medals in tow, perhaps collectors can look forward to some future cardboard additions for "The Flying Tomato." Until then, here are some of the key Shaun White cards, including all of his earliest releases.

2003 Sports Illustrated for Kids Shaun White #278
Not just for kids, the 2003 Sports Illustrated for Kids offering features a high-flying White set against the clouds.
Like many of the Sports Illustrated for Kids cards, these are tough to find in good condition as individual cards.
As a result, some collectors prefer to keep the full nine-card sheet intact.
White also has additional Sports Illustrated for Kids releases from 2007, 2008, 2012 and 2013.
2003 Top Trumps Limited Editions Snowboarders Shaun White
Another early option is the 2003 Top Trumps Limited Editions Snowboarders card. As with the Sports Illustrated card, these are generally viewed more as an oddball collectible. However, given the extreme lack of choices, collectors have to dig a little deeper.
2004 Pro Core Sports XG X Games Shaun White #1
The closest thing White has to a mainstream trading card is from Pro Core Sports. The 2004 X Games set includes White in the leadoff spot for the checklist. This unique card, which is larger than the standard size (3" x 4 3/16"), has a die-cut edge along with a sunburst background design. That jagged edge can make high grades tricky.
2004 Pro Core Sports XG X Games Rewind Shaun White #1
Not to be outdone, the foil-enhanced Rewind insert may just be the best-looking Shaun White card out there. This card narrows the focus to showcase White catching big air, seemingly above the tree line in the background. Gem mint versions tend to yield some of the highest sales among his limited card selection.
