Trading-card company sues Luck

Share This Story


A Texas-based trading card company is suing probable No. 1 NFL Draft pick Andrew Luck, claiming it has the right to sell trading cards that use an image of him taken during the 2008 US Army All-American Bowl — a high school All-Star game it has the rights to.

The company said the suit came in response to a demand from the quarterback's attorney that Leaf stop selling the cards because it infringed on Luck's "publicity rights," the Dallas Observer reported.

"Leaf Trading Cards is disappointed that it was forced to submit this matter to the judicial system," Leaf attorney O. Luke Davis III said.

"We are confident, however, that the court will find that Leaf has the right to produce and sell the Andrew Luck trading cards."

The suit was filed Friday in Dallas County Court, a week after Luck's attorney filed the cease and desist letter.

Luck, a former Stanford star, reportedly already has been told by the Indianapolis Colts that they will select him with the No. 1 pick on Thursday, the first day of the 2012 NFL Draft.
