Global Sports Trading Card Market is projected to be worth USD 55,895.40 million by 2033 and is anticipated to surge at a CAGR of 13.21%.

Usually made of thick paper or paperboard, a trading card (also known as a collecting card) is a little card featuring an image of a person, place, or object on it along with extra information, such as facts or knowledge. Collectible cards with images of athletes, teams, and athletic events are known as sports trading cards. Their sentimental significance, scarcity, and investment and profit potential have made them extremely popular among collectors and investors. For sports fans, these cards bring back special memories and establish a tangible connection to the game. 

Global Sports Trading Card Market Driving Factors and Challenges
The growing demand for online card transactions is one of the key factors propelling market progress. Block-chain technology and non-fungible tokens (NFTs) have radically changed the online trading card business. Additionally, fans now have the opportunity to buy smartphones online without worrying about losing them, thanks to a drop in the average selling price of these devices and advancements in communication network infrastructure. As such, the increasing adoption of block-chain technology, along with the increasing widespread usage of smartphones, is likely to affect market expansion in the years to come. The growth of bitcoin for online purchases is one of the key industrial advancements driving market expansion.

Online data security issues are one of the factors challenging the market's growth. Most websites do not have an appropriate dispute resolution framework, nor do they have transparent compensation procedures. In addition, the validity of online platform providers is undermined by the absence of fair online trading standards. This credibility issue prevents new clients from purchasing sports trading cards online and impedes the market's growth. As a result, it is expected that this will hinder market growth throughout the estimated period.

Impact of COVID-19 on Global Sports Trading Card Market
Apart from the athletes that participate in different leagues or tournaments, the majority of stadiums across the globe remain deserted. COVID-19 has contributed to the rise of the online gaming industry among tech-savvy millennials. In order to improve financial transactions between staff and supporters, the sports industry has started integrating block-chain technology into the bitcoin ecosystem. The future of sports lies with cryptocurrencies and their block-chain technology that interacts with the global market. The sports industry has realised that cryptocurrencies have the potential to be very successful in the tech-driven, post-pandemic future.
