Klein’s Korner: Tennis (cards) anyone? – Flashback: Thinking about a day early in 1991 after moving to Dallas a few months earlier, I was in one of the First Base stores and local dealer Gervise Ford is telling Wayne Grove and myself that a new Tennis set is being produced. (Side note: Gervise is one of the best people I ever met in the hobby and helped one Dr. James Beckett become part of the burgeoning hobby way back in the day).
Future Watch Special Edition: Naomi Osaka Tennis Cards, AP Female Athlete of the Year – There are few athletes in tennis who have transcended their sport in recent years.

There are constant rumors swirling that other licenses will be announced, possibly before the end of the year. There are still some sports and entertainment properties out there that don’t have a card pact yet. The one that has not been talked about, yet could very easily have a product come together rather quickly, is boxing.
