The Evan Sharpley Trading Card

May 20, 2014, 3:21 PM EST

In a partnership between Upper Deck and the University of Notre Dame, we will be presenting special Upper Deck trading cards to five members of the Irish family. After the first card was presented to Jack Nolan (@NDJackNolan), we moved to our next recipient, former quarterback and baseball player, Evan Sharpley (@EvanSharpley).

Why Sharpley?


It’s actually pretty simple. Without the back and forth banter between Evan and I on twitter, this whole campaign would not have gotten off of the ground. See how the idea was started during a twitter conversation during last football season.



The Presentation

The presentation of the card to Evan Sharpley was by former Notre Dame football running back and current manager of football relations for the Monogram Club, Reggie Brooks (’99) .
