Because You Always Wanted a Chris Jent Fathead Trading Card, Admit It

Posted By on Thu, May 7, 2009 at 3:42 PM


The Plain Dealer had a story the other day about Fathead's first set of NBA tradeables. Since Dan Gilbert owns both Fathead and the Cavs, it's no wonder that the Wine and Gold are the first team to be selected.

You can now pre-order the set on, but unfortunately, the few pics they have up don't include Chris Jent.

If you love assistant coach Hank Egan, or guard Tarence Kinsey, along with Mo Williams and Anderson Varejao, this is the set for you.

"The Cavs have one goal in mind as one dynamic team, so our complete roster of players in the Cavs Tradeables set reflects that mind-set -- one team, one goal," said Fathead Chief Executive Officer Patrick McInnis, who came up with the idea for the team set three weeks ago. "The sum of 15 is greater than one. I wanted to include the coaches because they are influential in creating the right philosophy and culture that is instrumental to winning a championship."

The collectors team sets are an outgrowth of Fathead Tradeables, packages of five 5x7 sport-specific Fathead cards. Think of the baseball cards you traded as a kid, only bigger and minus the sugary, brittle bubble gum. And while you can't stick these between the spokes of your bike tires, you can stick the vinyl wall graphics anywhere — and easily move them and stick them somewhere else.

Yes, I do, in fact, need a Hank Egan Fathead trading card.
