The America-based company Upper Deck has announced that they have signed a multi-year agreement to produce official James Bond 007 trading cards and trading card games with the first batch to be released in 2019. This marks the end of Rittenhouse's almost 15-year long licence period for James Bond trading cards.

Upper Deck, the leading sports and entertainment company, announced on 27th November 2018 that they will produce trading cards and trading card games for the highly coveted James Bond property. In the new agreement with EON Productions, Upper Deck will develop products pulling from a rich collection of films that form the backbone of this uniquely British franchise. These films have defined the spy genre since the release of Dr. No in 1962, and have served as a cultural touch point in a legacy that maintains popularity into the modern era of cinema.

“James Bond is one of the most iconic characters in the history of entertainment,” said Jason Masherah, President of Upper Deck. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to provide a new and unique line of James Bond trading cards and trading card games to fans around the world.”
