Justin Bieber can’t play hockey, so he did the next best thing to get on a card by Susan Lulgjuraj

Justin Bieber dreamed of being a hockey player with his own trading card when he grew up.

While the pop sensation didn’t fulfill his first dream, the Canadian singer is living out his second at 16 years old.

Panini America released the official Justin Bieber trading card set – just in time for Christmas for his millions of fans worldwide. The collection features 150 unique trading cards with 30 stickers. Inserts in the set include 12 Spellbound cards, nine puzzle pieces that form a poster, 18 Download cards and 10 XXOO cards.

The Bieber set will also have 500 autograph cards randomly inserted. Even if you aren’t a Bieber fan (and quite possibly are not if you are part of our typical audience here), these autographs could sell for a decent amount of money on eBay. Maybe enough to get a baseball or football card you’ve been eying as a self-Christmas present.

The Justin Bieber trading card packs retail for $1.99 and includes five cards and one sticker.

“It’s awesome. It makes me feel great,” Bieber said. “I remember collecting hockey cards, so the idea that kids are going to enjoy my cards is like I enjoyed hockey cards is amazing.”

Besides sports trading cards, Panini dips into the entertainment side of collectibles. This year, the company released a sticker album featuring Disney’s Toy Story 3. Bieber is just the next in line of entertainment cards from Panini.
