Jack Hoffman isn’t your normal 7-year-old. He is currently battling cancer while scoring touchdowns for the University of Nebraska in there Spring football game. Many of you, like myself were compelled by the video of Jack scoring a touchdown during the Huskers’ Spring football game in Lincoln, Neb. Jack’s story and video soon took the internet by storm. The card maker Upper Deck proposed the question of a Jack Hoffman rookie card on Twitter and the response was an overwhelming yes!

Upper Deck’s sports marketing manager released this statement:

Jack is the type of inspirational athlete who absolutely deserves an Upper Deck rookie card. Upper Deck does not want to risk Jack’s amateur status with the NCAA, so the card we created will not be part of a mainstream trading card release. Jack had a larger than life moment on the field that day for Nebraska which is why Upper Deck is creating a limited number of promotional blow-up rookie cards for Jack to sign and use for charitable purposes. Upper Deck is proud to play a small role increasing awareness in Jack’s cause and we are excited to be a part of ‘Team Jack!’

“We are humbled that a prestigious sports card company like Upper Deck would take such an interest in our son Jack,” said Andy Hoffman, Jack’s father. “We are so thankful for their interest in joining our family in the fight against pediatric brain cancer.  With their help, we will be able to keep moving the ball forward by getting this devastating disease elevated onto the national agenda.”

The super sized version of Jack’s card will be sent to Jack to autograph and will be used for a charity fundraiser.
