            LOS ANGELES and NEW YORK (September 23, 2009) – If the prospect of being a Monday morning quarterback every day of the week grabs you, you can now get in the game, thanks to the Topps Company, Total Immersion and the magic of augmented reality.

            The two companies today introduced “Topps 3D Live” football trading cards featuring star National Football League quarterbacks who come to play, at www.toppstown.com, Topps’ virtual sports community.

            Building on the success of its groundbreaking 3D Live baseball cards for Topps, Total Immersion, the global leader in augmented reality, is bringing Ben Roethlisberger, Tom Brady, Eli and Peyton Manning, Donovan McNabb and other star quarterbacks to life in 3D, for  the 2009 NFL season.

Topps, the leading creator and marketer of sports and related cards, is delivering a new level of interactive gameplay via the new football cards, introducing a highly engaging experience where virtual components are merged into a live video stream in real time.

The new Topps 3D Live football cards feature quarterbacks who pop up from specially designated cards to fire passes to virtual receivers, all the while seeking to keep away from defensive obstacles. 

             Every pack of Topps 2009 Football contains one interactive code card.  Fans log on to http://www.toppstown.com/, enter the Topps 3D Live section and select the player on the code card.  Once the player is selected and the program is initialized, it’s time for the snap from center.  When the card is held under a webcam, the quarterback springs to life, onscreen.  Fans control the action with a few keystrokes.             

            “With 3D Live NFL cards, Topps is continuing to innovate, bringing greater interactivity to game play for fans and collectors alike,” said Steve Grimes, Chief Digital Officer, Topps.  “We’re fans of augmented reality, and the quarterback game we’ve developed with Total Immersion is simple, engaging and fun.”

            “Marrying football with augmented reality was a natural after the game-changing success of Topps 3D Live baseball cards,” said Bruno Uzzan, CEO and co-founder, Total Immersion (http://www.t-immersion.com/).  “These cards put fans in the huddle with their favorite NFL quarterback, and demonstrate yet again how augmented reality gets the consumer into the action like nothing else.  That’s the kind of engagement that AR delivers consistently.”

            3D Live augmented reality football cards are the newest attraction at Topps Town, an online sports community. The site was unveiled in June 2008 as part of the iconic company’s plans to expand into the digital space.  Topps was recently named the exclusive card supplier to Major League Baseball.

The Bundesliga 2009/10 series features 416 collector stickers, with five special Topps 3D Live stickers. To use the interactive animation technology, fans log on to the website and select the player on the sticker. Once the programme has started, users simply place the sticker under their web cam and the player comes to life. Each footballer can be rotated around and their movements controlled with a single key stroke.

“The Bundesliga 3D Live stickers follow on from the huge success we’ve had with similar projects for the American Baseball League and the All Blacks in New Zealand,” Philippe de Passorio, VP Sales & Marketing of Total Immersion, explains.

“Topps’ 3D Live stickers have taken sports trading cards to a whole new level and made them even more desirable. This is great news for kids, fans and collectors of the Bundesliga who can now get to see, interact, and even score goals with their favourite football players,” he adds.

To accompany the Bundesliga 2009/10 series, Topps have created a special collector album with an augmented reality front cover, as well as a series of augmented reality posters, which are believed to be the first of their kind in the world.

Rod Pearson, Marketing Manager at Topps, comments: “We have a long history of publishing highly successful collections and this new technology adds a very exciting new element for collectors.”

“As an industry, we are seeing a greater convergence between retail and online product offerings that capture a new generation of internet savvy kids, and Bundesliga 3D Live taps in to childrens’ ever growing interest in the internet and new technology,” he said.
