How to Get Your NWSL Cards Signed

How to Get Your NWSL Cards Signed

The NWSL has carved out its own niche in the world of sports. It captivates fans, and we’re thrilled we can contribute to that with our trading cards. For avid supporters, you may be looking to add a personal touch to your collection. So, how can fans get their hands on player autographs? Here’s a quick guide.


Attend games 

One of the most direct ways to snag signed NWSL trading cards is by attending matches in person. Many players are generous with their time and happy to connect with fans after the game. Players often make their way to the sidelines to interact with supporters, sign autographs, and take photos. It's a wonderful opportunity to not only score signatures but also to engage with your favorite athletes!

Mail your cards to the team 

If you can't make it to the games or prefer a more straightforward approach, consider sending your trading cards directly to the teams. Most NWSL clubs have official mailing addresses listed on their websites. Enclose a self-addressed stamped envelope along with your trading cards and a polite request for autographs. While response times may vary, many players are gracious enough to sign and return cards sent to them by dedicated fans. Just be sure to follow any specific instructions provided by the team regarding autograph requests.

Attend special team and supporter events

Keep an eye out for special events hosted by NWSL teams throughout the season. From fan appreciation days to meet-and-greets, these occasions offer unique opportunities to connect with players and secure those sought-after signatures. We at Parkside make an effort to create exclusive cards for these types of events, so make sure to follow along for news about upcoming collabs! 

Trade and collect autograph cards 

Lastly, one of the most organic ways to obtain signed NWSL trading cards is through trading with fellow collectors. Joining online communities or attending local trading events can connect you with fans who may have cards signed by the players you're seeking.

I agree, at most women’s soccer matches I’ve been to, several of them will come to the sidelines and they are very gracious with their time.


One thing for new autograph collectors that is not mentioned here is when sending you cards through the mail is to not sending anything that you don’t mind not getting back. Sometimes your mail might get lost or a player might not return your item. There is always a risk when mailing your cards that they might not come back. Many players will but some who get a lot of requests may not be able to accommodate every request and your cards might not return. Also make sure when mailing your cards you protect them. Remember they are cardboard and can bend, crease or rip.
