“American Idol” launches collectible cards



You’ve seen the show, laughed at some contestants, voted for others, bought the records, downloaded the songs, watched them on tour…. and now you can keep them all in your pocket courtesy of theĀ ”American Idol” collectible cards.

The makers of the hit TV talent show have teamed up with a collectible cards maker to issue a set of 138 cards — some of them autographed — of the Top 2 finalists from each of the last seven seasons and some fan favorites who didn’t quite make it — think William “She Bangs” Hung.

The cards, sold in packs of five, go on sale on April 21.

Wonder which one will end up being “most collectible” in five years time?
