Further proving that eSports is all grown up and should be recognized as a real sport, Blizzard created a deck of StarCraft II trading cards. Baseball and basketball players have trading cards—why shouldn't these guys have at least a few?
The cards you see above will be handed out to lucky attendees during the game's world championship finals at Blizzcon this weekend. There's already an eSports related, fan-made visual novel in the works, so this seems like the next proper step. Maybe we'll even get an anime someday, too.
