A case study about how Leaf Trading Card Co. & Signables Memorabilia use OpenSponsorship to work with athletes on any level of their game. 

Leaf Case Study OpenSponsorship
Why OpenSponsorship?

In Need of a Team with Connections

Both Leaf and Signables have strong connections to the largest athlete management agencies in the world. However, when working with those agencies, they were limited to the athletes on their roster. With OpenSponsorship, both companies are able to reach nearly any athlete in the world due to OpenSponsorship's connection with managed athletes, self-managed athletes, and athletes that are represented by small agencies. 

You can try to navigate the complicated athlete/agency world, or an OpenSponsorship account manager can do it all for you.

Connecting With Trinity Rodman

Rodman may be a name we all know from the 96 Bulls, but it's not yet synonymous with Women's Soccer. In 2023, Trinity Rodman, daughter of Dennis Rodman, made her debut with Team USA in the WWC. Women's soccer is expanding quickly, but not all the players have received the attention from large agencies they deserve. For this reason, Leaf struggled to connect with Rodman through their existing agency connections to hire her for a trading card signing deal.

Our team of Account Managers made quick work of this problem since Rodman was already signed up for deals on OpenSponsorship. Our team negotiated a deal between Rodman & Leaf in which she signed 1,000 cards.
