Monsters of the Midway Trading Cards | Chicago Bears Official Website
For a second year in a row, the Chicago Bears have partnered with ATHLiTACOMiCS (started by Bears alum Israel Idonije) to create "Monsters of the Midway" trading cards, an expansion of the original campaign that launched in 2018 and melded the world of comics and sports. Through the collaboration, the Bears and Idonije's team created an alternate universe where players are depicted as superheroes collectively known as the "Monsters of the Midway." Each player has his own unique power, which plays off his natural skillset on the field. A total of 20,000 packs of trading cards will be distributed to fans for FREE during the 2022-23 season (while supplies last).
The 2022 edition of the "Monsters of the Midway" trading cards will be produced by Panini and feature 19 players, Coach Matt Eberflus, The Keeper and four additional cards. The collection is a mix of standard cards and five featured players in a foil finish. There will also be a run of two limited-edition foil alumni cards of George Halas and Walter Payton. The Halas and Payton cards are not included in the packs but can be won through the "Monsters of the Midway Trading Card Sweepstakes."
