We at Morris Sussex Sports want to honor every athlete no matter if they are JV, varsity or freshman, the star of the team or someone who barely gets playing time. We truly feel that our high school athletes are the most important part of our community because it is not easy to be a high school athlete. They have to have good grades to be on a sports team, balance a grueling schedule, stay physically fit and of course keep themselves out of trouble. Many of these young men and women will eventually grow up to be vital parts of our community and economy so it’s important that we give them the props they deserve as young people. So that’s why we came up with the Morris Sussex Sports Player Trading Cards as a way to recognize these hard working athletes and to memorialize the Morris-Sussex sports year. We get a lot of questions around trading cards so we hope this page can answer them here.
