CeeDee Lamb faces lawsuit from Trading Card Company

Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb is facing legal action from Dallas-based Leaf Trading Cards, according to Denton County, Texas, records.

The trading card firm filed suit against Lamb, 23, on May 20 alleging that the young star “violated the parties’ License Agreement by failing and refusing to sign all of the cards he agreed to sign,” according to court documents obtained by Mike Fisher. of Cowboys Country.

Lamb did not deliver what was promised

As a result, Leaf claimed it “was unable to fulfill requests from customers who had received trading cards that would be exchanged for a card signed by Lamb.”

Leaf is seeking damages and attorneys’ fees of up to $100,000 from Lamb after its actions “caused significant harm to Leaf, including loss of revenue and loss of goodwill with customers.”

The company also requested that the court make Lamb’s legal surrender either at his home in Proper, Texas or at the Cowboys’ offices in Frisco; the club is set to kick off OTAs on May 24, according to documents obtained by Fisher.

They already have a legal claim

Earlier in the day, Leaf CEO Brian Gray addressed the lawsuit on social media. Gray said the lawsuit is the company’s first “against an athlete to force the completion of an autograph contract so that customers who have redemptions are not forced to take replacements.”

He continued, “We hate to do this, but customers need defense here.”

Lamb, the No. 17 overall selection in 2020, has compiled 153 receptions for 2,037 yards and 11 touchdowns in his career.
