The Little League World Series champs knocked it out of the park with their baseball cards.

Carlsbad's Upper Deck card company produced the cards that the Park View All Stars signed for fans on Friday at the autograph signing/pizza party at the San Diego Hall of Champions in Balboa Park. Upper Deck printed 250 cards of each of the 12 players and coaches for them to share with their family and friends.

The Blue Bombers won it all on Aug. 30 in Williamsport, Penn., when they beat the Taiwan team, 6-3.

“This is great,” said Andy Rios, the team’s shortstop who was named the series MVP. “People have been asking us for autographs ever since we won, but I never thought we’d get our own Upper Deck trading cards.”

The team returned from Pennsylvania to a celebration in their home city, as well as visits to Petco Park and the Chargers training camp. The team hopes to visit the White House "before Christmas," said coach and player parent Rod Roberto.
