The Upper Deck Company recently announced that it has settled the lawsuit brought against it by Major League Baseball. The settlement allows Upper Deck to continue selling baseball cards as long as it doesn’t put team team names or logos on new cards. This, however, is apparently not enough to forestall major changes at the company. ICv2 reports that Upper Deck has instituted significant layoffs, primarily in the entertainment division. Upper Deck explained that the changes are part of a reorganization intended to make the company “more efficient and better positioned going forward.”

After all these events, though, I wonder what impact this might have on Upper Deck’s Marvel trading card and CCG products.
