Saints super-fan ‘JJ’ gets his own trading cards

WGNO 
NEW ORLEANS – Fourteen-year-old Jarrius “Little JJ” Robertson – in need of a life-saving liver transplant – has already taken the world of sports by storm as he keeps attending big events and encouraging people to become organ donors.

And now he is getting a new tool to help spread his message: his own football cards designed to promote organ donation.

The first of two card designs – featuring Jarrius in the purple and gold of the LSU Tigers – will be released on Tuesday, March 21, during a reception at the Walk-On’s Bistreaux & Bar on Burbank Drive in Baton Rouge.

The event will be from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

It will be hosted by Baton Rouge author Jeffrey Marx, a longtime organ donation advocate who produced the cards in collaboration with the Louisiana Organ Procurement Agency (LOPA).

Jarrius will receive the ceremonial card #1 at the event, with former LSU football stars Corey Webster (two-time Super Bowl champion) and Marcus Randall (now head coach of state champion Southern Lab) joining Marx to make the presentation. Continue reading
