Michael Rubin, a native of Lafayette Hill who now operates his e-commerce businesses out of Conshohocken, joined with rapper Meek Mill and comedian and actor Kevin Hart on January 12th to announce that they are donating $15 million towards 110 Philadelphia schools serving low-income students. The donation will assist thousands of students from underserved families for the 2022-2023 academic year across schools around the Philadelphia area.
Rubin was also in the news recently for his e-commerce sports-focused company Fanatics’ expansion into trading cards and that Fanatics had secured exclusive, long-term trading card rights from Major League Baseball, the Major League Baseball Players Association, the National Basketball Association, the National Basketball Players Association, and National Football League Players Association. That was followed up with an announcement that Fanatics had acquired the iconic trading card brand Topps.
“With trading cards and collectibles being a significant pillar of our long-term plans to become the leading digital sports platform, we are excited to add a leading trading cards company to build out our business,” said Fanatics CEO Michael Rubin. “Their iconic brand, commitment to product excellence and passionate employees worldwide will allow us to immediately serve our league and players’ association partners and our fans.”
