Michael Jackson set to return to trading cards with Panini's 2011 release

In 2009, Michael Jackson was set to make a comeback with a tour that featured 50 dates in London's The O2 arena.   He generated $85 million in ticket sales just before his untimely death.

On June 8, 2011, Jackson is set to make a different kind of comeback... to trading cards. 

The last time Michael Jackson was featured on trading cards was back in 1984.  Now, more than a year after the first details were announced, Panini will be releasing a set to celebrate the long and successful career of the King of Pop, a man who spent 45 of his 50 years as a professional musician, who had 47 singles that appeared in the Billboard Hot 100, 13 singles that hit No. 1 on the charts and sold more than 750 million records worldwide.
