LOS ANGELES (AP) - “American Idol” fans will soon be able to trade Carrie Underwoods for Danny Gokeys.

“Idol” production company FremantleMedia and trading card publisher Upper Deck are launching a new line of trading cards featuring images of past and current contestants and the judges and host of the Fox singing competition. The 138-card line is set to debut April 21.

Six special cards autographed by past “Idols” will be randomly slipped into the five-card packs. Regular cards will feature rejected hopefuls such as William Hung and Nick Mitchell, past winners like Ruben Studdard and David Cook, and popular finalists including Adam Lambert and Jennifer Hudson.
