    Todd Rogers is history's first paid pro video game player. He has helped to pave the way for competitive gaming as we see it today. Demonstrating that the media was wrong about video games being just a fad, Todd has shown time after time that gaming can be profitable, enjoyable, and beneficial to all people who play. Todd has been involved in charitable causes such as feeding the homeless, the Muscular Dystrophy Association, and, as part of Empire Arcadia, has worked to help newer generations of gamers fulfill their dreams of becoming professional gamers. • Trading Card artwork by Caerwyn Akiwumi-Jones
