Baseball card manufacturer Dad's Kid Corp. is being sued for trademark and copyright infringement by four industry giants. The small, 20-person company here is the target of a suit by Carlsbad-based Upper Deck Co., Score Group Inc., Leaf Inc. and the Major League Baseball Players Assn. Dad's Kid buys the cards of the other manufacturers, cuts them up and makes them three-dimensional. The players' images appear to rise from the surface of the company's Tri Cards.
