You might have seen her do “The Dougie” at an NBA game, or you might have seen her bust out her newest dance moves, the “Cat Daddy,” on TMZ on Tuesday.

You might have seen her deny Justin Verlander an entrance into The Perfect Club, or, of course, you might have seen her on the cover of this year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.

But where you haven’t seen Kate Upton just yet is on a baseball card — but even that’s about to change this summer.

You see, the Michigan-born 19-year-old dancing machine will be one of several non-sports inclusions in the upcoming Allen & Ginter baseball card set from Topps. Yep, that means she’ll possibly be alongside Verlander (and other stars of her other MLB 2K12 videos)  in packs of cards starting on July 11 when this year’s collection of world’s champions — oh, and baseball players — arrives.

And, yes, that means collectors will be able to find certified autographs of the IMG model, too.

Among the world’s champions signers this year are Olympian Michael Phelps, Notre Dame coaching legend Ara Parseghian, Curly Neal and Meadowlark Lemon of Harlem Globetrotters fame, Erin Andrews of ESPN, billiards star Ewa Mataya, broadcaster Greg Gumbel, golf star Colin Montgomerie, ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit, women’s basketball star Swin Cash and boxing voice Michael Buffer to name a few.

Oh, and they’ll all have Relic cards, too. No word, though, on whether Upton’s will be a short-printed bikini card.

    I feel sorry for you lonely card collectors who don’t have the social skills to talk to women.
