German esports organization SK Gaming and digital and physical collectibles company Kolex announced Monday that they have collaborated on a new signature series collection called the “SK Gaming Signature Series Collection” that is set to debut at Gamescom 2023—arguably the biggest gaming event in Europe—which takes place in Cologne, Germany, (at the Koelnmesse) Aug. 23 – 27.
During Gamescom 2023, SK Gaming and Kolex will be hosting a number of activations on the exhibition floor for fans, including a collaboration with gaming accessories company Cherry Xtrfy to host several dedicated autograph sessions. The signing sessions will feature over “2,500 signature cards adorned with more than 10 prominent SK Gaming players and creators,” according to a release.

The company currently fields teams in League of Legends EMEA Championship (LEC), Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Rocket League, Clash Royale, Brawl Stars, and is the home of many high-profile content creators.
