Sports photography traditionally strives for images that are bright, well saturated, and razor sharp. To meet those needs your first choice should be a high gloss inkjet paper. Its smooth, bright white surface helps accentuate details and bold uniform colors.
Your next choice would be a satin or luster paper. This surface maintains excellent saturation while adding more protection from handling and fingerprints. Choosing a bright white paper is still important, although a slightly warmer satin helps with skin tones and the natural colors on the field of play.
Finally, for the artistic and journalistic look you might consider a photo matte. The non-reflective surface works to remove the edgy nature of an image and to accentuate the subtle detail.
You can use 86lb. Pecos River Gloss Duo for custom, low volume trading card printing. This paper is excellent for the project with its heavy weight and ability to withstand handling.
For posters where you want to keep costs low and quality high, consider 47lb. Premium Matte. It comes in many sheet sizes and rolls up to 24" wide.
68lb. UltraPro Gloss prints vibrant colors and deep blacks with any inkjet printer. 10.4mil thickness gives your prints true photo lab quality. Compatible with any inkjet printer, this paper dries instantly for immediate quality and resistance to smears.
