I have been an avid sport cards collector for as long as I can remember. I am a 29 year old married man with a MBA and run my own business, yet still love the hobby of card collecting. Some people consider the hobby as for kids or immature, yet I stand here and tell you there is nothing like it. With that being said, there is a very concerning trend with cards and the hobby which is disappearing and happening right before our eyes. It needs a total transformation and needs to get back into More >
Bowman will launch its Sterling Football on the 15th December and it is fair to say that the price point will probably not be accessible to everyone. Set to set you back between $230 and $250, each box will include 6 packs of 5 cards. Each of these packs will include 2 Relics cards, 2 Rookie Base cards and 1 autographed card. Furthermore, in each box, there will be a dual Relic Box Topper. Marketed as a preview of the hotest 2010 NFL rookie, the product promises to be very popular with rookie collectors and fans of spectacular patches and More >
Panini will attempt to woo football fans with its first high end release on the 24th November with the launch of Panini Limited. Much like Upper Deck’s higher end releases, a box of Limited will only include a few cards, 7 to be exact. Every box will include 2 base cards, 1 legend, 1 rookie, another card numbered to 499 or less, one autograph numbered to 199 or less, one memorabilia card numbered to 199 or less and a further autograph or memorabilia card numbered to 199 or less. Each box should therefore have some very solid hits and we More >
Panini will take to the field again on the 1st December 2010 with the release of the 2010 Gridiron Gear Football cards. With a price tag of around $90 this is an affordable product which packs a fairly good amount of pulls. During a break of Gridiron Gear you should bag yourself 2 Memorabilia cards and 2 Autographs cards as well as 18 rookie cards and 9 inserts/parallels. Like it or hate it, parallels are certainly a regular feature of the Panini products. Some love them, others hate them but one thing is for sure: they have got people talking. More >
With the buzz for the 2008 draft class coming to a crescendo, Press Pass, Inc. has announced that 2008 Press Pass Football is going to be released on Friday, April 18, eight days before the draft, and will now deliver five signatures per box. This will be the first place collectors can find on-card autographs and rare game-used collegiate jersey cards of the biggest names from the upcoming rookie class. Along with possible top picks Darren McFadden, Matt Ryan, and Rashard Mendenhall, collectors will also be able to find autos of Brian Brohm, Jonathan Stewart, Devin Thomas, Joe Flacco, and More >
Press Pass football is always one of the most anticipated early release of football cards. There are several reasons for this. First off, Press Pass shows off all the top prospects for the upcoming draft. Secondly, Press Pass always delivers a slew of on-card autographs that include the top prospects. Thirdly, it comes out just when everyone is thinking about the NFL Draft.
Projected first round picks Darren McFadden, Matt Ryan, Brian Brohm, and Rashard Mendenhall among others are all included in 2008 Press Pass both as base cards and autographs.
The only downfall to Press Pass is that as the season More >
