Exciting news for the racing boards as I have gotten the approval to do this as the feature article for the November issue of SCF Magazine. Over the course of the next 2 or so months all members need to post their own personal nominations to this thread. The racing team will be picking 50 cards to be featured in the SCF Magazine and in fairness to all each member may only nominate 10 of their own cards. If you want your collection and card to be featured in the magazine post it up.

Other than a 10 card limit there is no rule other than stating what the card is-but a scan along with a short description of why you think your card is deserving will help your case to make the magazine article. Let's show them our best guys!

Can I do a group shot of 10 or less cards (a set)? If I can, can I do that once, or...10 times?

I have 2 sets in mind, but one is close to 10 cards and the other is 6.

my first of my own ten PC nominations. I dont want Edwards overload so I am choosing some others to nominate from my PC. I will post one everyday to keep this thread at the top. Again it is important for all members to participate in this thread as itll help me out a lot for the article!

Card: 2011 Press Pass Showcase Elite Exhibit Ink Silver Danica Patrick 08/50

https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2013/08/4775.jpg

Description: A clean Danica auto is much sought after in the Nascar world. The 2011 Showcase Elite Exhibit Ink Design bodes well for a beautiful card and it is my only Danica autograph to this point. For a lot of racing collectors having a Patrick auto is something to be proud of.

Sorry to keep it with Danica, but her moving to NASCAR converted me (and I am sure many others) from a casual observer of NASCAR to a fan. She is the reason I started collecting racing cards and attending the spring and fall races in Phoenix. These are two cards I feel were important to the Racing Hobby.

My #1 is this 2000 Maxx, until i see another i consider it a 1/1. It took a long time & many scans to get beckett to start listing it & when i was at SportsCardSheriff a member showed me an expired Kenseth redemption so he should be listed but..

That set is special to me, as it took 5 years to complete. When I signed up to join the trading sites in 2009, my goal was to complete the rookie set. For quite some time now, I've had all of them minus the Autographed Tire /25, and the Gold Autograph /50. After making a great new friend last year in Tony D. (48is2x24), my dreams of completing this set came true. The great design of the Top Prospect set never fails, not to mention these were some of the first Brad Keselowski cards released, forget race used or autographed! Thanks for letting me share these!

Card: 2011 Press Pass Legends Lasting Legacies Signature Edition Richard Petty "200" Inscription 01/25.

https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2013/08/5087.jpg

Description: A card fit for a King. This card was a pack pull which made it even more special. Not only does it have a piece of firesuit and a classic king signature, it is inscribed with the King's number of career victories and also is serial #01. Just an amazing card for any Nascar collection.

He's by no means the Biggest name in NASCAR history but he really is a Super nice guy!!!

I found these on the second hand market and when I sent Josh Wise(Via FB) the scan of the cards, he told me the story behind them.

He said that him and his daughter(Harlow, 2 at the time) were at the Press Pass office signing cards and she was getting bored, so he decided to do a little doodling with her and came up with these 2 cards.

Here is my 3rd nomination.

Nomination #3.

Card: 2012 Press Pass Signature Series Shoe Tony Stewart "Smoke" Inscription 07/12.

https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2013/09/155.jpg

Description: One of the best pulls I have ever had. The Smoke signature is extremely rare he signed less than 5 of them like this one. I cannot bring myself to trade or sell it and it is one of my favorite cards of a racing legend.

Card: 2011 Press Pass Fanfare Autographs Dual Jack Roush/Carl Edwards 09/10

https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2013/09/192.jpg

Description: One of my favorite cards in my collection and the dual autograph available of the legendary car owner and Carl. Also the fact that the signatures are very clean and that it is Carl's old door #9 which he raced going up which adds to my like for this card.

Card: 2009 Press Pass Showcase Prized Pieces Ink Firesuit Patch Carl Edwards 2/5

​https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2013/09/608.jpg

Description: From Showcase's first year other than the melting foil 1/1 patch this is the card to have and I waited almost a year and a half for it. Being a redemption Edwards lost the first batch of cards sent to him so Press Pass had to reproduce them (hence the silver and blue firesuit patch instead of a black and green). So literally I waited a longtime for this one but it is one of the best in my collection.
