Flashback Product of the Week: 2003 NFL CD Cardz

Photobucket

The 2012 NFL season is officially underway.  This week has been great for football collectors with products like Topps Platinum and Panini Momentum being released.  Out of the five rookie starting quarterbacks only one came out on top last weekend – Robert Griffin III.

CD-ROM based cards weren’t anything new to collectors when Serious released this 60-CD set back in 2003.  Collectors first saw cards of this sort back in the late 90’s.  I never found them to be all that exciting, and they died out in the early 2000’s.  Serious was a company based out of the United Kingdom, and I’m not sure what they were thinking hoping that this product would be a success.  By 2003 the CD-ROM cards hype was well over.  Releasing a product like this in 2003 was like Topps hyping up a new product in today by saying it has cards that contain jersey pieces actually worn by the player.  Just a little late to the party.  Perhaps this is why Serious isn’t around anymore.  At least their website doesn’t work.

What was on these CDs?  Player bio, stats, pictures, videos, wallpapers, etc.  Sealed packs can be found for a few bucks.
