2013 Press Pass Platinum Cuts Inscription Edition Preview – Do We Really Need Another Cut Signature Driven Product?

I have to be honest.  The hobby doesn’t need another all cut signature driven product.  Panini, Leaf, TRISTAR, and Historic Autographs already do plenty of them.  We don’t need another.  Is there a spot for them?  Sure.  But just because a few companies do something doesn’t mean you have to join in.  Competition is good for collectors, but when it comes to cut signature products you’re not really competing for much.  When an entire product is based on the signature itself, design goes straight out the window.  Nobody gives two cents about the border design or if the card is encapsulated in a Beckett holder.  With each release the market gets flooded with the same signatures.  Of course they all contain cards we would love to pull, but the chances of that happening are slim to none.

2013 Press Pass Platinum Cuts Inscription Edition is Press Pass’s first venture with a cut signature product.  With 2,000 “1 of 1” cuts in an already saturated market, I’m sorry to say I don’t see this going too far.  I also don’t think cut signatures should be made of people that are still living.  Personally, I’d like to see some fancy insert cards made of these people.  Do something different.

Another Press Pass Replacement Mailday

Press Pass sent me another replacement for my Dez Bryant 2010 Press Pass autograph redemption.  This time they sent a Mike Williams 2010 autograph.  Earlier this week they sent me an Earl Campbell 2008 Press Pass Legends – Bowl Edition Top 25 autograph #’ed/75.  I think they’ve covered all their bases on this one.  I’m quite happy with my replacements.

Another Note On Score Board COA’s

Early this morning I received a comment on the post I wrote yesterday dealing with Score Board COA’s.  Apparently that COA with the McGwire “autograph” isn’t plastered on the back of the card.  Instead its totally separate, which is completely worse.  What stops someone from making their own counterfeit autograph and then taking a crappy COA that doesn’t mention the player’s name to go along with it?  Thats right.  Nothing.  I said it before, and I’ll say it again.  Stay far away from items certified by Score Board.

Any counterfeiter could use this COA for almost anything.
