Benchwarmer’s 2012 NSCC Plans & Promos


Benchwarmer products reconfirm one of the oldest marketing strategies in the book – sex sells.  Are their models gorgeous?  Absolutely.  But I for one have never had the urge to go out and buy a box of this stuff.

Anyway, they have created an exclusive new product for the 2012 National Sports Collectors Convention.  2012 National features one 10-card pack per box.  Each card is a “hit”.  Look for Carmen Electra autographs and relics.

Anyone that opens a Benchwarmer product from 2008-present at the Leaf booth will receive a commemorative triple autographed card.

Who knows?  Maybe I’ll meet the future Mrs. Sports Card Info at the Benchwarmer booth 🙂

2010 Las Vegas Industry Summit Promos

Maybe its just me, but I haven’t heard a lot out of the 2010 Las Vegas Summit thats going on this week.  If you could afford to attend, I guess industry leaders get together and talk about how to improve The Hobby.  Who knows if anything is getting done, but a few promos have hit the market that I’d like to share.


Otto Graham


Walter Payton

Each of these were provided to certain people as promos.  Both cards are numbered 1/1 and come encased with a Panini sticker across the top.


You can’t forget about Benchwarmers.  Who actually collects these other than overweight guys who have a 98% chance of appearing on an episode of Cops.

I also heard from Upper Deck that they provided a lot of memorabilia and Greats of the Game jersey sheets.  I’d sure like to see what they look like.
