A Step In The Right Direction – Cards & Video Games Unite

Last year I wrote a post about how card manufacturers should try to enter the video game industry. ¬†Well, it looks as if Sports Card Info has influenced Panini to do so ūüôā ¬†Panini and EA Sports have teamed up for the new Madden 11. ¬†Panini has produced 50 exclusive Drew Brees on-card autographed cards that can only be obtained inside copies of Madden 11.

This is a great step in the right direction. ¬†The video game industry is huge, and there isn’t a much more popular sports game than Madden. ¬†This is the type of innovation I like to see within The Hobby. ¬†I hope other card manufacturers decide to do the same with other sports.

Card of the Day: Drew Brees ’01 Leaf Rookies & Stars Auto

Almost every year there seems to be at least one team that looks like they’ll go undefeated, but it usually doesn’t happen. ¬†I’m 100% sure the Saints and Colts will each lose a game this season and my ’72-’73 Dolphins will be safe for another year. ¬†Brees has a ton of rookies from various products in 2001.

Never underestimate single loose packs

Tonight on the way home I stopped at one of my local card shops because I needed to pick up a ball cube holder.¬† While I was there, I picked up 2 packs of 08 Donruss Classics and 2 packs of 08 Upper Deck Football.¬† The Classics packs yielded a Doak Walker insert #’ed/50 and the Upper Deck ones gave me a Drew Brees and Peyton Manning jerseys.¬† I don’t think thats too bad for 4 packs.
