Razor Entertainment’s ’09 National Promos + Exclusive Products

Thanks to VOTC for forwarding me the following info.

This morning I received an e-mail informing me on Razor Entertainment’s promotional events that will be taking place at this year’s National.  Razor has created a new product called Cut Signature National Edition which can only be obtained by dealers who are setting up at the event and buy directly from Razor.  They only plan to make a few cases to act as a preview to their feature cut signature product which is due to come out in December.  Cut Signature National Edition will feature signatures from some of the most famous people in the world ranging from sports, politics, music and film.  Famous celebrities such as John Wayne, John Lennon, Wayne Gretzky and even Michael Jackson are included within this exclusive product only found at this year’s National.  This would be Michael Jackson’s first certified autographed card within a product.


Razor plans to have promotional events taking place at their corporate booth.  If you open any of the following factory sealed boxes you’ll receive a 5-card promo set and 1 bonus card:

  • 2008 Razor Cut Signature Encore Edition

Press Pass ’09 National Promotional Events

This morning I received the following information from Press Pass, Inc on what promotional events will be taking place at their booth during the National this year.

Press Pass Inc. brings back their popular box redemption programs to The National Sports Collectors Convention at the I-X Center in Cleveland, OH, July 29 -August 2. Collectors purchase a hobby box of 2009 Press Pass Eclipse, Premium, or Stealth NASCAR trading cards from a dealer at the show and bring the box to the Press Pass booth (#1041).  Collectors then open the box with a Press Pass representative and share their opinions on the product.  Upon completion, collectors receive a blind-wrapped foil pack that will contain one autograph or dual memorabilia card from a wide variety of popular drivers such as Jeff Gordon, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Kasey Kahne, Tony Stewart, Jimmie Johnson, Kevin Harvick, Carl Edwards, and Mark Martin.

New for 2009 is a daily “box wars” promotion involving the most upscale release in NASCAR trading card history: Press Pass Showcase. Collectors can bring their 3-pack Showcase boxes to the Press Pass booth each day at the designated time for a group box break (Wed. 7:00p, Thurs. & Fri. 2:00p, Sat. 12:00p & 2:00p). At each “box wars” session, collectors will vie for exclusive “1 of 1” race-used memorabilia cards (1 winner per session) plus be entered into a drawing for an unbelievable grand prize of a limited edition NASCAR 50th Anniversary Lithograph signed by 34 of NASCAR’s 50 greatest drivers. The lithograph, which measures 25” x 39” and has an estimated value of over $5,000, will be on display at the booth. The winner of the lithograph will be chosen on Saturday immediately after the 2:00 box break.

Press Pass has also announced that they are producing exclusive 2009 Press Pass Legends Football cards for an exciting wrapper redemption promotion at The National.  Each collector who opens one 6-pack mini-box of 2009 Legends Football at the Press Pass booth will receive a special National-exclusive base card parallel featuring red foil stamping and sequential numbering to only 5! Each card will be blind-wrapped in an opaque silver foil pack. Each player in the set will be available, including legends featured in their collegiate uniforms such as John Elway, Deion Sanders, Tony Dorsett, Rod Woodson, Frank Gifford, Bruce Smith, Lawrence Taylor, Bill Cowher, Dan Fouts, Fran Tarkenton, Sam Huff, Doug Williams, Kellen Winslow, Boomer Esiason, Dave Casper, Mike Alstott, Kirk Herbstreit, Lee Corso, Tom Jackson, John Brodie, Paul Hornung, Bob Lilly, Dick Anderson, Jim Kiick, Cliff Branch, Charley Taylor, Randall Cunningham, Bernie Kosar, and Ozzie Newsome, along with outstanding 2009 rookies like Mark Sanchez, Matthew Stafford, Michael Crabtree and Knowshon Moreno.

Collectors will also find Legends Football “Saturday Signatures” randomly inserted in place of the red foil parallels.


When I attended the National two years ago I really enjoyed visiting the Press Pass booth.  I opened a bunch of Press Pass Legends mini boxes, pulled some great autographs, and in return was given a silver pack with a parallel numbered to 10 inside.  This year it looks like the parallel will be numbered to 5 and if your lucky contain an autograph.  Taking part in the promotional events is one of the best things about the National.

When I opened one of my mini boxes of Press Pass Legends at their booth during the ’07 National I got shorted an autograph.  Press Pass’s representitives were very helpful and in a few weeks they sent me a Paul Hornung autograph.

Dinner With Former Penn State Stars


On Thursday April 23, 2009 former Penn State stars Blair Thomas, Kenny Jackson, Shane Conlan, and D.J. Dozier will be in Lycoming county to benefit the United Way.  There will be a dinner and time to get autographs/photos with the athletes.  I plan on attending so I can share the photos here on Sports Card Info.  This is the first year that Penn State has agreed to do this and it sounds great.

Over the next few months, Sports Card Info will be attending the following events:

Throughout the summer I will be attending a few minor league games as well.  I would also like attend a Little League World Series game too.  In Williamsport, PA they have a really good Little League World Series Museum, which I visited many years ago and would like to go back to get some photos.  This is going to be a busy year for Sports Card Info, so be sure to keep checking back for pictures of all the events.

Looking Ahead in 2009

2009 will be a fun and busy year for Sports Card Info.  There will be a lot of events to attend, and boxes to break.  In early 2009, Sports Card Info will hold its very first contest that I think all readers will enjoy.  More information on the contest will come in the near future.  As for now, check out the list of events that Sports Card Info will be attending in 2009:
