In the latest ’13 National news…

After August 3rd, one lucky collector will be the owner of this Famous Fabrics Fab Four Redemption quad autographed card.  That’s right.  This is one card with the signatures from all the Beatles members – John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr.  Last year Famous Fabrics included 90 redemption cards within boxes of their Music, Music, Music product.  Each one of these redemption cards contain a serial number, and starting last November Famous Fabrics began announcing 10 numbers every month.  If your redemption card’s serial number was announced, unfortunately you’re not the winner.  As of right now, 10 numbers still remain.  During the 2013 National Sports Collectors Convention Famous Fabrics will eliminate the remaining 9 numbers leaving the last one to the winner.

Has your serial number been called yet?

“Pin-Up” of the Week: 2001 Tiger Woods – What Famous Characters Might Say About Their McDonald’s Fries Promo Pin

Photobucket

What we have here is a promotional pin made by McDonald’s back in 2001.  It features the likeness of Tiger Woods (but it also looks like Obama) accompanied by the phrase “McDonald’s Fries And Me… “Masterful””.  This pin is part of a set called What Famous Characters Might Say About Their McDonald’s Fries.  Other pins in the set feature Captain Kirk, Bill Clinton, Al Gore, Elvis, Mr. T, and James Bond.  Its filled with quite the collection of real and fictional characters.  None of them are that rare, and can easily be bought for $5.00.  I think this is definitely one of McDonald’s coolest promos.

“Pin-Up” of the Week: Taylor Sacks Theismann – Spring Loaded Leg Breaking Pin

Photobucket

November 18, 1985 the Redskins and Giants were playing on Monday Night Football.  This is one of those games that historians will never forget, specially one play.  Washington’s quarterback Joe Theismann was sacked by Lawrence Taylor, and when they both fell to the ground Taylor’s knee drove right into Theismann’s lower right leg.  It was a career ending injury for Theismann.  ESPN viewers voted it the NFL’s “Most Shocking Moment in History”.

I usually never know what Sports Card Info’s “Pin-Up” of the Week will be until the day I decide to post it.  This is by far one of the most entertaining pins I’ve found.  It depicts Taylor sacking Theismann.  Not only that, but Theismann’s lower right leg is on a spring which can be bent in order to reenact the famous break.  This pin is in no way affiliated with the NFL.  There are no team names or logos either, but we all know what play they’re talking about.  These have been known to sell for $10.00 – $20.00.
