For all you history buffs attending the National, Famous Fabrics has something special for you.  Collectors opening a 10-box case of Horrors of War II at the Famous Fabrics booth will receive a coupon for a special 1/1 Art Relic card of their choice that will be made after the show.  Collectors can choose a personality they would like sketched on the card and Famous Fabrics will add an authentic relic from the corresponding conflict.  This promotion is another high-end one for collectors to take part in.  A 10-box case of Horrors of War II can run just over $2,000.00.

Famous Fabrics Fab Four Redemption Up For Grabs During The ’13 National

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

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.

This George Washington Art Card Is Going To Cost You $$$$

Photobucket

There is no doubt that the two most expensive products on the market to break right now are Famous Fabrics 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and Leaf’s Oval Office.  Neither one deals with sports in any way.  Both products are very limited and cost around $1,500.00 each.  Given the current economic conditions, I’m surprised we are seeing products like this being released.  They sure aren’t for your average collector.

I have to admit, Famous Fabrics has the better product.  Normally I would side with Leaf, but not this time.  Oval Office has (1) Presidential cut signature per box.  That’s it.  1600 Pennsylvania Avenue on the other hand has (1) Presidential cut signature, (1) non-Presidential cut signature, and (4) base cards each numbered to 10 per box.  For around the same price, you can obviously see 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue has much more to offer.

Another fun thing Famous Fabrics is doing is rewarding the first collector that puts together the entire 96-card 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue base set.  This first collector to do this will receive the George Washington 1/1 Hand-Painted Art card by Jared Kelley.  Kelley’s work can be found in Sports Kings and he was behind the Presidential Art cards found in Goodwin Champions.  They look absolutely amazing and collectors spend big bucks on them.  This base set won’t be an easy or cheap one to complete.  Having each base card limited to 10 copies really drives the price up.  Base cards have been selling anywhere from a low of $10.00 to over a high of $250.00+.  Get ready to spend some major $$$$ 🙂

Collectors that come in second, third, and fourth putting together the 96-card base set will receive 1/3 reproductions of the George Washington Hand-Painted Art card.
