Bowyer FanFare Auto Contest! – NOW CLOSED

This contest is for a Clint Bowyer 2013 Press Pass FanFare Blue Ink Auto #’ed/25.  It may look familiar because this card was the subject of a contest which was held a few weeks ago, but the winner never came forward.  So it is up for grabs again.  Good luck!!!

2013 Press Pass FanFare Racing Box Break & Review

Design:  photo 4ckflag.jpg

Its sparkly!  The 100-card base set has a starburst design to it and actually looks quite decent.  I think its way better than what they made last year.  Most of the autographs and relics have a similar design.

 photo srss13ff_zps0a9aceed.jpg

Of all the cards in 2013 FanFare Racing, my personal favorite are the Signature Rides autographs.  I think they came out nice and designing them horizontally was the right way to go.  They’ve got that clean background with a faded starburst right behind the boldly colored car.  I enjoy the look of the die-cut autographs too.

Price:  photo 4ckflag.jpg

Boxes are currently selling for $110.00.

“Hit” Quality:  photo 4ckflag.jpg

This is one of the more “hit” driven racing products Press Pass makes.  Every box comes with eight packs, each containing a “hit”.

I pulled the following:

Autos

  • David Reutimann FanFare Blue Ink Autos #’ed/30
  • Kyle Larson FanFare Blue Ink Die-Cut Autos #’ed/99
  • Clint Bowyer FanFare Blue Ink Autos #’ed/25
  • Parker Kligerman FanFare Blue Ink Autos #’ed/125

Relics

  • Tony Stewart Magnificent Materials 2-Color Sheet Metal #’ed/50
  • Jeff Burton Magnificent Materials 2-Color Jumbo Sheet Metal #’ed/25
  • David Ragan Magnificent Materials Firesuit #’ed/199
  • Sam Hornish, Jr Magnificent Materials Sheet Metal #’ed/199

Parallel

  • Elliott Sadler #’ed/25

Die-Cuts

  •  David Ragan #48
  • Kasey Kahne #26
  • Regan Smith #50
  • Brad Keselowski #30
  • Johanna Long #69
  • David Reutimann #49
  • Brian Vickers #77
  • Mark Martin #36

Inserts

  • No. 18 M&M’s Toyota Showtime #4
  • No. 88 National Guard Chevrolet Showtime #9
  • Travis Pastrana Fan Following #8
  • Joey Logano Fan Following #12
  • Austin Dillon Fan Following #15
  • Carl Edwards Fan Following #6
  • Kevin Harvick Fan Following #11
  • Marcos Ambrose Fan Following #13
  • Kasey Kahne Fan Following #9
  • Kyle Busch Fan Following #7
  • Cotton Owens Class of 2013 NASCAR Hall of Fame #156

Overall:  photo 4ckflag.jpg

Overall, I give 2013 FanFare Racing 4 checkered flags out of 5 (1=poor & 5=perfect).  Lots of well designed cards for that NASCAR fan looking for a quite thrill.  I heard that Press Pass is bringing back Five Star Racing sometime this year.  Really looking forward to seeing that.

’13 FanFare Racing Will Have An Exclusive Autograph During This Year’s National

FanFare Racing does deliver more “hits” than any other racing product (8 total), but that doesn’t mean all of them will be winners.  A large portion of the “hits” will be worth a buck or two here and there.  So far I don’t see any stickers like they used for 2013 Ignite and Press Pass plans to bring back Rookie Stripes featuring autographed rookie tape cards.  Also included will be four levels of autographs to collect, plus an exclusive version only found at the 2013 National Sports Collectors Convention in Chicago.  The best type of promo is one that can be integrated into an already existing set.

Press Pass will also be making a 5-card VIP set for this year’s NSCC that includes Danica Patrick, Dale Earnhardt, Jr, Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart, and Jimmie Johnson.  No word yet on whether or not Press Pass will actually be there, but I have a feeling they will be.  Last year they didn’t have a booth because they were moving into a new office.
