Slated for a June 19th release Press Pass proudly announces the newest member of its football family – Gameday Gallery.  This product will feature (4) autographs per box all serial numbered to 199 or less.  As you can see, these cards will have an artistic look to them.  For a product that doesn’t contain any logos I actually think they look pretty good.  I like the way cards look when the manufacturer uses the filters on their photography software to make the cards look as if they’ve been painted.  This just might be one of Press Pass’s nicer looking football sets.  At least it looks different compared to some of their other football products.  Gameday Gallery almost have an Inception or Valor look.

“Pin-Up” of the Week: GameDay Super Bowl Card Show Pin


Anyone remember GameDay?  They were the manufacturer of those really tall cards back in the early 90’s.  GameDay has been out of business for quite sometime now, and most of their cards aren’t worth two pennies, but in 1993 they were one of the main sponsors of the Super Bowl Card Show.  That year the Cowboys beat the Bills in Super Bowl XXVII 52-17.  Troy Aikman was named the MVP.  Most of the major card companies had pins made for this event.  Recently a bunch of different pins from this era have popped-up for sale.  One pin sold for $13.00.

Flashback Product of the Week: 1992 GameDay

When I was on a trip to Ohio back in 1998 I remember stopping at a card shop and picking up a bunch of these packs because I thought they looked so unusual.  These are 1992 GameDay football cards and, well, I’m not going to be the first one to say this, but they are hard to find holders for.  GameDay cards are slightly longer than the standard trading card.  They didn’t stick around too long, only for a few years.  I think they disappeared because collectors had a hard time finding a place to keep them.  Top loaders, album pages, and standard white cardboard boxes won’t hold these cards unless you lie them down.  They are cool to look at, but this is one product I don’t see coming back anytime soon.
