Leaf’s CEO, Brian Gray, is not one to hold back when it comes to voicing his opinion on what he thinks needs to be done in order to make the hobby better.  Collectors attending the NSCC can keep an eye out for some exclusive Brian Gray autographed cards featuring fun inscriptions.  If you’ve got something cool your looking to sell, Leaf might be interested.  They’re giving away prizes to those people who sell them a card.

2013 Press Pass Platinum Cuts Inscription Edition Preview – Do We Really Need Another Cut Signature Driven Product?

I have to be honest.  The hobby doesn’t need another all cut signature driven product.  Panini, Leaf, TRISTAR, and Historic Autographs already do plenty of them.  We don’t need another.  Is there a spot for them?  Sure.  But just because a few companies do something doesn’t mean you have to join in.  Competition is good for collectors, but when it comes to cut signature products you’re not really competing for much.  When an entire product is based on the signature itself, design goes straight out the window.  Nobody gives two cents about the border design or if the card is encapsulated in a Beckett holder.  With each release the market gets flooded with the same signatures.  Of course they all contain cards we would love to pull, but the chances of that happening are slim to none.

Photobucket

2013 Press Pass Platinum Cuts Inscription Edition is Press Pass’s first venture with a cut signature product.  With 2,000 “1 of 1” cuts in an already saturated market, I’m sorry to say I don’t see this going too far.  I also don’t think cut signatures should be made of people that are still living.  Personally, I’d like to see some fancy insert cards made of these people.  Do something different.

Leaf’s Bringing Lombardi’s First Relics To Collectors With Lombardi Legacy

Photobucket

Leaf just released the sales sheet for 2012 Lombardi Legacy and all I can say is WOW!!!  Every box will come with (4) base cards, (2) inscription autographs, and (1) Vince Lombardi worn jacket relic card.  Up until now, Lombardi hasn’t had any relic cards.  Leaf will also be randomly inserting redemption cards that can be redeemed for a Vince Lombardi signed check.

Let’s recap:

  • (4) base cards
  • (2) inscription autographs – every autographed card in the set has an inscription
  • (1) Vince Lombardi worn jacket relic card
  • Randomly inserted redemptions that can be redeemed for signed Lombardi checks

This product looks absolutely amazing, and it doesn’t even have an NFL license.  This is exactly how a non-licensed product should be done.  To have a successful non-licensed product the manufacturer must approach the product with an open mind and a unique perspective.  No cookie cutter products from Leaf.

Press Pass ’12 Racing Inscription Quantity List

  • Jimmie  Johnson – 5X Champ (5 Silver, 2 Red, 3 Blue)
  • Mark Martin – #5 (10 Silver)
  • Paul Menard –  Burn Rubber (4 Silver), Thunder and Lightning plus hands (5 Silver)
  • David Reutimann – Beak (5 Silver, 5 Red)
  • Tony Stewart – Smoke (10 Sig Series Shoe)

Forged Inscriptions

Inscriptions are a fun way to make autographs more collectible.  These inscriptions can range from a funny nickname to a high achievement such as MVP or ROY.  But there is a darker side to the inscription world.  Scammers will take a simple autographed card, and add in their own inscription thinking it will increase its value.  Thats why its always a good idea to check with the manufacturer to see which cards have inscriptions and how many were made.

The CJ Spiller card below is a great example of someone adding their own inscription.  When compared to some of his other inscriptions, you can clearly see the handwriting differences.  Plus the ink on the inscription is much lighter.  Most of the time, inscription autographs usually appear with on-card signatures.  Probably because it allows for more room to write.  Rarely will you find an inscription on a sticker autograph.  In this hobby, not only are the signatures forged.

2010 Press Pass Draft Pick Football Red Ink / Inscription List

I know this was posted last Friday, but you wouldn’t believe the amount of people that I’ve heard complaining that they have had to go to Beckett’s site to read the list.  Well, now you don’t have to.

There are two companies I predict will go out of business soon.  Those companies would be Beckett and Upper Deck.  Beckett is totally meaningless because of the blogs, and Upper Deck has financial troubles.  I’d rather see Upper Deck stick around 🙂

A Little Autograph Help Is Needed

For a long time now I have been getting autographs on various baseball bats while attending shows and other events.  This morning I decided to sit down and make a list of every autograph on each bat just to have some kind of a record.  I probably should have done this while getting the autographs but never did.  I came across one autograph that I cannot identify.  Maybe you can help.  Here is a picture:

Photobucket

I went through 35 different signatures and this is the only one I can’t remember.  Anyone have any ideas who the mystery autograph might be?

Here is a list of all the autographs I have on my bats:

  • Tom McCarthy
  • Milt Thompson
  • Dickie Noles
  • Frank Howard x2
  • Bobby Shantz
  • Harry Kalas
  • Dick Allen
  • Gene Garber x2
  • Brooks Robinson
  • Jay Johnstone
  • Clete Boyer
  • Mickey Morandini x2
  • Bob Feller x2
  • Willie Fordham
  • Bill Mazeroski
  • Pat Zachry
  • Mike Hargrove x2
  • Pete Rose
  • Lou Marson
  • Lee May
  • Johnny Bench
  • Todd Pratt
  • Andre Thornton
  • Greg Luzinski
  • George Scott
  • Roger Craig

  • Tom Herr
  • J.A. Happ
