Futera To Launch Limited Edition Memorabilia Card Presentation Sets

Futera is one of those card companies I wish collectors in the United States would pay more attention to.  This company makes some awesome looking cards.  Here in the U.S., we have new card products coming out all the time.  Futera is the total opposite.  They produce a handful of high-quality card sets each year.

The collector services that Futera offers is incredible.  Every time I talk about this company, I have to mention their Code for Collectors and Memorabilia Colour Grading services.  Code for Collectors enables you to see the detailed process of how your favorite memorabilia card came to be.  Memorabilia Colour Grading is a service in which you can use to tell how many 1-color, 2-color, 3-color, etc… relic cards were made of a specific card.  This is very helpful when it comes to cracking down on fake patches.  U.S. collectors would love to have services such as these.

Futera is preparing to launch it’s latest round of products.  This time its all about a series of Limited Edition Memorabilia Card Presentation Sets.

  • There is a total of (10) quality football (soccer) memorabilia cards in each set, comprising a complete 9-player memorabilia card set plus an ultra-rare centerpiece memorabilia card of one of the featured players.
  • The release features game-used and training-used memorabilia – information about the player’s memorabilia is written on the back of the card.
  • Every card features a 24ct gold-plated element framing the player’s memorabilia.
  • Each card is individually foil numbered and has a unique security code.
  • Enter card codes on the FUTERA APP to digitally sort and store the cards in an online Card Album and get information about the rarity and features of each card and Portfolio/card values based on actual card sales (powered by PriceGuide.cards).  These are free information services active shortly after the launch.

Manchester City FC (10 sets), Liverpool FC (29 sets for each title), and World Football (27 sets for each title) cover this new product.  Each set cost $499.  According to Futera, the Liverpool FC sets are completely sold out already.  Sets should start shipping near the end of the month.

Sports Card Album Launch Contest! – NOW CLOSED

 photo logo_white_zps38be8a22.jpg

Sports Card Album has officially launched and collectors from all over the world are uploading their collections to the site.  Now collectors have a site specifically designed by them and for them to meet all of their collecting needs.  The best thing about it… you can use it directly from your smartphone and other mobile devices.  I’m already using it.  This morning I uploaded my entire Harry Kalas collection for the world to see.  Be sure to follow Sports Card Info on Sports Card Album too.  I love the idea of being able to follow other collectors and see what they add.  Collectors have been wondering what the future of this great hobby will be, and I believe Sports Card Album is going to play a major part in it.

Sports Card Info was chosen as an official blogging partner for this launch.  That comes with some great perks, meaning I get to give stuff away.  Sergio from Sports Card Album sent over a package with all kinds of stuff in it.

This contest will be for the sealed Sports Card Album envelope you see pictured below.  I have no clue what is inside.  All I know is that its heavy with cards.

In order to be eligible for this contest, all you need to do is comment on this post, and follow Sports Card Info @sportscardinfo and Sports Card Album @sportscardalbum on Twitter.  You can enter once per day.  Just come back to this post and comment for your multiple entries.  This contest will end on Tuesday, July 16, 2013 at 8:00 p.m.  Good luck!!!
