Michael Sam Mail Call

Look what the mail man dropped off today.  Its my Michael Sam 2014 Press Pass Blue Ink Auto #’ed/50.  While supplies last Press Pass will send these out to collectors who mail in the UPC code off their box of 2014 Press Pass Football.  I’m not sure how they determine who gets one numbered to 10, 50, 99, or just the base.  It could be random or perhaps the earlier people to send in their code might get a lower numbered card.  I sent mine in about a week after the product was released.  It sure didn’t take long to arrive.

Ashburn Mail

This is one of my favorite cards to come out of ’10 Panini Century Collection.  Most Ashburn cards feature him as a player, but this one pictures him as a broadcaster with Veteran’s Stadium in the background.  Its a great example of Panini using unique photos to make their cards more interesting.  This card just arrived in the mail, and I have it sitting on my shelf next to other Phillies stuff.

Now, if I can just get someone to make a Harry Kalas relic.


Blank Sports Cards

Here is an interesting idea.  These are blank baseball cards that you can use to get signed in person.  There are a whole bunch of different designs for a wide variety of sports.  I guess these would look a little better than an autograph over a picture that you may not be able to see.  I’m not too sure how long they have been around, but its a great idea for the in person and by the mail autograph seekers.  Another upside about using something like this, is that you don’t have to mail out one of your own cards and having to worry about losing it.  Very good idea!!!
