In the latest ’13 National news…

After August 3rd, one lucky collector will be the owner of this Famous Fabrics Fab Four Redemption quad autographed card.  That’s right.  This is one card with the signatures from all the Beatles members – John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr.  Last year Famous Fabrics included 90 redemption cards within boxes of their Music, Music, Music product.  Each one of these redemption cards contain a serial number, and starting last November Famous Fabrics began announcing 10 numbers every month.  If your redemption card’s serial number was announced, unfortunately you’re not the winner.  As of right now, 10 numbers still remain.  During the 2013 National Sports Collectors Convention Famous Fabrics will eliminate the remaining 9 numbers leaving the last one to the winner.

Has your serial number been called yet?

The 2010 NFL Draft Puzzle Pin

The 2010 NFL Draft has come to a close, but it’s collectibles are just starting to surface.  As a large collector of sports pins, I was looking to see if I could find the same pin the announcers were wearing on ESPN.  So far, I haven’t had much luck.  Instead, I’ve stumbled upon the pins below that were given out to people that attended the Draft.  Each day of the Draft, a new pin was given out to 4,000 people.  When all the pins are put together they form Radio City Music Hall.

Pins are highly collectible within the sports memorabilia market.  I’d love to see a manufacturer insert pins into cards somehow.  Especially ones from specific events like the NFL Draft, Super Bowl, and the World Series.



Michael Jackson Trading Cards

In today’s hobby, its not that common to see an entire product based on a single individual.  You might see it done with a certain team, but rarely with one person.  Back in the 80’s, manufacturers made all kinds of trading card sets for specific celebrities including Michael Jackson.  In 1984 Topps released a set based around the pop icon.  Each box contains 36 wax packs with 3 cards and 3 stickers per pack.  Later that year Topps released a 2nd series based around Jackson.  In a way these could be considered his “rookie” cards.  I would highly suggest not purchasing anything of Jackson right now because the prices are through the roof.  It would be better to wait until things calm down.

Currently Jackson has no relic or autographed cards floating around the secondary market.  With all those colorful outfits he wore, I’m sure they would make for some interesting relics to pull.  R.I.P the King of Pop.

I was reading all kinds of space and time continuance stuff, and it was all swirling around my head. I started to think what happens if you’re an astronaut and you leave, how long could you stay in love?”
