Sportkings Adds New ’12 NSCC Promo + Paterno Card Pulled

Photobucket

Sportkings has added an additional element to their 2012 National Sports Collectors Convention Premium Back Redemption Program.  Any collector that spells the word “SPORTKINGS” using the Premium Back base cards found in Series E twenty-five times can have Jared Kelley paint them their own giant art card.  This card will measure 2.5′ x 3.5′ and can be of your favorite Sportking.  Personally, I’d pick Harry Kalas 🙂

Sportkings has also announced they will be pulling the Joe Paterno art card from their Premium Back Redemption Program.  At this time, they didn’t think it would be good to include it due to the Penn State scandal.

Here are some of the other art cards you can obtain by spelling the word “SPORTKINGS” five times.

Paterno’s Press Pass Card Surfaces

This has to be one of the most valuable and rare Press Pass base cards ever created.  Press Pass had to pull this Paterno card early during the manufacturing process and only a few found their way out onto the secondary market.  Many had to be destroyed due to a licensing conflict.  If your very lucky you might pull one from a box of ’97 Press Pass Football.  Its not too often that one pops up for sale, so thats why I decided I would show it to you.  One recently sold for just over $50.00.  Thats not too bad for just being a base card.
