2010 Press Pass Portraits Football Preview

Due out in early May, Press Pass will release its first football product that doesn’t contain any NCAA logos.  Each box will have an autograph or relic in every other pack.  From what I’ve seen below, it just looks strange not having any logos.  In my opinion, logos count for a lot.  Let me know what yah think.  Take a look!

Flashback Product of the Week – 2003 Upper Deck Classic Portraits

Its only been 5 years since this product was released, but the whole idea Upper Deck was shooting for never really caught on.  Every box of 2003 Upper Deck Classic Portraits contained 1 jersey, autograph or patch, 3 rookies, and 2 Hall of Fame cards.  The real interesting part about this product was that in every box there was 1 collectible bust.  These busts would be of current or retired players.  If you were lucky you could hit an autographed bust of a good player.  After 2003 you never saw this product come back.  Upper Deck did use the title “Portraits” for a few other sets but they did not include a bust.  Those contained autographed 8×10 photos.  The biggest rookie in the set is probably Brandon Webb.  I think if a company wants to include something like a bust in every box, I would stick with items fans are more familiar with, for example, baseballs, bats, and perhaps even bobbleheads.  I would love to see a product that features a bobblehead per box.  I wonder where Upper Deck even came up with the idea for a bust.  I mean there aren’t any busts of players in the HOF.   Baseball Hall of Famers have plaques.  

P.S.

Apparently having a bobblehead in every box has been done already with the same results as the busts.  I still would like to see them make a comeback.
