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.

Press Pass Announces Michael Sam Autograph Promotion

Unlicensed and pre-draft football products need to do everything they can to garner enough attention before all the other stuff comes out.  For those collectors planning to open 2014 Press Pass Football which releases on March 5, be sure to save the UPC code off the box.  While supplies last, collectors who send in the UPC code off their box of 2014 Press Pass Football will receive a free Michael Sam Press Pass Signings autograph.

To claim your free autograph, send the UPC code along with a hand printed  3″ x 5″ card containing your name, complete address, and e-mail address in an envelope to:

Press Pass Rookie Football 2014 – Michael Sam
9805 NorthCross Center Ct, Suite H
Huntersville, NC 28078

Only one card per envelope mailed separately, while supplies last.  No metered mail.  Limit 1 request per household.  Failure to comply will result in your entry being disqualified.  Only persons receiving a free autograph will be notified.

I’m all for any type of promotion that can get you a free card.  This is purely so they will sell more boxes, and there is nothing wrong with that.  (Que the patriotic music)

Flashback Product of the Week: 1941 Gum, Inc. Uncle Sam/Home Defense

Gum Inc.’s 1941 Uncle Sam/Home Defense set consists of 144 cards.  #1-96 contain images of the main branches throughout the military, and #97-144 illustrate what it might have been like if WWII action had taken place within the United States.

These cards can be found relatively cheap.  They depict some great artwork.  I thought this would be appropriate for Memorial Day.


#66 – Machine Gun Practice
