Here it is folks.  The official statement released by Press Pass today.  In short, NO redemptions will be honored and NO replacements will be issued for damaged cards.  No official word yet when or if NASCAR fans will see their next trading card set.

We’re disappointed to announce that Press Pass, Inc. is closing the day to day operations, effective immediately.  Accounting and legal resources are in place to conduct a reasonable closure of the business should that be the end result.

We apologize but no redemptions, damages etc. will be honored.  We are very thankful for the years of support from all of our customers and consumers.  Over the past 22 years we’ve strived to produce compelling products that serve the interests of our end consumers.  While it has not always been perfect, we have truly enjoyed our successes, and the relationships we’ve built with so many who share our passion for trading cards.  Our hope now is that our paths will cross again soon.

Warmest Regards,

The Press Pass Staff

Mastro Auctions Responds

A few days ago I sent an e-mail to the customer service department of Mastro Auctions.  I asked them, “What does Mastro Auctions have to say about what happened at the 2008 National and the FBI showing up?”  Today I got this response, “Andrew, At this time no comment, a statement will be made later this month.”  I wonder what they will say in their statement?  I can imagine that I’m not the only person that has sent them an e-mail asking what is going on.
