“Pin-Up” of the Week: 1996 Atlanta Olympics UPS Worldwide Pin

Photobucket

The hobby would be a crappy place if it weren’t for the USPS, UPS, and FedEx.  Collectors have been depending on these companies for years so they could get that one last card for their collection.  Distributors rely on them so they can get those boxes on their shelves.  Its always exciting to see a box sitting on your front porch.

This pin was made for the 1996 Atlanta Olympics and as you can see UPS was a sponsor.  Its not worth a whole lot.  Just a couple of bucks.

FCB Tazawa 2010 National Promo Mock-Ups

FreedomCardboard.com shared the following mock-up card images of Boston Red Sox prospect Junichi Tazawa.  Tazawa will be signing autographs at the FCB booth during this year’s National in Baltimore.  The following cards will be made available as promos.  Granted these are just mock-ups, and there is a lot of time for things to change, I think they look really good.  I like how each background features some element of Baltimore.
