Here are some details about the new 2011 SAGE Autographed product, which is due to hit hobby shelves today. Keep in mind, this information was released directly by SAGE Collectibles and as such, First and Goal Sportscards does not guarantee any card seedings or box break results.
SAGE Autographed Football 2011 is breaking new ground. In the history of trading cards there has never been an autographed-card-per-pack product issued BEFORE the draft of the players featured inside. SAGE Autographed Football 2011, arriving at distributors on Tuesday, April 26 will be the first, launching days before the April 28-30 draft. The product will feature one authentic autographed card inserted into every pack – without any redemptions. Collectors will be able to pull the limited Platinum Level (#’d 50), Gold Level (#’d to 200) and Silver and Red levels (both not #’d). In addition they’ll find randomly inserted much rarer autographed cards including Master Edition 1/1 Autographed Cards, Triple Autographed Cards (#’d to 5) featuring three authentic autographs per card (such as the National Champions card featuring Cam Newton, Nick Fairley and Mario Fannin), and Aspire Autographed Cards (#’d to 5) of the top 8 skill position players in the draft (Cam Newton, Blaine Gabbert, Jake Locker, Ryan Mallett, Christian Ponder, AJ Green, Julio Jones and Mark Ingram).
But that’s not all, if all goes as expected it won’t be long on April 28th before the name Cam Newton is called. It’s with that in mind that SA-GE Collectibles, Inc. has included the innovative “Draft Cam” insert (#’d to only 11 each) and autographed cards (#’d to only 2 each!).
