2009 Press Pass Legends Football
While some people may view Legends Football 2009 as just another football release, there are many unique autographs in the product that should pique collectors’ interest.
While the checklist features many different players than we had last year (a good thing), there are actually numerous Legends on this list who will sell as well as or better than some of the 2nd tier names last year (Young, Kelly, Moon, etc.).
Obviously, John Elway is a huge name, but Deion Sanders sells like a skill position player and this will be his 1st FSU card which should bump up his value. Rod Woodson has had one certified autograph and it sold incredibly well (BV over $100), and this is also his HOF induction year. Bill Cowher's last 2 autograph cards have booked for over $100 each. Doug Williams hasn't signed a certified autograph in 7 years and his last sold on the level of Steve Young - he's had numerous offers to sign for companies during that time, but has passed until this deal, including on offers we've made to him the past 3 years. Mike Alstott hasn't signed in 6 years, and his last autograph sold on the level of Jim Kelly.
Tony Dorsett, Lawrence Taylor, Dan Fouts are all HOF players who sell well, easily surpassing the Moon's of the world, and we're delivering the 1st collegiate autograph cards of other HOF's such as: Sam Huff, Dick Anderson, Kellen Winslow, Dave Casper, Bobby Mitchell & Charley Taylor. We're also delivering HOF autographs from Fran Tarkenton, Ozzie Newsome, Paul Hornung, Paul Warfield, Bob Lilly & John Brodie.
We've freshened up the checklist with tons of names not previously in the product, who will sell much better than expected. Kirk Herbstreit, Lee Corso, & Tom Jackson are all huge personalities on ESPN - Herbie (Ohio St. boy) has only signed for TK Legacy & Corso has never signed, and Jackson hasn't signed in 6 years (he's not a fan of signing) and only took part because of the Louisville tie-in. Boomer Esiason is obviously on CBS now and still sells well as a previous star QB. Ricky Watters was a key piece to Notre Dame's last National Championship team in 1988. Finally, Jim Kiick was obviously a key cog for the undefeated Dolphins team, Cliff Branch for the Raiders champs in the 70's & 80's, Bernie Kosar hasn't signed a U of Miami card before, and Gary Beban was a Heisman winner from UCLA we haven't been able to confirm before.
While the checklist may not match a product like Topps Magic in the "name value" of the checklist box-to-box, our product is going to deliver more quality autographs, guaranteed. Consumers will pull more on-card autographs of the big name rookies (Sanchez, Stafford, Crabtree, Moreno, etc.) and retired guys from our product than from any of our competitors.
And for clarification every player on the checklist (Legend's wise) does have an autograph in the product. Not just the Legends of the Fall roster.
Each box will contain one of the following rookie autographs. All the big names:
In addition we've now added ONE additional autograph per box.
