The Return of Pen Pals! from 2007 National Treasures FB
The Return of Pen Pals!
Donruss officials on Friday afternoon leaked additional information regarding the highly anticipated 2007 Playoff National Treasures product, due out in late January; and for fans of the company's venerable Pen Pals concept, it's shaping up to be a happy new year indeed.
It was first announced exclusively in the October 2007 issue of Beckett Football that Pen Pals would be returning. On Friday, more information was revealed. For starters, the all-rookie set will include eight duals, two triples and four quads -- and every card in the set will be hard-signed.
"We knew we could not just sit on the success that Treasures had in '06," says Donruss Senior Football Brand Manager Ben Ecklar. "We listened to collectors' requests for more on-card autographs and felt this was one of the most popular on-card inserts we have ever created. With the popularity and value these singles have on the secondary market, it made perfect sense for Pen Pals to make their return here in Treasures."
