Default (pele Joins Sportkings Series B)

(PELE JOINS SPORTKINGS SERIES B)

There is going to be a Series B of the high end recently released Sport Kings. The project, released by a new company run by Dr. Brian Price, felt the first series of the average $400 per pack product was successful enough to warrant a second. The big name in the second series barring any news announcements will be Pele.

"The first athlete is international soccer star and sports icon, Pele," said Dr. Price. "An athlete who is arguably the greatest player in the history of the game of soccer."

UFC Champion Randy Courture and Soft Ball star Jenny Finch are among the others signing cards for Series B.

Default Sportkings Series B release date!

Just got this in my inbox

Dr. Brian H. Price of Sport Kings LP is pleased to announce that the formal release date for Series B will be July 24, 2008.

The revival of the Sport Kings brand continues with the release of Series B. A tremendous line-up of the world's greatest athletes will be featured including: Joe Montana-Football, Pele-Soccer, Randy Couture-UFC, Roy Jones Jr.-Boxing, Arnold Palmer-Golf, Ron Turcotte-Horse Racing, Hakeem Olajuwon-Basketball and Bode Miller-Skiing to name a few.

Series B will feature more hard-signed autograph cards and more limited game-used memorabilia. Game-used memorabilia cards will be more limited than Series A.

Hey now, some of us liked it and made money on it. Sorry you didn't like it. Time will tell if it's "garbage" or not. I sincerely doubt it will ever earn that name.

Expensive, yes. I don't know how you can call Sportkings garbage though. Perhaps a tad overpriced, but then again you get some bang for your buck. Garbage would be 1988 Topps baseball... stuff like that. Series B actually looks a lot better than I anticipated considering the athletes.
