Default (sage Football To Hit Early)

(SAGE FOOTBALL TO HIT EARLY)

Wow, is it time for football again? It certainly is as Sage is releasing its first football product of 2008 a full month before the NFL draft in April. The March release of Hit Football The Low Series will feature the rookies in the draft.

(New look from SAGE for 2008)

Football has come full circle from the 1950's to be the key competitor with baseball cards. More collectors are jumping on the football bandwagon as the leading fall sport. Basketball this year despite a strong rookie crop, has not done as well. The NFL licensed releases will debut around June with Topps Draft Picks and Prospects, Playoff Prestige and a release from Upper Deck.

IF you officially declare, doesnt that effect your eligibility (maybe allowing for some "gray area" for Sage to produce cards)? Are sage cards licenced by the NFL or by college football?

I don't think Sage is licensed by the NFL, only NCAA. That's why they can show the college team/logo.

I bet you they are printing the cards of all the seniors and the juniors that have declared for the NFL.

Then the "high" numbered series would be the ones they didn't get the first time.

Just my opinion.
