Frozen in time is a cool hockey insert set from 2007-08 Trilogy I believe. I'll try to find a link.

Ahhh I see it now on COMC, it was done several years by UD. Not bad, but there's was usually stars of the time, not legends/legendary plays. Plus ours has on card autos. So suck it Upper Deck

2014 Press Pass Football - One of the most anticipated products of the year!

The base set has a beautiful base design and consists of 48 cards of the top players of the upcoming NFL Draft.

These magnificent cards will have multiple parallels, including: Gold, Orange /100, Ruby /50, Team colors /25, printing progressions /4, and the green 1/1, a must have for any player collector.

Team Colors Parallel /25



Green Parallel 1/1



Our subset is a 24 card checklist that showcases some of the most important men on the field - the coaches. This beautifully designed set helps team collectors gain cards of the men who lead their favorite teams.



You and I both know a product cannot be succesful without some ink involved. Each player on the base checklist has an on-card autographed version of their base card, and all of the same parallels as the base set are included in the autograph set.

Team Color parallel auto /25



The coaches need some love too, right? Of course! In this year's Press Pass release, we have included on-card autographed versions of the coaches subset, limited to just 25 copies per card. This 12 card autograph checklist highlights some of the top coaches in college football.





The checklist for the entire master set can be dowloaded as an Excel Spreadsheet here: PRESS PASS SET.xlsx

No need for Ambien tonight. The competition's entry is already putting me to sleep.

I'm sorry, was there a link that I wasn't clicking on? I'd much rather look at our team's exciting and innovative cards than your boring write up. Granted, I didn't read the entire text, but I can't imagine it rivaled the Dark Tower series or even, god forbid, Harry Potter.

Ours had excitement, innovation, excellence, and pictures. Yours? Not so much. I can't decide whether to watch five minutes of Jimmy Fallon or read your team's presentation. Either would knock me out like that (unless The Roots are doing song parodies, ooh, I love it when they do those!).

And like the Dark Tower series, our write up is awesome. For Gilead!

Thanks! I just knew our ideas were so great that my poor shopping skills wouldn't do them justice. I'd rather imagine the awesomeness in detailed writing than show it through my "artistic talents."

I sent this out to my LCS's Press Pass contact rep, or whatever they are called. I will post the results when they get back to me.

I would question any other human being ever if they were saying this, but I would trust the Donald with whatever he says. Hell, he could say he was contacting Meryl Streep or the Pope, and I would believe that our results would be chosen by Meryl Streep or the #@#@#@#@ing Pope!

I'm sure they'll be a huge fan of the other team's visual designs.

Ok I'll weigh in on this then

Ours were concepts that we think would work out with thier new product that's why we didn't make mock ups

Now your "visual" designs look ok BUT it is something that can not be made since Press pass has no NCAA rights so technically worthless

I'm pretty sure downright copying other companies' designs is just as bad, if not worse.

Haha what'd we copy? Are you saying "Frozen in Time?" It's just a name, there have been similarly named sets before. We didn't copy anyone's look, we just used some past sets as references for how we envision our stuff kind of looking.

Yep they were concepts...showing off previous subsets from popular older products and gearing around them (never said they would be just like them)

We were going for those collectors that loved those sets and hopefully would bring a little more people over to the press pass brand

Both teams did a great job overall and it should be very close but I do like our product concept a little more then the others

Well for this task our project manager became the first person to successfully get the permission to NCAA rights by the NCAA organization...A contract was reached and is pending.

I bet the press pass rep might know if this is true or not so hopefully your not telling a lie because that might look pretty bad on your part
