Default 2011 Press Pass Showcase Racing 2011 Updates

Press Pass Showcase Racing 2011 Updates
7/5/2011 -

As the competition heats up in one of the most exciting season in recent NASCAR history, Press Pass is prepared to unleash one of its most exciting trading card sets of the year. Since its debut in 2009, Press Pass Showcase has become a favorite among collectors. By delivering one autograph or memorabilia card from one of the world’s top race car drivers in each pack, Press Pass Showcase offers exceptional value and some of the most exciting cards ever created. In 2011, Press Pass Showcase has been finely tuned to perfection with some exciting additions and changes to the set.



Perhaps the most notable change to the Press Pass Showcase set this year is the new and improved premium card stock. The 61 card base set, as well as the race-used memorabilia and autographed race-used memorabilia cards, is printed on an upscale double-rainbow metalized stock. The sharp edges, rigid frame, and finely polished spectrums of color coupled with an exceptional design make for a high-end set that is worthy of a showroom.



Press Pass Showcase is set to roll off the showroom later this month. Check PressPassInc.com for more updates and information as the live date approaches.

Does anyone think the base cards will sell well from this. I'm interested in keeping the hits and defraying the cost with the singles. Any opinions. I usually don't deal in racing so I'm trying to understand the market. Thanks.

The base cards are all numbered, as are the inserts, and they do sell well initially.

I'm hosting a hit draft group break of this and it's only $13.75/slot. Check it out:

I'm in for a master case. Try out racing for a change. I hope the value is there with this. It seems nice but I've been fooled before.

If you don't know where and how to sell this and price it right it is a bloodbath... If you have never sold any racing before and Ebay is your only outlet for these pieces then I don't think that you will do well.

Best of luck

I only bought two boxes, but I'm looking at a loss of around $150. I was into my boxes for $300 total, so I'm losing half which I guess isn't too bad.

This product isn't as strong as last year's was.
