Id love to see either a Vince McMahon/Stone Cold or Bret Hart/Shawn Michaels dual auto. I like the Ted turner idea as well though.

How about Arnold Swartneggar (spelling?), for bodybuiling. Bill Kazmaier, World's Strongest Man.

Arnold has said "no" to us four years in a row, but we won't stop trying.

We have had Franco Columbo, Ronnie Coleman and Lou Ferrigno in our first four series.

Persistence pays off, as you’ve proven time and time again in Sportkings!! Hopefully one day Arnold will realize that his longtime friend Franco Columbu had a successful experience with Sportkings, and there’s no reason that he shouldn’t let himself be represented as well!

Speaking of being represented in Sportkings… when I was a kid, I used to sit in front of the TV and impersonate Harry Kalas calling a Mike Schmidt home run, when Mike was at-bat… Sometimes he’d actually hit a home run and it would play out exactly as I called it, which was pretty amazing to me at the time.

Anyway… I found myself watching the Broncos / Vikings game on Sunday, trying to once again use my “powers” to help Brian Dawkins get an interception / TD return! He didn’t have an interception, but he did get a sack & forced fumble!! Not bad for a 38 year old safety who is still the heart & soul of any defense that he plays on! I think he’s a king just for non-physical force that he brings to a team!
Somebody put an awful lot of time into an analysis of Brian Dawkins 3 years ago:
NFL Forum :: - Brian Dawkins: The Case for the Hall of Fame
Sounds pretty impressive to me!

But this is even better:
NFL Videos: Super Power

Brian Dawkins is my football Sportking, and I’d love to see him featured in Sportkings!

Default IMHO...

Dr. Price,
I've been a casual buyer of all the different series of SportKings. Something that bugs me with many company's jersey cards is when pinstripes run horizontal. It may be me but I just can't have a Yankee jersey piece going horizontal. It goes against the nature of the uniform.
It may be too late for Series E but please point that out to the people in the art dept. for Series F. Seems simple enough to rotate it before sealing.

Best Always,
VinnyH

That's a really good point although the 2005 Absolute Babe Ruth jumbo has considerably more value for 2 horizontal pinstripes than 2 vertical. Odd.

Would love to see some Jeff Bagwell autos in future products, not sure if he's been in SK in the past, but he doesn't have very many autos out there.

I know I'm late to the party, but I'd LOVE a Francis Ouimet cut for what it's worth. The suggestion of Greg Norman and/or Tom Watson is FANTASTIC as well!

I've heard May of 2012, but don't think that's set in stone.

The ouimet auto would be cool. Maybe a triple cut with the two guys he played against!

Steve Van Buren - He just turned 91 I believe so maybe he doesn't want to be bothered but there are not many of his auto'd cards out there. Would be happy to get another nice auto of his with maybe a game used jersey swatch as well. Pretty sure there aren't many, if any game used cards of him.

Lynn Swann - another card I'd want from someone who doesn't sign much. A nice auto patch of his would be highly sought after by Steelers collectors.

Fred Shero - probably a task asking for more than a cut auto or two but even a game used item would be huge with Flyers fans.

Ted Ray and Harry Vardon. That card would be AMAZING! I could also go for a dual of Ouimet and Eddie Lowery... Ohhh the possibilities!

We are going to make a big announcement on Series E at the Summit Industry Show in Las Vegas.

Mock-ups, checklists, card back premiums and lots more. Series E will rock.

Release date is May 4th.

Hope this helps.
