FORGOTTEN: 2003 Playoff Hogg Heaven

Here is our NEW segment on Sport Card Collectors. This segment is not about the players per say, its more about the cards and design. We will focus our efforts on bringing you brands you may have forgotten about over time. Sports for these products will include basketball, football and baseball products.

Not only is this a popular insert, but back in 2003 Playoff created a whole product based around it. Every hobby box contained 3 game used and autographs and 5 leather cards. I found the leather cards to be very cool innovation. And you can actually smell it. And don't tell me you don't smell your cards as well. Who doesn't?

Most memorabilia in the product is numbered and printed on the leather cards. Inserts as well.

Every hobby box also had 20 packs per box and 5 cards per pack. We don't have a box price on this product.

The design is very well done with the football bump appeal and the team logo hidden behind the player. The player also being in full color jumps off from the cardboard. The rookies appear as Rookie Premier materials or plain like the base cards. Some key players Willis McGahee, Carson Palmer, Ken Hamlin, Kelley Washington among others.

Let us know if you had Forgotten about this product or had collected it. Also give us your thoughts on the base card design, as we stated above, its very unique and eye catchy.
