Panini's FLAWLESS ACTING Debuts!

How do you get collectors excited about a product that costs $1250? You create a one-of-a-kind catchy video to grab collector's attentions. If you haven't seen it yet here it is:

 

I wanted to post this because I really enjoyed the video. It was something different that no other company has attempted. And though it's not a product I would ever be able to afford, I like how they went outside the box to promote it. Shout out to Tracy Hackler and crew from Panini's Marketing team for always being creative and finding ways to catch collector's attentions.

Let us know your thoughts on the video. Did it catch your attention?

Select Returns To Football For 2013

Panini released early images and early info on the return of Select Football. The last time any of us saw Select football was in 1996 so it has been quite sometime. I am glad to see Panini dig back into Pinnacle/Donruss past and bring back some of my favorite 90's products.

2013 Select Football Brady 
Tom Brady is what the base cards will appear like.

2013 Select Football Manuel  
The design for the base cards seems to carry over to their rookie patch/autos and 

2013 Select Football Peyton 
 to the signature cards in the product as well.

Select Football will deliver Prizm type technology throughout the product and four autographs, four Prizms, six inserts, four Rookie Cards and two retired Legends in every 14-pack MASTER box.

Each MASTER box of 2013 Select Football will include two seven-pack mini boxes (six cards per pack) and the product will introduce new inserts such as Select Signatures, Select In Motion, Hot and White Hot Veterans and Select Stripes.

From early images I like I what I see from the product. And despite a new twist to it adding the Prizm technology, the design still feels 90's. Which it's good to stick to something that works.

The product is set to arrive in Mid December.

Topps Baseball Qubi 2013 2 Pack Break

 

Topps Qubi is a collectible stamp that comes in many forms. We have seen the stamp be both of a players autograph or of a players face. There are Signature, Portrait And Club Logo Stamps to collect and 75 Collectible stamps overall ranging from many players.

The stamp itself is a cube hence its name. It has a different picture depending on where you are holding the stamp. These stamps range around $2-$3 and can be found at most retail outlets and some online stores.

 
Here is one that we pulled in the first pack. A signature one of Cliff Lee. 

The second one we pulled we broke it down to 3 different views (yes we know there are 4 but these were a favorite) so you can see what we are talking about.

 

 

 

This one of Ryu, is also a signature one which you have to assume is the main one you would pull. 

These are something personally I wouldn't collect, but would be fun maybe for kids to start into since it's both a stamp they can use on paper (or your walls and your house so keep an eye out) and a collectible that they can display.The stamps are also made of very thick durable plastic, so as long as your kid isn't throwing it around the house like Chapman from the Reds, it would be hard to break.

For those that are not baseball fans, Topps also produced Soccer versions as well.

Let us know your thoughts on this unique product and if you have given it a try or not. Also let us know if it's something that you would be into collecting.
