A good friend of mine (who is a full-time dealer in the area) sent over the selling brochure of a new card release.
It is the most polarizing card issue ever because dealers either refuse to carry them, or buy as much as they can. The manufacturer is now completely sold out! It has an *AMAZING* checklist, too.
I’m not supposed to show the sell sheet as it is supposed to be dealer only, but since they are already sold out, I figured it wouldn’t be a big deal.
I was told that the autograph mention below is a jab at 2015 Tribute.
Very slick looking patch cards. I like how they do not hide behind any legaleze and make it hard to determine if the jerseys are game worn or not.
I have no problems with this – this is cool!
As a fan, I love this. I do find it a bit tasteless though. How would you like your face on a card when you just broke your ankle?
This is cool, but the back disclaimer makes me feel dirty.
How do they get these “relics”?!?!
Odd, but at least Canseco is in it! You know I’m sold already.
How is this even legal?
Regardless of how “out there” this is, I’m totally buying.
If you already haven’t guessed it, Four One is only available at Mouschi’s 😉
Here is a little larger view of all the cards used, just for grins.
The following players were not harmed in the making of this sell sheet article: Jose Canseco, Mark McGwire, Barry Bonds, Brian Wilson, Derek Jeter, Jose Fernandez, Mike Trout, Yasiel Puig, Nolan Ryan, Alex Rodriguez, Kris Bryant.
BRILLIANT! I never caught on to the Four One, but I caught on quickly on the joke. A lot better than what I did. As this is my first year doing a blog on April Fools Day, I didn't know if it was a big deal in card collecting. This made me laugh more than I have in a long time.
Thanks 🙂 I'm very glad to hear it – it took a long time to get this all together.
Laugh now, but you know Topps is looking at this and thinking, "Hey, what a great idea!"
Beautifully designed and I love the "Tooth & Nail". Just brilliant!
Thanks Stubby 🙂
I thought this was real until I got to the tooth and nail… What an awesome post!!!
Awesome job! What is the best way to get started on you creating me a custom booklet?
booklets are a specialty of mine – you can email me at email@example.com – thanks for the kudos!
