From the Tongue-Firmly-in-Cheek File …

Just in case you’ve ever wanted to get your hands on Panini America‘s Tracy Hackler, you now have your chance at the National Sports Collectors Convention.

No, he’s not auditioning opponents for inside the Octagon. No, he’s not holding arm-wrestling contests at the company booth (that we know of) — but watch out, he’ll test positive for Monster and Jack Links beef jerky so if you want to take your chances on a reversed decision …

Instead? Well …

No, the company’s hobby marketing manager will be found inside packs of the show’s wrapper redemption cards at the show Aug. 1-5 in Baltimore — a bonus card that is limited to just 20 copies per person.

Joining Hackler will be fellow marketing maven Scott Prusha and Hobby Sales Manager Rodney Alsup on cardboard.

What will they be worth? That will be up to you once they hit the open market.
