Onyx Authenticated‘s first baseball card product, 2012 Onyx Authenticated Platinum Prospects, is set to ship beginning on Friday and that’s not the only news as the newcomer will have a presence at this year’s National Sports Collectors Convention as well.
The company announced its plans for the show set for Aug. 1-5 in Baltimore on Thursday, and it will have a wrapper redemption program for those who open a six-box case of the product at the event.
Collectors who rip a case of Platinum Prospects at the Onyx booth will receive the following pair of cards (while supplies last):
— On Aug. 2, a Rymer Liriano autograph and Jameson Taillon game-used jersey card.
— On Aug. 3, a Jameson Taillon autograph and Gary Sanchez game-used card.
— On Aug. 4, a Gary Sanchez autograph and Gerrit Cole game-used jersey card.
The company also will be giving away a Babe Ruth signed baseball from those who found Ruth Lottery redemptions in recent memorabilia products.
