First look: 2013 Press Pass Ignite Racing

By Susan Lulgjuraj | Beckett Sports Card Monthly Editor

In just a few weeks 2013 Press Pass Ignite Racing will hit the shelves featuring the first set with NASCAR drivers in their uniforms this season.

Each box will feature 20 packs with five cards in each pack. A box will yield one autograph, one memorabilia card, one parallel, five inserts and a 2013 Hall of Fame insert

Press Pass Ignite is scheduled for a May 1 release and will have a 70-card base set.

The autographs will feature all the usual racing suspects such as Danica Patrick, Dale Earnhardt Jr., and Jimmie Johnson with three levels of parallels. Each half case will include a bonus autographed memorabilia card including Great American Treads (Daytona 500 tire) and Supercharged Signatures (autograph quad memorabilia cards).

Press Pass will include a rare Patrick card in each half case, highlighting her historic pole position at the Dayton 500.

Some of the different types of memorabilia cards include Hot Threads (race-used fire suits) and Double Burner (dual race-used fire suit)

Starting with Ignite, the Power Pack promo will have a Power Pick base card and a Power Pack-exclusive Hot Threads Firesuit card.

A hobby box will run about $85 presale.

I am just curious about 1 thing but before that I would like to say I am a long time Nascar fan.
For some reason this line
*The autographs will feature all the usual racing suspects such as Danica Patrick, Dale Earnhardt Jr., and Jimmie Johnson with three levels of parallels * For some reason it just doesn’t sound right putting a Rookie before the name of a 5 time champion and the favorite driver for to many years to count {10 in a row }.
This is nothing against Danca because I love seeing her do well in Nascar. It just seems like she is getting to much attention for just being a rookie. Give her a chance to showcase her talent and show she can be at the same level of performance as Jr. & Jimmy then put her name as the Showcase name for the product.

Larry,

Her cards sell product. Press Pass used three of its preview images on Patrick, not the other drivers.

Also, I just picked the names out of the athletes in the images that have autograph cards. There wasn’t a reason other than whose cards I saw first when going through my notes. There was no slight toward anyone when writing the post.

Hi again Susan,
I hope you didn’t take my comment’s the wrong way. {My GF said I worded it wrong} I guess I was just
a little outspoken and I didn’t realize it. I am glad she is bringing Fans into Nascar that wouldn’t normally watch/attend events. I was really happy to see her get the pole in Daytona and also to be up front
for a good part of the race. All that being said I hope you don’t hold it against me if I chime in every once in awhile..lol.. It’s nice to see good stories about Nascar and the other sports on Becket Media.
Keep up the good work.

ps. If you can put in a good word for me for the drawing of The Beckett Cover Cards from the Industry summit.. jk but they are awesome cards
