Southbay Cards is back with one of its special promotions. The brick-and-mortar shop in Lomita, Calif., has looked for new ways to keep sports fans and collectors coming through their door.

Their Super Boxes have been a success for baseball. Now, Southbay Cards is trying it out with baseball and football boxes.

In each 2011 Playoff Super Box, there will be 10-11 autograph and memorabilia cards per box with players such Kobe Bryant, Blake Griffin, Sam Bradford, Tim Tebow and other NBA and NFL stars.

Also inside each box is a raffle ticket. Each box cost $99.95, and when they sell out, the raffle tickets will be pulled to award 20 extra prizes.

Some of the extra prizes include a Michael Jordan Upper Deck Authenticated Mr. June limited autographed framed jersey or an autographed Blake Griffin Los Angeles Clippers jersey. Football fans can hope to grab a Dan Marino signed football or signed items from Matt Ryan, Rey Maualuga or Joe Montana.

Southbay has done this promotion with baseball. In its last giveaway, Southbay handed a signed Babe Ruth ball to one lucky collector.

    We try to build the best boxes of cards we can with high dollar card content, as well as give away super prizes that people want to win!

    Its all about giving the collector what they want- great product- great prizes! What could be better.

    Thank you all for your support!
