First look: 2011 Main Event NASCAR cards
By Chris Olds | Beckett Sports Card Monthly Editor
If you thought the fireworks during Daytona weekend were all that there was for NASCAR news in July, you’re wrong.
Press Pass has released the basic set information and preview images for its 2011 Main Event set, a product with some new features that will arrive on Sept. 28.
Each 20-pack hobby box will include one autograph and two memorabilia cards along with new box-topper packs that include either parallel card, one of two Miss Sprint Cup autographs or other autograph and memorabilia cards from the Press Pass archives.
Among the autograph cards are Main Event Marks and Main Event Matchups duals, which feature drivers who finished first and second in races this year.
Among the memorabilia offerings are Gloves Off (glove cards), Lead Foot (shoes), Headliners (hats) and Main Event Materials, which include a jumbo swatch of other memorabilia including pit signs, window nets and more, according to Press Pass.
The box-topper parallels include Reds (limited to 25) and Greens, which are 1/1s. Finally, the product will include an insert set highlighting the 20th anniversary of Joe Gibbs Racing in NASCAR.
