First Look: 2012 Press Pass Hall of Fame Legends Edition



By Susan Lulgjuraj | Beckett Sports Card Monthly Editor

The Hall of Fame title creates a certain feeling. Athletes voted in are usually the best of the best, the greatest of a generation.

Press Pass is bringing a product that is full of autographs from only these athletes. Every autograph in its Hall of Fame Legends Edition will be of a Hall of Famer member such as baseball’s Nolan Ryan and Rickey Henderson, football’s Joe Greene, golf’s Jack Nicklaus and basketball’s Larry Bird.

Hall of Fame Legends Edition will feature four autographs in every tin. The cards will come in various levels such as base autos, Fan Favorites and Champions.

All cards are numbered to 99 or less and four parallels that are numbered to 10 or less. In addition, collectors can find short-printed red ink autographs and inscriptions.

Hall of Famers are usually favorite players of collectors, evoking personal memories for fans. Press Pass seems to use athletes from many sports with a focus on the most popular. Other players in the product include Chuck Noll, Nick Buoniconti, Randy Couture, Ozzie Smith, Stan Musial, Ronnie Lott, Art Shell and James Worthy.

There are also cut autographs of players such as Babe Ruth, Jackie Robinson and Ty Cobb.

There are two exceptions to the Hall of Fame rule.

Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III will also have autographs in Hall of Fame Legend Edition as Rookie Fame autographs.
