Press Pass’ FanFare Racing arrives next month
By Susan Lulgjuraj | Beckett Sports Card Montly Editor
Press Pass FanFare Racing is back for a second year. The autograph and memorabilia-heavy product comes out next month with an extensive autograph and memorabilia checklist.
Some of the names in the product include Carl Edwards, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Travis Pastrana, Tony Stewart and Jeff Gordon.
FanFare was pushed back a week from its original release date to Sept. 13. The product features eight packs per box with five cards in each pack. This product essentially gives a hit in each pack with four autographs and four memorabilia cards in every box.
FanFare will have the first certified autographs of Darrell Wallace Jr., Ryan Blaney, Gray Gaulding and Paulie Harraka. There are also dual autographs of racing relatives with Austin and Ty Dillon, Ward and Jeb Burton, Martin and Ryan Truex, and Terry and Bobby Labonte on the checklist.
The 100-card base set – with drivers from the Sprint Cup, Nationwide and Truck Series – will have die cuts and parallels. Parallels include Silver Foil (numbered to 25), Holo Foil Die Cut and Blue Foil Die Cut (retail only).
There are two more parallels, but these cards can only be found in Power Packs. The Sapphire Foil (numbered to 20) and Diamond Die Cut (numbered to 5) will be placed in these packs that are given away as part of a promotion through select hobby stores and sellers.
Most of the cards in the Power Packs will be parallels, however, a few autograph and memorabilia cards will be inserted.
