With Marie and I going on our adventures last week, I didn't get a chance to write up the latest hobby news, which by this point is old news to many of you.
I like putting it on the blog anyway because it's a way for me to keep record of what's happening and I could refer to it at a later date.
Item #1 (from Beckett)
Panini and the NFL and NFLPA have agreed to a multi-year trading cards deal
With the announcement (that many knew was coming), Panini released 2010 Prestige, which includes Tim Tebow's first rookie cards and autos. Love the player or hate the player, his auto from this set have sold for around $150 with the short-printed variation going in the $25-$40 range.
Items #2 (from Beckett)
Topps released preview images of 2010 Triple threads
I intend to have a whole post dedicated to Topps Triple Threads, but just wanted to show a few of the preview images released of the set. I like the first card, but the player should certainly have his name on it. I'm not sold on the second card, but it would be nice if they were on-card autos.
Collectors always love that. This product is set to be released at the end of August at around $180/box.
Item #3 (where I read at Sports Card Info first)
Finest Rookie Redemption #3 revealed
third redemption. Castro had a great debut (which we blogged about). He had a homer a six RBIs, but since then he has not had any more of either. However, he has gotten on base and is hitting .323 (10-for-31).
Item #4 (from Beckett)
Upper Deck announced it will create Major League Lacrosse cards
I got nothing.
