It’s the rarest, highest graded, and most valuable football card collection in the world and this weekend fans will be able to see it on display at the Football Hall of Fame.  The Hunt/Casterline football collection is a one of a kind collection

Football Hall of Fame

Football Hall of Fame

put together by Robert Casterline and business partner Dan Hunt, it includes a Rookie card of every member in the football Hall of Fame and shows no sign of completion.

“This collection is going to grow,” explained Casterline. “Every year there is going to be new Hall of Fame players. The thing that is organic about this collection, it can grow for the next 500, 5000 years. Hopefully my children will take up the cause.”

The card exhibition is the first thing you see as you walk in the doors, as its set up in the hall’s exhibit gallery located adjacent to the museum’s grand entrance. The exhibit is free with paid admission to the Hall of Fame. For a complete schedule of Hall of Fame events click here.

What is Operations Open-A-Pack? Well it goes back to a few years ago, a fellow collector would not open any thing he bought from November till Christmas, and then he would open it all on Christmas Day. This would include Ebay buys, Blasters, and Hobby boxes, including a annual trip to the November Sun-Time Show. In one way a great idea tons of pack to rip open, right? But I could never walk out of that Sun-Time Show boxes, yes boxes in hand not to open anything for a month, no way no how. So I’m taking his idea and putting a spin on it. Starting back on January 1st, almost every box – blaster and hobby box that I open, I’m putting 1 pack aside and will open all the packs on Christmas. Below is the list of what the box holds.

Michael Sam 2While Michael Sam is in Indianapolis this week for the NFL Combine, Press Pass Inc. is hard at work putting together the incoming 2014 Draft Class set and that will include autograph cards of Michael Sam.

Earlier this week Press Pass Inc. announced “in conjunction with the return of its Press Pass Football product line, the first on-cards autographs of the incoming 2014 draft class. Collectors will have the opportunity to receive a free autograph card of ground-breaking rookie, Michael Sam.”  The release goes on to say that each hobby box will contain 6 autos from players like Johnny Manziel, Jadeveon Clowney, Teddy Bridgewater, Blake Bortles along with many others.

That’s great you say but how do you grab that Sam auto? According to Press Pass Inc. collectors can claim their free auto, by sending the Hobby Box UPC Code, along with a 3″ x 5″ card with their name and complete address along with email address to:

 Press Pass Rookie Football 2014 – Michael Sam

9805 NorthCross Center Ct, Suite H

Huntersville, NC 28078

Also found this little item for dealers to spend alittle more on this product.

If you get a chance check out http://www.voiceofthecollector.com/ and his $500 Philadelphia Football Card Experiment. Here’s his post from earlier this week. Let’s help him get to his goal…

FROM – Voice of the collector

Last weekend we had a huge garage sale. My mother-in-law has been diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease and we moved her into our attached rental unit. This is her second downsizing in 2 years. She had an auction and a previous huge tag sale at the time of the original downsize.

The lady that ran her tag sale, also does estate sales. She stopped by our garage sale with a box of older musty cards, most from the 1970’s. I gave her $20 for the box and upon closer inspection, I found these buried inside.

 

Yes, that’s right. 1967 Philadelphia Football 2nd year cards of legendary Bears greats, Gale Sayers and Dick Butkus. I already have a Sayers and there were actual two of the Butkus. 

Some of you may remember a recurring blog post by a shop owner by the name of Bob Brill and his Brill Report. He conducted what he called “The $10,000 Experiment” in which he started with a single purchased item for $10 and sold it at a profit, reinvested and repeated until he hit his monetary goal. I found it fascinating and miss it. 

So I figured despite not having a shop with people walking in to willing to sell me various items, that I’d give the experiment a try of my own, albeit on a smaller scale. Taking just these two cards, I’m going to sell them on eBay and use the money to reinvest in other things I think I can flip and repeat until I reach $500.

With everything I have going on, I hope I can commit to this, so wish me luck and let the games begin!
