2007 National Treasures Cut Autos

Saturday, February 2nd, 2008

I found this video by Donruss TV showing some of the Cut Autos from 2007 National Treasures Football. These are the big money cards from a super high-end product. Some of the subjects include Football Hall of Famers, Boxing Legends, former Presidents, and entertainers. Most of the lower numbered cards should sell for over $1,000 a pop.

Birth of a Premier Stitchings Patch

In 2007, Upper Deck introduced a set of manufactured patch cards in UD Premier Baseball. The Premier Stitchings set was also included in UD Premier Football and will return in 2008 UD Premier Baseball and 07-08 Premier Basketball.

Von Glitschka, a graphic designer and illustrator, designed the Premier Stitchings patches for Upper Deck. Check out his homepage and his art blog. He does some really neat stuff, including the logos for Orbit Gum (which I chew constantly).

Here’s how Von went about designing a Kevin Durant patch for 07-08 Premier Basketball.

Tristar Signa Cuts Football

Thursday, January 10th, 2008

Typically, I try to stay away from some of the smaller card companies, but Tristar Signa Cuts caught my attention because supposedly you get a cut auto in each pack, of a Hall of Famer, Award Winner or Fan Favorite. The checklist actually looks pretty decent, with the big hit being a Jim Thorpe cut auto along with Vince Lombardi, Tom Brady, Adrian Peterson and more.

After doing a little research however, I have to say STAY AWAY from this product.
