SAGE Collectibles announces a hobby first: The very first authentic Draft Football issue to be released in March - one whole month before the actual draft! That's right, now collectors can obtain their favorite collegiate player in the 2008 professional draft, a month earlier than they ever could before.
Here are some of the HIT 2008 Football details:
HIT BASE CARDS: The first 50 cards of a 100-card set are featured in the low series. The high series, which will feature many of the top players not included in the low series (including such names as Sedrick Ellis & Malcolm Kelly) will appear in late April, prior to the April 26-27 draft.
Additionally, there will be gold autographed cards of each player, numbered to 250 plus un-numbered silver & base versions.
SATURDAY COLORS INSERT: Each Saturday Colors insert will have an autographed card version numbered to 100.
WRITE STUFF INSERT: Each Write Stuff insert will have an autographed card version numbered to 25.
To top that, the all new SAGE HIT 2008 Football High Series will follow one month later, in April of 2008. Those players who aren't featured in SAGE HIT 2008 Low Series Football, are slated to appear in the SAGE HIT 2008 High Series Football release.
SAGE anticipates that the combined number of player cards in the two issues will total 100. SAGE HIT 2008 Football low series will feature 50 players (numbered 1-50)
