Series B of the popular new retro set will be out this summer.
The revival of the Sport Kings brand continues with the release of Series B. The second series in the 75th anniversary set produced by Dr. Brian Price will be unveiled July 24.
A line-up more of the world’s greatest athletes will be featured including: Joe Montana, Pele, Roy Jones Jr., Arnold Palmer and Hakeem Olajuwon. The Sport Kings brand crosses a variety of sports from different eras, much like the originals did in the 1930s.
The company promises that Series B will feature more hard-signed autograph cards and more limited game-used memorabilia. Game-used memorabilia cards will be more limited than Series A.
The number of cut-signature inserts sets will be increased in Series B, insert sets include; 1933-The Year, Sportkings at the Movies and Presidents/Players along with the return of Vintage PaperCuts and PaperCuts.
The Made To Order program will return, giving collectors a chance to select the player or players of their choice and have a special one of one card made exclusively for them. As in Series A, there will be single, double and triple player Made To Order cards.
Sport Kings will return to the National Sports Collectors Convention in Chicago this summer. "It’s hard to believe that it will be a year since Sportkings Series A was announced at last year’s National in Cleveland," Price stated. "I remember giving out Preview cards not that long ago. We look forward to meeting our collectors, dealers and distributors in Chicago at this great event."
Sport Kings LP plans a Box Redemption Program for both Series A and Series B product featuring unique and limited memorabilia cards for those who open product at the Sport Kings Booth.
Complete information on the Box Redemption Program will be announced in the coming months.
