On the heels of our run-away hit - Historic Autographs New York Champions series - HA is proud to announce the release of the Historic Autographs East Coast/Midwest Champions edition.
With the 2012 baseball season in full swing, Historic Autographs will release our follow-up Championship Series. This Championship Series will contains (18) different heralded teams that won either the World Series or their league championship. Each team will include the top (13) top position players (using At Bats), the top (6) pitchers (using Innings Pitched) and the manager at the end of the season. The exception will be the 1918 Boston Red Sox which will include the top (10) hitters by At Bats, the top (4) pitchers by Innings Pitched and manager Ed Barrow. The reason for this is the rarity of some of the 1918 players made it impossible to put out an affordable product and although limiting the hitters and pitchers, Historic Autographs was still able to include Babe Ruth twice (as both a pitcher and hitter).
Included will be:
Midwest Region champions
All of the teams will include twenty different players (except the 1918 Boston team that has 14) and will have its own individual PSA Set Registry. All cards with be encapsulated and authenticated by PSA/DNA and will be numerically graded. The PSA/DNA Set Registry will light up with this unique offering (and it is free to register your sets). There are already several sets being built for our NY Champions edition and it has only been out a month.
This fantastic release incorporates both Championship teams and tons of Hall of Fame signatures. Essentially, there are 18 subsets in this edition, each having its own PSA/DNA Set Registry for those who are fans of only one of these great teams, which should help both in-store sales and aftermarket resale (just reference internet markets like eBay to witness how HA products add value to ordinary autographed index cards).
Historic Autographs has chosen different images for each city (with Boston & Philadelphia having several different images) as the holders for these cards with each team displaying the same city view for uniformity. There are two separate box designs - one for the East Coast and one for the Midwest edition. Historic Autographs has tried to find the highest grade example for all players with most cards grading in the 8-10 range. Our goal at Historic Autographs is to produce an affordable cut signature product that is enjoyable to the consumer as much as it is profitable to the distributors. HA will stay dedicated to making our cut signature/index card products loaded with Hall of Famers but also affordable at every level from the distributor to the customer.
Historic Autographs strides to make the best product possible with every release and to solidify The Champions as a top rated product, Historic Autographs will institute a buyback program for some players. The players included in this program will be those rarities that may not be known to most novice autograph collectors. Players like Jack Quinn, Everett Scott, Sam Agnew, Pete Fox, Waler Judnich, Dave Shean, Sam Zoldak, Eddie Waitkus, Stuffy McInnis, Sam Jones, and Bill Salkeld are some of the rare signatures that will have buyback cards from Historic Autographs issued in the pack with instructions on how to use the buyback program. HA's intention is to help set a baseline "value" from their fantastic pull. There will also be buyback cards issued for the top Hall of Famers and stars such as Babe Ruth, Jimmie Foxx, Mickey Cochrane, Roger Maris, Nellie Fox, Joe Gordon, Billy Southworth, Kiki Cuyler and Connie Mack among others. Cards purchased by Historic Autographs, as part of this new buyback program, will be listed on HA's website (with the original owner's name and where the card was purchased) to be sold to collectors who are building one of the Historic Autograph sets.
