Press Pass has released information and the first images of their super high-end offering, entitled 2012 Showcase Football. The appeal of this set, which will drop a solid two months after the NFL Draft and is closer to when Topps and Panini starts offering their first sets with these same players in their pro uniforms, is that it will feature only the top skill players with premium designs and inserts.
The hits in Showcase Football include six autographs and one game-used jersey card per box on what they are calling “Upscale Plastic Base Autograph Cards,” which is probably their way of using the same technology that Upper Deck uses for their PETG autographs. The main attraction seems to be the booklet autographs featuring autographs of Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III and show off their whole nameplate on the booklet.
No price has been set for 2012 Press Pass Showcase Football as of right now, but stay tuned here for more updates.

As part of my continued service to the community, each day we will feature a different image gallery that highlights some of the finest cards that the industry has to offer. It might be from sports or even comic books or possibly movies or it might be something out of the ordinary and maybe even borderline absurd. But what matters is that people get to know about these cards and get interested in the hobby like I am. We’ll be back soon for another gallery, but check out our other Card of the Day features with Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, and Blake Griffin. We also have a Youtube channel for some box breaking goodness.
