Press Pass® Eclipse 2004 to Feature Several Rare Autographs
Releasing on March 10, 2004, collectors will be pleasantly surprised to find one
autograph in every hobby box of Press Pass Eclipse 2004. This marks the
first time that a Press Pass NASCAR product has included an autograph per box.
In addition to one autograph per hobby box, Press Pass Eclipse 2004 is
the only Press Pass product where you will find the rare Teammate Autographs and
first ever Dale Earnhardt Jr. Signature Series autograph cards.
The popular Teammate Autograph program returns to Press Pass Eclipse
in 2004 for the second year in a row. This year's program includes
autographs from seven pairs of NASCAR Nextel Cup teammates. For the first time
ever, Press Pass has paired signatures of championship winning teammates, Bobby
Labonte and Tony Stewart on the same card. Other teammate pairs include: Jeff
Gordon and Jimmie Johnson, Mark Martin and Greg Biffle, Elliott Sadler and Dale
Jarrett, Kevin Harvick and Robby Gordon, Casey Mears and Jamie McMurray, and
Rusty Wallace and Ryan Newman. Teammate Autographs are sequentially
numbered to 25.
The Signature Series program for Press Pass Eclipse 2004 is
highlighted by the addition of Dale Earnhardt Jr. to the line-up. There are
eight drivers included in Signature Series Under Cover. These hobby-only
memorabilia autograph cards feature drivers' signatures paired with swatches of
their event-used car cover, and are sequentially numbered to their car door
number. There are only eight Dale Earnhardt Jr. Signature Series Under
Cover cards produced, making this one of his rarest cards and only
autographed memorabilia card to date!
"We are excited to put together such a strong autograph roster for Press Pass
Eclipse 2004," explained Heather Maillard, associate product manager for
Press Pass, a division of RC2 (NASDAQ: RCRC). "With the first ever Signature
