Pacific at two CFL fanfests this weekend
Pacific Trading Cards will be present at two fanfest events in Canada this weekend
to promote trading cards and collectibles.
Saturday, Pacific will be present in conjunction with the CFLPA at the Calgary
Stampeders Fanfest at McMahon Stadium. The CFLPA will be unveiling Pacific's
new 2004 CFL trading card designs to fans in Calgary, and Todd McFarlane will
be the Stampeders special guest. McFarlane designed the new CFLPA logo, which
will also be unveiled at the event.
Sunday, Pacific will be at the B.C. Lions fanfest at B.C. Place Stadium in
Both events will feature interactive activities for fans, as well as several
players from both teams being available for autographs. Pacific CFL and Atomic
products from last season will also be available.
"These events are a great way to introduce CFL football card collecting
to the fans throughout Canada," said Jeffrey Morris, Pacific's VP of
Marketing. "The teams, the league and the players association have been great
to work with as we try to build this market and hobby up from grass roots
levels. In Calgary, the excitement of the Flames' playoff success will have a
positive impact on the Stampeders' event, plus having Todd McFarlane there
will make it a great opportunity for all sports fans."
Pacific's 2004 CFL Football product will go on sale in mid-June, during opening
week of the CFL season. There will be two authentic game-used jersey cards per
box, as well as randomly inserted autographed cards. Packs will have a suggested
retail price of $3.99 Canadian ($2.99 USD).
