Press Pass 2005 Racing Cards

Press Pass 2005 provides collectors and fans an in-depth look into the fastest growing sport in America, NASCAR NEXTEL Cup. As the most comprehensive set of the year, Press Pass 2005 offers all the elements that collectors have come to enjoy with cards featuring NASCAR NEXTEL Cup, Busch Series, Craftsman Truck Drivers, and NASCAR Touring Series Champions.

"Without a doubt, this year, collectors will find more to like about Press Pass 2005 than ever before. The newly extended 120-card base set covers the largest range of racing of any Press Pass set. You will find top drivers from a variety of NASCAR series, a look back on the greatest moments from 2004, and an innovative look at this year's most sensational wins. Additionally, Press Pass 2005 not only kicks off our year-long memorabilia program, Double Burner/Triple Burner, but it also contains a new promotional element," explains Mandy Kirkland, product manager for Press Pass, a division of RC2 Brands (NASDAQ: RCRC). "We have joined efforts with NASCAR Scene to give collectors, for the first time, an opportunity to be an 'Insider for the Day'. Collectors not only receive four free issues of NASCAR Scene, but can enter for a chance to win two free NASCAR Scene Suite passes along with two garage passes to the 2005 NASCAR NEXTEL All-Star Race at Lowe's Motor Speedway in Charlotte, NC, and other prizes."

Total Memorabilia Power Pick contest returns in all 2005 Press Pass products. Additionally, the highly anticipated Signature Series autographed memorabilia cards launch in Press Pass 2005, and will continue in all 2005 Press Pass NASCAR releases. Found exclusively in Press Pass 2005, Burning Rubber Signature Series cards are autographed and numbered to the driver's door number, and found in hobby packs only.

Found only in Press Pass 2005 and Press Pass Eclipse, the newly designed Certified Autographs kick off 2005 and are inserted 1:84 hobby packs, 1:144 retail packs. Additionally, collectors can look for the final Dale Earnhardt Gallery insert series that culminates with touching quotes and unique artist-touched photography on how Earnhardt became a legend in the sport of racing. An additional limited edition hobby-only version is stamped in gold foil and sequentially numbered to 200.

Press Pass 2005 features inserts such as the annual collector-favorite Cup Chase where collectors can win a complete 18-card Cup Chase prize set, and possibly a memorabilia card, if their pictured driver wins a designated race (hobby 1:28, retail 1:36); Showman/Showcar, a die-cut holofoil insert of 12 drivers and their 12 cars (1:18 Showman, 1:12 Showcar); Game Face, a 9-card foil insert (1:8); Velocity, an etched holofoil 9-card insert (1:14); and Snapshots set-within-a-set that captures all of 2004's most memorabilia moments on 36 mini die-cut cards (1:2).
