Football's First Cards of 2005 Unveiled
SA•GE Collectibles, Inc. is honored to announce the FIRST CARDS of the top 2005 football rookies are
available now. SA•GE unveiled today the very first 2005 First Cards, featuring each player's very first
officially licensed trading cards, of nine different players. Included in this group are quarterback
sensations Jason White (Oklahoma), Kyle Orton (Purdue), Dan Orlovsky (UConn), Derek Anderson (Oregon St.),
Chris Rix (Florida St.) and dynamic running backs Ronnie Brown (Auburn), Anthony Davis (Wisconsin), Vernand
Morency (Oklahoma St.), and Frank Gore (Miami).
"As soon as each top player becomes available," said Tom Geideman, president of SA•GE Collectibles.
"SA•GE will be issuing his first card. Plus, to ensure its scarcity, each card is sequentially hand-numbered."
SA•GE also announced similar installments of 2005's top rookies that included Aaron Rodgers (Cal), J.J. Arrington
(Cal), Alex Smith (Utah), Cadillac Williams (Auburn), Jason Campbell (Auburn), Troy Williamson (So. Carolina),
Derrick Johnson (Texas), David Greene (Georgia), Fred Gibson (Georgia), Ciatrick Fason (Florida), Andrew Walter
(Arizona State), Charlie Frye (Akron) and Mark Clayton (Oklahoma).
The high-quality, limited-edition First Cards were available for direct purchase on the internet at www.beckett.com,
as well as from assorted dealers at www.ebay.com (search for SAGE First Card). All of the trading cards feature the player in his
college uniform, and are licensed by the player and the Collegiate Licensing Company. Like the previous two years,
SAGE First Cards are only available for sale as described. They will not be inserted into the very popular HIT
and SAGE Autographed brands which ship in early April and early May respectively, and will contain the first
authentic autographs and jersey cards of the top 2005 draftees.
