2015 GOODWIN CHAMPIONS MUSEUM COLLECTION TO FOCUS ON ROARING 20's - LOOK FOR AL CAPONE ORIGINAL WIRE PHOTO AND ELLIOTT NESS SIGNED CHECK


Arriving Wednesday is one of the most fun products of the year, 2015 Goodwin Champions.  As has become custom with Goodwin Champions, the “weird stuff” is what makes this release so interesting each year. 

For 2015, Goodwin Champions added a several new elements, including a collection of 1-of-1 Cut Signatures highlighted by names like Bill Gates, Stephen King and Marlon Brando plus a slate of inscribed, hard-signed autograph cards from legends such as “Mr. Clutch” Jerry West, “Bird Man” Tony Hawk and the “Finnish Flash” Teemu Selanne. 

One of the weirdest new elements is the 54-card 3-D lenticular “Game of Chance” insert set. Seeded at a rate of one in four hobby boxes on average, these cards feature stunning original art in a set that when completed is a 100% functional deck of cards. Look for rare Artist Autograph variations #’d of 25 per too!


Another new “concept card” is the Historical Rhetoric audio booklets, featuring audio clips from some of the most famous speeches from the past 150 years including John F. Kennedy’s “Inaugural Address”, Winston Churchill’s “We Will Fight on the Beaches” and Ronald Reagan’s “Remarks at the Brandenburg Gate”. These rare cards are available via planned redemption with exchange cards falling at 1 in every 660 packs on average.

Speaking of Reagan’s “Remarks at Brandenburg Gate”, keep an eye out for two very special Goudey Memorabilia redemptions for cards of Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev, each featuring material from the Berlin Wall.


We’d be remiss to discuss any edition of Goodwin Champions without devoting some time to the ever-popular Museum Collection Relics. Coming off the heels of the Civil War in 2013 and World War I in 2014,this year’s product focuses on “The Roaring 20’s” .... a decade fueled by sustained economic prosperity that laid down many of the foundations for modern pop culture heralded by the explosion of Jazz and Big Band music, modern femininity with the brash wave of young Flappers and the ominous specter of Gangsters. Look for more than 25 different historical pieces highlighted by a stunning wire photo of Al Capone and a signed check from Capone’s nemesis Elliott Ness, leader of “The Untouchables”.



The base set features an all-new 50-card Black and White painted subset, with 

premium memorabilia and hard-signed auto parallels. The final fifteen cards from the base set once again feature a selection of baseball’s top prospects on hard-signed cards (seeded at a rate of 1 in every 60 packs on average) including 5-tool infielder Dermis Garcia. In all, seven of the 15 subjects are ranked amongst Baseball America’s Top 100 prospects.

New signers for this year include 2014 Boston Marathon Winner Meb Keflezighi, MMA All-Time Great Georges St. Pierre and legendary Comic creator Stan Lee. In addition to the new signers, look for signatures from Tiger Woods, Wayne Gretzky, 
Mike Tyson, Nolan Ryan, Mark McGwire and LeBron James. 

The base set Mini parallels have been upgraded to feature a different substrate for each level including Canvas (announced at 99 copies per), Cloth Lady Luck Backs (#’d of 50 per), Leather Magician Backs (#’d of 15 per) and of course the 1-of-1 Gold Rainbow Foil presidential Backs.





Look for almost 300 different, all-new, hand-painted, 1-of-1 Art of the Ages cards. These cards are truly stunning homages to masterpieces ranging from Van Gogh to Modigliani.

The Origin of Species manufactured patch cards return for the second of three planned years of cards tracing the origins of life itself on planet Earth. The 2015 

cards feature a selection of 100 different creatures from the time of the dinosaurs. Look for these cards falling at a rate of 1 in every 64 packs (i.e. five per sealed case), with rare high series cards including Large Predators (1:1,785) and Flying Creatures (1:8,685).

2014-15 Panini Preferred Basketball ($185 per box) arrived Wednesday at Sports Cards Plus, a.k.a. The Super Hit Factory and it didn't take long to uncover some AMAZING HUGE HITS.  Leland led the way with a Jabarri Parker Autographed Silhouette Jumbo Jersey RC and an Andrew Wiggins Auto Green Emerald RC 5/5.

Florida Will came in for a couple of boxes.  His favorite hits included this Kevin Durant 2014-15 Preferred Basketball Autographed Silhouette Jumbo Jersey Patch #d/25 and Kobe Bryant Multi-Patch Booklet #d/25.





Tommy came in earlier in the week to pick his box from The BEST CASES in The Hobby at The LOWEST Price in The Galaxy (all of Texas).  First he tried a box of 2012-13 Panini Gold Standard Basketball for ONLY $116.95 at The Super Hit Factory.  Of course, our case provided Tommy one of the HUGEST HITS from 2012-13 Gold Standard, a redemption for a Damian Lillard 14KT Solid Gold RC 1/1.  But Tommy wasn't done just yet.  Tommy knows the Super Hit Factory is FULL of Super Hits.

Tommy knows well The Legend of The Super Hit Factory.  He decided to do a heat check and try a box of 2014-15 Panini Court Kings for only $64.95 and get a FREE Panini 2015 Father's Day Pack with a FREE entry to our $500.00 June 30th Drawing (You always get more at Sports Cards Plus).  Here is Tommy with his Andrew Wiggins Court Kings Auto RC #d/130.  And, The Legend of The Super Hit Factory continues...........................

Tommy was about to take his Super Hits and go home.  He took one more look around the store.  He just had to have one more Super Hit but he couldn't decide what to try.  I told Tommy, "I wouldn't give up on that case of 2012-13 Gold Standard Basketball; the Kyrie Irving Auto Jersey Patch RC is still in there."  Tommy is a regular customer and knows, The BEST CASES in The Hobby are at Sports Cards Plus, so he gave that case another try.  As predicted, here is Tommy with his Kyrie Irving Autographed Jersey Patch RC #d/99.  Be like Tommy.  Go to Sports Cards Plus TODAY and get your fair share of Super Hits.

Houston Tommy has been our customer for about 15 years.  Tommy makes the drive from Houston to Sports Cards Plus to pick his boxes from The BEST CASES in The Hobby.  Here is Tommy with his 2014 Topps Supreme Teddy Bridgewater Auto RC #d/99 and a 2014 Crown Royale Peyton Manning Autographed Gold Silhouette Jersey Patch card 1/5.  That's right.......  Only 5 made and Tommy got number 1 !!!

Florida Will is taking more than his share of Super Hits.  This Tiger Woods 2001 SP Authentic Golf ($109.95 per box) Autographed Rookie Year Auto is just the tip of the ice berg.  These could have been your pictures but you didn't make it in to Sports Cards Plus this week.  Don't worry.  The Super Hit Factory has plenty more, but don't delay.  You may see Will's picture with the Super Hit meant for you.  Here are more Super Hits courtesy of Will and The Super Hit Factory:
