The Pro Football Hall of Fame has announced the creation of a new collector card series – the Bronze Bust Collector Card set. Each of the 150 limited-edition Bronze Bust Collector Card sets includes 253 hand-numbered cards depicting, in stunning high-resolution photography, the sculpted bronze portrait bust of each Hall of Fame member. Additionally, more than 130 collector cards in each set are autographed by Hall of Famers, including Joe Montana, John Elway, Barry Sanders, John Madden, Steve Young, Terry Bradshaw, Franco Harris, Jack Lambert and Dan Marino. The Bronze Bust Collector Card series represents the most exclusive card collection ever offered by the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
“The bronze bust set is something really unique,” said Hall of Fame Class of 2008 enshrinee Andre Tippett. “It’s one of a kind just like the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The card program is that same caliber, one of a kind.”
Each card set comes with a Letter of Authenticity and is protected and displayed in a specially created collector’s edition Bronze Bust Collector Card binder featuring the Hall of Fame logo.
“The bronze portrait busts, which we use to honor our Hall of Fame members, are often cited as something that separates the Pro Football Hall of Fame from other sports museums,” stated Steve Strawbridge, the Hall of Fame’s vice president merchandising/licensing. “With the Bronze Bust Collector Cards, we feel that we have again created something that separates us from the norm.”
The limited-edition Bronze Bust Collector Card set is offered at $5,000. Orders can be placed by calling the Hall of Fame at (800) 869-8207 or order online at Profootballhof.com.
