FREE CARDS

I am currently running 5 different promtions
for free sports cards.

BASEBALL

First is the "BASEBALL CARD HISTORY" Promotion.
Beginning February 2008 with the release of Topps Baseball Series 1,
Baseball History Cards #1-#25 will be randomly inserted exclusivly
into Topps Baseball card packs. Starting the weekend of February 8th
collectors can purchase a Baseball History card pack for just 5 cents.
Each pack will contain 5 cards #26-#30, these packs are found only
at participating Home Team Advantage Stores.
Then, every week for the next 20 weeks, HTA stores will offer
a new card to complete the 50 card set with the
purchase of at least one pack of TOPPS Baseball Cards.
This promotion ends with the All-Star Break in July.

BASKETBALL

Topps is celebrating its 50th Anniversary of Topps Basketball.
In celebration of this event Topps and HTA stores are having a
"TOPPS 50" Promotion. This is a 30 week program beginning
January 14th 2008 offering a limited edition Topps card
every week.
During this time you will be able to receive one of the 50
limited edition cards with a purchase of a pack of

The NBA is running the
NBA STARTING 5 trading Card Promotion.
From March 17th to April 13th, collectors who purchase
and open "IN STORE" NBA 07-08 packs from Topps or Upper Deck.
If that person has all five of the desinated players
in their packs, they can receive a Limited Edition
Trading Card mini pack.

That person will then qualify to enter
the NBA Starting 5 contest.
At the end of the promotion,
a winner will be chosen at random,
with a chance to Win
a Trip for two to the 2008 NBA
Rookie Photo Shoot in New York and/or
a $20.00 gift certificate to be
used here in my store.

The 5 designated players are;
LeBRON JAMES, CARMELO ANTHONY, DWIGHT HOWARD,
STEVE NASH AND DWAYNE WADE.

Each minipack will contain either a Dwayne Wade
or LeBRON JAMES Card.
There are LeBRON JAMES and DWAYNE WADE
autographs randomly inserted in the mini-packs.

We also do the "TOPPS OF THE CLASS PROGRAM".
We have been doing this program for a number of
years now. When ever an elementary school student
brings in their report card, they will receive
a pack of "Topps of the Class" card packs for
each A or S. Limited 5 per student.
I have Football and Baseball packs to give away.
So do well in school and you will be rewarded.


And of course I also do the;
"MLB BASEBALL CARD CLUBHOUSE"

This program was set up by Major League Baseball and sport card hobby stores
to assist Boy Scouts to earn their merit badge for collecting.
Click on the above link to find out more information about this program.
If this is something your troop is interested in doing,
just contact me by e-mail or phone to set up a time that is
convenient for you and me. Upon arriving at my store scouts will receive
"free" a MLB baseball tin with packs of baseball cards and information
on collecting baseball cards. Along with a personal perspective, by me,
on the fun, care and potential profits on collecting sports cards.
So, mention this idea on your next troop meeting
and I will be looking forward to seeing you here at my store. Have Fun.
Charlie Ramsdell.
