Important Show Announcements
Collectors Club Promotion
In continuation of last year’s popular Babe Ruth fantasy card promotion, PSA is proud to announce a new five-card fantasy set, The Cards that Never Were, depicting artwork by renowned artist Arthur K. Miller (www.artofthegame.com). Sponsored by Historic Autograph Company, these specially-printed cards, which have been encapsulated by PSA and numbered 1 to 500 each, will feature portraits of Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Bob Feller and two of Babe Ruth as they are imagined within the 1934-36 Diamond Stars set. Like last year, these one-of-a-kind promo cards will be offered as part of an on-site PSA Collectors Club promotion: attendees signing up (or renewing) for the Gold membership will receive one randomly selected card and those purchasing (or renewing) a Platinum membership will receive the entire five-card set. The card(s) will be added, for free, to all existing benefits already included in the club. For more information on this fantasy card series, visit www.psacard.com/cardsthatneverwere.

This summer, the original five paintings that were produced by artist Arthur K. Miller especially for PSA’s The Cards that Never Were fantasy card series will be on display for the first time ever courtesy of their new owner, Historic Autograph Company. Each art piece, which is 29 x 24 (mixed media on canvas), features a portrait of Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Bob Feller and two of Babe Ruth as they are individually imagined within the 1934-36 Diamond Stars set. Each day at the show, PSA will have four of the five paintings on display directly at their booth (#169), while one painting will be rotated out daily to display at the Historic Autograph Company booth (#359). Along with the custom-framed artwork, PSA will also be showcasing a complete 1934-36 Diamond Stars set.
Special Edition SMR
While supplies last, PSA will be handing out thousands of free, special-edition SMRs in Cleveland this summer. And in honor of this year’s location, the SMR magazine cover will showcase a realistic action portrait, painted by Arthur K. Miller, of Cleveland’s very own Bob Feller. The highlights of this issue include, but are not limited to, a special feature article dedicated to Rapid Robert’s Registry Sets, a brief overview of some of the best baseball and football players to don the Cleveland duds and an anniversary piece paying homage to the 1964 Topps baseball set which turned 50 this year!
