The 2008 version of Press Pass Football will release April 22 and feature autographs and game-used collegiate jerseys from a number of this year’s top prospects.
Press Pass will feature cards of projected top-15 picks Darren McFadden (Arkansas), Matt Ryan (Boston College), Brian Brohm (Louisville) and Malcolm Kelly (Oklahoma). The autograph and memorabilia lineup includes projected first-round picks Rashard Mendenhall (Illinois), Jonathan Stewart (Oregon), Felix Jones (Arkansas), Limas Sweed (Texas), DeSean Jackson (California) and Mario Manningham (Michigan).
Each hobby box will offer four autographs per box from six distinct autograph levels. A limited number of “red ink” and “nickname” signatures can be found throughout all versions of the autographs. There will also be three levels of game-used collegiate jersey cards in the set.
“Press Pass Football includes a comprehensive roster of players that have the potential to star on the pro gridiron,” said Nick Matijevich, product manager for Press Pass. “As previous years have shown, there are always some great players who are drafted after the first round, and with talented juniors such as Kevin Smith, Ray Rice, Jamaal Charles and James Hardy declaring for the draft, there are bound to be more again this year.”
