Puppy Bowl Trading Cards

It’s Free Dress Friday here on All About Cards. That means anything goes. With this huge sports weekend just about to start we would be remiss if we didn’t share with you cards of some of the biggest names to be taking the field this weekend. Names like Bubba, Freckles and Mr. Fantastic. Of course we are talking about Puppy Bowl XI. Seen by 13.5 Million viewers, this canine contest has withstood the test of time. 
It's no small production. The Puppy Bowl uses 17 cameras, including the now famous water bowl cam to put viewers right into the action. Over 90 hours of footage is shot during two days of production. On the field there is a rotation of 95 rescue puppies between 12 and 21 weeks old, 21 kittens, 5 goats and 5 hamsters. There’s even an up to the minute Twitter feed run by a bird named Meep. There is also a Puppy Bowl Fantasy Game that you can play.

The main goal, besides providing cuteness overload, is to bring awareness to pet adoption through animal shelters. It’s impossible to accurately measure the impact this show has had but without a doubt untold fabulous pets have been placed in permanent homes thanks to the Puppy Bowl.

With all that goes into the making of the Puppy Bowl and the amount of fans that watch, how on earth are there no Puppy Bowl trading cards? It’s not such a far fetched idea. especially with this year’s introduction of two opposing teams, Ruff vs. Fluff.

That’s were we come in. Always looking to help collectors, we have created the complete unauthorized 2015 Puppy Bowl XI trading cards, at least digitally. The set comes includes base cards, SP variations, inserts and autograph cards. Enjoy this sampling for now.

Throw Back Thursday Vintage TBT Card for January 29, 2015

Here is our Throw Back Thursday Vintage TBT Card for January 29, 2015. Ernie Banks
The choice of Ernie Banks this week is an obvious one. When we lost Mr. Cub this week, we lost a large icon that represented the love and fun of the game.

This is as far as I can throw it back, for now, from my collection. It's the 1961 Topps Baseball Ernie Banks #350 which is slightly better than the look of the scan. It's still in a 4 screw down holder with  a bit of a scuffed up top.
Enjoy this throw back vintage and check in Thursdays for more Vintage TBT cards.
