SUPER BOWL XXXIX IS NEARLY HERE
Staffers in Jacksonville ... with Exclusive Figures for Sale
Friday, January 28, 2005
The wait is over. Super Bowl 39 in Jacksonville, FL, is here. Well, it's not quite gametime for the Patriots, the Eagles and their fans, but it is gametime for McFarlane's Sports Picks fans as our newest event exclusive figures go on sale tomorrow at the first weekend of the Topps Super Bowl XXXIX Card Show at the NFL Experience in Jacksonville.
We will be present throughout the event, which kicks off tomorrow, Saturday, Jan. 29 at 10 am at the JEA Park in downtown Jacksonville near the St. John's River, directly across from Alltel Stadium. Hours for the show are: Jan. 29, 10am-10pm; Jan. 30, 11am-8pm; Feb. 3, 3-10pm; Feb. 4, 3-10pm; Feb. 5, 10am-10pm; and Feb. 6, 10am-4pm. Please note, dates and times subject to change.
To cover the additional weekend of sales, each exclusive figure we're selling at the event will have a production run of 6,000 pieces. We will allocate a small amount of the exclusive product to sell on the first weekend, holding back the majority for the main week of the show.
McFarlane staffers will be in town to answer your questions and talk toys. We'll have two-up prototypes and packaged samples of many new and upcoming figures. And we'll have the aforementioned pair of exclusive action figures just for Super Bowl 39.BYRON LEFTWICH, Jacksonville Jaguars QB, No. 7, will be offered in his black alternate jersey.FRED TAYLOR, Jacksonville Jaguars RB, No. 28, will be offered in his classic teal jersey.The first weekend of the show, a very limited amount of the product will be available with a one-set per person limit. Beginning Feb. 3, a two-set per person allocation will be enforced. As always, these daily limits are subject to change depending on product demand. Product availability is not guaranteed. The exclusives are $15 each or the set for $25. Cash and Visa are the only payment options at the show. To alleviate lines, we will have two separate registers, one for cash and the other for credit. We urge cash sales if possible, as that process is much, much faster.
We know not all of you will be able to make it to Jacksonville for the big game and we wanted to reward our fans with a chance to win the Fred Taylor and Byron Leftwich exclusive figures online. To enter to win one of the two sets we're giving away, click here.
