'NFL EXPERIENCE' RECAP
Success on the Home Turf
Friday, February 08, 2008
The Topps Super Bowl Card Show at the NFL Experience Presented by Home Depot set up camp adjacent to University of Phoenix Stadium, home of Super Bowl XLII. From Jan. 24 - Feb. 3, fans from all over the world visited Glendale, as the biggest sporting event in the world took center stage here in our own backyard.
It's the sixth consecutive Super Bowl we've attended and exhibited at the NFL Experience, but the first time we've been the host city for any of the major sporting events.
The first weekend saw an army of local fans show up, checking out two-ups, vintage figures and some prototypes for upcoming figures on display in the McFarlane's Sports Picks booth. We offered exclusive action figures of Arizona Cardinals stars Larry Fitzgerald and a Matt Leinart Collector's Club exclusive. Additionally, our store at the Westgate City Center, about a 5-minute walk from University of Phoenix Stadium, was selling an exclusive of their own, Cardinals receiver Anquan Boldin.
The second weekend brought more out-of-towners to the show, as fans from New York and New England converged on Glendale for the big game. We were able to provide Super Bowl Exclusive sets for fans throughout both weekends.
We have a very limited amount of all three figures - Fitzgerald, Leinart and Boldin - still available at our Westgate store. If you'd like to add to your collection, act now, because these figures will go fast.
Our thanks to the fans and collectors who came out to the NFL Experience and stopped by our booth. Arizona did an amazing job hosting sports' biggest event. And we are already getting excited for next year in Tampa!
