A Card Set Fit for The King by Tracy Hackler

Press Pass officials on Tuesday released preliminary information and images on Elvis Milestones, the company’s fifth stand-alone trading card product devoted to the King of Rock and Roll. The product arrives next month delivering one autograph or memorabilia card per box and a unique “history-through-cards” MO that should work well in a medium seemingly tailor-made for such chronological remembrance.

“It’s nearly impossible to capture the life of such an important cultural icon in just one trading card set, but Milestones comes pretty close” says Tom Farrell, Press Pass’ Vice President of Brand Management. “The cards will read like a timeline of Elvis’ life, telling the story of a man who accomplished so much during such a short lifetime.”

In honor of The King’s 75th birthday, the 75-card base set strives to honor 75 of the most significant moments in Elvis’ life while the insert lineup will get fans as close to Elvis as they’ve ever been. The King’s Things memorabilia cards include such Elvis-worn memorabilia as swim trunks, jackets, shorts and pajamas. There’s also a brilliantly-named King Size Swatches parallel limited to just 25.

The Celebrity Signatures insert incorporates autographs from some of Elvis’ most recognizable costars and band members while Historic Cuts will include cut signatures from The King.

Milestones also includes perhaps the most sought after Elvis card ever produced, a 1/1 Signature Threads masterpiece that combines an Elvis cut signature with a piece of his clothing.

Renowned artist Joe Petruccio has created hand-drawn sketch cards to the product that will be limited to 20 or less and the six-card 3-D Pop-Up insert chronicle Elvis in some of his most memorable movie roles.

Previous Press Pass Elvis products have included Elvis Lives, Elvis Is, Elvis The Music and Elvis By the Numbers.
