September 12, 2007 (FPRC) -- The $1 billion-a-year* sports collectibles industry finally has its next BIG thing. The cutting-edge product is called the Mega Ticket and it’s created from an authentic game ticket that is enlarged 500%, printed on archival canvas, and professionally stretch-mounted. Officially licensed by Major League Baseball™ and the National Hockey League™, the product utilizes state-of-the-art technology and equipment. The result is stunning wall art that’s perfect for adding autographs.
“Roger Clemens, Derek Jeter, and Cal Ripken Jr. have all recently signed quantities of our Mega Tickets. Show promoters and fans have been waiting for something new and now they have it,” says Dean Macchi, president of That’s My Ticket whose company specializes in creating sports and concert ticket displays. “Our World Series™ and Stanley Cup™ Mega Tickets have also been quickly embraced by consumers. In fact, Anaheim Ducks™ and Boston Red Sox™ fans have been buying them as fast we can make them.”
Mega Tickets are also available to commemorate NHL and MLB All-Star Games as well as historic milestone moments such as 500 goals, 500 home runs, 300 wins, no hitters, and more including record-breaking events such as Barry Bonds’ 756th HR. Products range in overall size up to 15" (w) by 35" (h) by ¾" (d). Mega Tickets are available at NHL.com, MLB.com, and many team stores ranging in cost from $99 to $599 for autographed versions.
“Mega Tickets are the ultimate item for fans who remember where they were when that special game or event happened. They also serve as a fantastic new item to get autographed,” says Matt Lane vice-president of Sports Images, one the nation’s leading sports collectibles distributors. “Almost every athlete we have had autograph these has asked if they can have one for their own collection.”
That’s My Ticket is working on adding NFL, NBA, NASCAR, and Concert Mega Tickets to their product line
