Think you can handle “the Toughest Sport on Earth”?  Action packed with 2,000 pound bulls, courageous bullfighters, and the toughest cowboys in the world, Press Pass “8 Seconds” Professional Bull Riders (PBR) Trading Cards will bring you closer to the action than ever with outstanding photography as well as authentic autographs and memorabilia cards from all of your favorite riders and bullfighters!

In addition to the authentic autograph and memorabilia cards, Press Pass “8 Seconds” Trading Cards will feature a 100-card base set covering the gamut of the PBR tour with exciting subsets such as Luck of the Draw, Riders, Bullfighters, Bulls, and The Short-Go. Special, limited edition foil board insert cards will also be randomly inserted into packs. Top stars in the set include J.B. Mauney (Mooresville, N.C.), Kody Lostroh (Longmont, Colo.), Justin McBride (Elk City, Okla.), Cody Lambert (Merkel, Texas), Guilherme Marchi (Leme, Sao Paulo, Brazil), Adriano Moraes (Cachoeira Paulista, Sao Paulo, Brazil), Flint Rasmussen (Choteau, Mont.), and more! Also look for bull favorites such as Code Blue, Chicken on a Chain and Little Yellow Jacket. 

The centerpieces of the card set are the authentic autograph and memorabilia cards. With at least three autograph cards and three rider or bullfighter–worn memorabilia cards in each 24-pack hobby box, collectors and fans alike will experience a thrilling ride when busting open every box. 8 Second Signatures feature personally signed trading cards from all of the current stars of the PBR Tour, as well as past greats. Rider Relics memorabilia cards showcase a swatch of various rider-worn memorabilia such as western shirts, gloves, and cowboy hats. 

Beckett Magazine, the sport card collector’s main source of what’s hot and what’s not on the market, reviewed Press Pass “8 Seconds” Trading Cards and found they “bucked me as quickly and as wildly as any cowboy who’s had the misfortune of mounting Code Blue in the chute.” Check out the full review here. 

“We are thrilled to bring fans and collectors the first authentic PBR autograph and memorabilia cards,” explained Tom Farrell, VP of Brand Management for Press Pass Inc.  “Partnering with one of the fastest growing sports in the world presents us with a great opportunity. We can’t wait to come out of the chute early next year kicking off a new season of PBR action.”
