ON THE COLLECTORS' BEAT: IS TED WILLIAMS CARD CO. GONE?
Published April 19, 1995
According to Norm Cohen of N.Y. NEWSDAY, "all signs point to the fact that" the Ted Williams Card Co. is out of business, "although there have been no official confirmations." Cohen notes their MA-phone number has been disconnected. Tom Cosentino of Lapin East/West, who represented the card company until they stopped paying their bills: "It was a niche product that fell into the black hole of a bad market" (N.Y. NEWSDAY, 4/16)....The "Ring Leaders Phone Cards," inserted in Topps Stadium Club baseball Series I, will also be inserted in Series II due May 15. At a rate of one per 96 packs, the 13 different cards each contain three minutes of long distance phone time (Topps)....NASCAR's SuperTrucks will be featured in an 80-card set from Finish Line Collectibles, which will also include phone card inserts (Baltimore SUN, 4/16)....In his upcoming book, "Card Sharks: How Upper Deck Turned a Child's Hobby Into a High Stakes Billion Dollar Business," Pete Williams examines Upper Deck's "metoric rise" under President Richard "Mac" McWilliam (MacMillan Publishing).
