If he doesnt sign them, isn't it fraud?

If he signs 25 a minute it would take him 5000 minutes. Ouch.


4 days of straight signing? i'm in
Wait now, what did they say

So is this really an extra $30 for just a signed card? or am I missing something? Not trying to bash the HoF edition but just trying to understand what else is included.

No way he signed 125k items. Sorry, guys.


Maybe they used an autopen to do many of the signatures. Seems to have worked for President Obama.

What stadiums could they have that's exclusive? Maybe recreate the Vet so Wendell Davis could blow both his knees out again?


Wow, a Wendell Davis reference on CAG! Are you a Bears fan or just interested in catastrophic injuries? ;)

Anyway, they absolutely could have included 'classic' stadiums. I'm sure Redskins fans would like to play in a re-created RFK (fitting as 'Skins LB Chris Hanburger is part of the 2011 HoF class). How about allowing the Vikings to play outdoors in Metropolitan Stadium?

Moreover, they could have included international sites like Rogers Centre and Wembly Stadium (where actual 2011 games are scheduled this year)
or Azteca Stadium and Toyko Dome (where previous NFL games have been played).

To me, this adds more value to the *game* than any of the current extras. But then again, I dont (intentionally) collect games (backlog notwithstanding ;)).

It's not often someone blows out both knees on the same play!

Look. DLC is nice. But it adds absolutely NO long term value (i.e. Dragon Age 2 signature ed.). When a game is released with DLC that is thought to be exclusive or limited everyone goes bananas. Great; you can have your DLC that everyone else will have shortly thereafter. I want something that adds longterm value so that my game isn't worth just its weight in turd one month, six months, six years later.

To me DLC is way way way overrated and something that can be (edit: Should be) patched in via an upgrade or download at some later point.

This site cracks me up; so far I've heard that "everything" included in CE/LE/SE is stupid; Statues, Helmets, Action figures, Playing cards, Art books, etc. Sometimes you just can't win.

Edit: Unless you throw in boxers, a pillow case and replica pizza box... but then again it is COOL to be UNCOOL

No 125,000 total. Meaning 62,500 copies for the ps3, and 360 each. He is signing only 124,998 cards with regular ink. There will be 2 cards signed in 24K gold. One on each system.

To the TC I don't trust amazon with limited editions like this anymore, since the bad experience I had with record of Agarest War Zero LE. I also see amazon is still taking preorders on Gears 3 LE even when GS stopped a month or 2 ago

Yeah, that's pretty much how I feel about it. Throw in one more thing: I dont like the 'steelbook' cases either. I realize that I personally just dont care about 'collector's editions'. I have a few, but the ones I have are all things that I got for less than the cost of the vanilla game at the time. The one limited edition that I bought for full price was for the first Assassin's Creed. The DVD was cool....the first time watching it. But then I ended up trading the whole collection on Goozex as I realized that the box took up too much space and I didnt have / didnt want to make a space to display the figure.

So yeah, I dont find much use for the trinkets. However, when there is truly exclusive content like Madden 09 having some of the older games/rosters included, that's more interesting to me. I might actually get some use out of that rather than a card, doll, cat helmet, etc. that is just going to wind up in a box in my basement.

I agree with your statemens. Their really isn't much use for those "trinkets" beyond the novelty of owning or displaying them but some of us on this site support our gaming habits by unloading those trinkers onto buyers who are willing to pay a premium

When I first heard about this, I swore it was 2 cards were gold cards. As in made of gold (leaf?)... not just signed in gold ink.
