February 2, 2004 (12:43pm): PACIFIC SIGNS EXCLUSIVE DEAL WITH TNA WRESTLING
LYNNWOOD, WA. -- Pacific Trading Cards, Inc. and TNA Wrestling have
entered into a relationship that has made Pacific the official
trading card company of TNA Wrestling.
TNA (Total Nonstop Action) Wrestling is featured every Wednesday
night on pay per view around the world and is also in syndication
with TNA Xplosion, on cable and dish providers throughout the US and
Canada with an expected reach of 40 million homes this year. TNA has
become professional wrestling's fastest growing circuit, attracting
such names as Sting, Lex Luger, Raven, AJ Styles, Roddy Piper, Dusty
Rhodes, D'Lo Brown and many more popular wrestlers. One of TNA's
biggest matches is expected to happen in the spring, when Hulk Hogan
will take on TNA's Jeff Jarrett.
Pacific TNA Wrestling trading cards will be released in April and
will include TNA stars as well as NWA legends. Also included in the
set will be cards of the popular TNA Girls, as well as the on-air
talent, which includes well-known hobby personality and current TNA
commentator Don West, formerly of Shop At Home.
"We are excited to add TNA Wrestling to our stable of products for
2004," said Jeffrey Morris, Pacific's Vice President of
Marketing. "TNA has shown tremendous growth in the past year and its
popularity is increasing each month. Pacific plans to showcase the
stars of TNA Wrestling while delivering a fun and collectible trading
card set for all wrestling fans."
For TNA, the relationship with Pacific is the first of many that will
increase the popularity and brand awareness of TNA Wrestling. Other
TNA items available this year will be a series of DVDs as well as
other licensed merchandise to be announced at a later date.
Pacific also plans to include a non-permanent tattoo in every pack,
while each box will include at least one autograph and an event-used
memorabilia card. Packs will have a suggested retail price of $2.99.
