For Sweet Shot, these great athletes signed a basketball leather card, an acetate card that looks like a backboard, a shoe leather card and a Sweet Spot baseball card that looks like a baseball. We have spent a lot of time developing and designing these autograph cards so collectors should enjoy getting two of them in each tin along with the other great content.”
