Press Pass will release the first NFL Players Inc licensed cards of projected top draft pick, Eli Manning on April 3rd. As part of National Trading Card Day, collectors will have the opportunity to collect the industry's first nationally distributed cards of the record-breaking Ole Miss quarterback. One of the best wide receivers entering the upcoming NFL draft, Roy Williams of Texas, is also included in the Press Pass National Trading Card Day offering.

"Press Pass has prided itself on being the first to market with top rookies and we are thrilled to bring collectors a sneak peak of two of the top players from the upcoming NFL draft as part of National Trading Card Day," explained Tom Farrell, Director of Marketing for Press Pass, a division of RC2 (NASDAQ: RCRC). "Press Pass 2004 Football will release in April with a comprehensive autograph and game-used jersey card lineup. National Trading Card Day provides a great opportunity to educate new collectors about our upcoming football releases."

The sports collectibles industry has designated Saturday, April 3, as National Trading Card Day and will celebrate the day with a one-of-kind, multi-sport card set produced through a unique cooperative effort by each of the country's leading sports card manufacturers and licensing bodies. The set will feature more than 50 cards of some of the hottest names in the sports and will be available free to consumers who visit participating sports card stores across the country. In addition to Eli Manning and Roy Williams, the Press Pass National Trading Card Day lineup includes cards of NASCAR superstars Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson, and Tony Stewart.
