SAGE President Tom Geideman Highlighted in Sports Illustrated
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: SA•GE Collectibles, Inc. President Tom Geideman was highlighted in a Sports Illustrated article in the August 24, 2009 issue entitled "The Last Iconic Baseball Card."
Among the highlights in the article SI notes that Geideman was responsible for putting Ken Griffey Jr. on what "could very well be the last iconic rookie card ever made."
After many successes in the industry like the above, Tom Geideman and Robert Sadlak became fed up with the overproduction and over-proliferation of products in their beloved hobby,and decided to put their money where their mouths were. In 1998, backed by creative determination, a patent pending process, and nearly every penny they had to their names the two formed their own card company. Borrowing the first two letters of their last names they incorporated SA•GE in June of that year.
As Sports Illustrated points out, "sets are defined by their rookies, and the Griffey pick was a defining set... After making the Mariners out of spring training in '89, Griffey was an immediate sensation."
The same can be said for many of the rookies included in SAGE2, SAGE Autograph, HIT 2009 Football High Series, and HIT 2009 Football Low Series, the very first authentic Draft Football issues to be released in 2009. Don't miss out on the action!
