Eric Byrnes is...Spiderman!

A superhero for legions of Arizona Diamondbacks fans will share the spotlight with one of the world's most famous superheroes Friday when the heavily anticipated release of Spider-Man 3 hits two Phoenix area movie theatres.

As FSN Arizona attempts to cast its web on the Valley's television viewers and promote The Eric Byrnes Show, Presented by Alltel, the network has made plans to release limited edition baseball trading cards featuring Byrnes. On Friday, 15,000 cards are set to be given away to movie goers who purchase tickets to Spider-Man 3 at two Phoenix-area theatres -- Gilbert 14 (1012 S. Gilbert Road) and Palm Valley 14 (1325 N. Litchfield Road). In addition, the Byrnes cards will also be given away to people who buy tickets for all the movies being shown at Chandler Cinemas (2140 N. Arizona Ave) beginning tomorrow as well.

When people purchase movie tickets, they will receive one of the 5x7 baseball cards at the ticket window. In all, 25,000 of these special cards have been printed and once they are all distributed to the public, no additional quantities will be produced. A limited number of cards will also be given away at Chase Field during Friday's D-backs game against the New York Mets by the team's Rally Backs entertainment crew.

"My dream car: the Shaggin' Wagon". Brilliant! This is why we love Eric Byrnes. I'm sure certain members of this forum will be queueing all night for these. :-)
