It is finally confirmed, the truck will be here bright and early on Tuesday, June 1st! That signals the “official” start of the College Football season when you have your Phil Steele College Football Preview in your hands. Way back on Thursday May 13th we sent the final pages to the printer for this years 2010 Phil Steele's College Football Preview. The magazine was printed, bound and then put into boxes and stacked onto pallets. And as I type this the pallets are being loaded onto trucks and will be heading off to the newsstands and book stores around the country and a shipment will be sent to our office.

To all of you who purchased the magazine over the winter and spring, we have your envelopes ready and labeled and all we have to do is drop the magazine in the slip and they will be the first ones out the door well before noon on Tuesday! Also we will have a staff working over the holiday weekend and any order taken TODAY, Saturday, Sunday or Monday will be shipped out on Tuesday as well!

Then after June 1st all orders will be shipped within 24 hrs, unless ordered on Fri, Sat or Sun in which case they will go out on Monday. If you are like me, when you order something you want it in your hands as soon as possible so we are shipping all orders via priority mail. The Post Office does not guarantee Priority Mail but this is an approximate 2 to 5 day delivery time, which should get it there faster. If you order today or sometime this weekend, you should get the magazine well before the June 8th date when it hits the newsstands. The cost is just $13.70. Call 1-866-918-7711 to order yours today or visit the PhilSteele.com store and make sure to choose your specific cover below.

The official on sale date of the magazine is June 8th, but when our shipment gets here on Tuesday that means most distributors will have their deliveries as well and they will start sending them out to the book stores. The next delay is getting the bookstores to get them out of the back room and onto the shelves. There should be some stores with them on the shelves perhaps by next weekend, but most will be closer to that June 8th on-sale date. If you see the magazine in your area before June 8th, just send me a note via the Questions and Answers with Phil Steele and we will post the different locations on our website.
