The first NFL licensed product of the season is set to release in just 6 days. 2012 Bowman Signature will hit the shelves as a new high end product for this season. With an autograph or an autographed relic in every pack, you will get a ton of ink for your collection or to sell.
Each box of this product comes with 5 packs and 5 card per pack. As stated, every pack will feature an autograph or an autographed relic card. It appears as though this is a very rookie heavy product, with a few veteran autographs thrown into the mix. But the real value here will be the top picks autographs in paralleled form.
You may find 2 rookie autographed refractors and 3 rookie parallel autographs per box. There will also be some red ink parallels that are just limited to 15 copies. Parallels will be to 99, 25, 1, and printing plates. I’d imagine those superfractors would go for a pretty penny. You can also find dual and triple autographs like an Andrew Luck/Robert Griffin III dual auto. Nice, right?
You can also find your veteran autographs as well with the Inside the Numbers subset. With autographed relics which include jumbos, patches, and jumbo patches, it should be a great addition to what appears to be a rookie heavy product.
My only issue, getting these out so fast doesn’t give Topps the time to get these rookies in their NFL uniforms, unless that was just the case for the sell sheet. So I’m hoping we can get Mr. Luck in a Colts uniform by street date.
Bowman Signatures football releases on May 30, 2012, with a price around $180 from what I’ve seen online so far. Word is this product has a limited print run as well, which may help secondary values.
