The 2012 Bowman Chrome Prospect autograph checklist has been revealed, check out who you can pull from this year’s product, with some great prospects on this list.
Shawon Dunston Jr.
Who are you most excited about pulling?
Mr. Luck has had a pretty solid rookie season thus far as the number one pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. Andrew Luck’s talent on and off the field must really resonate with Panini as he is the first NFL player to have an exclusive autograph and memorabilia deal with Panini Authentic.
With Luck’s addition, he joins Kobe Bryant, Blake Griffin, and Kevin Durant on the official roster of Panini Authentic exclusives. It is worth noting, this does not include trading cards. (The NFL does not allow exclusives on trading cards.) This exclusive agreement only includes memorabilia and autographed memorabilia which can now, only be bought on the Panini Authentic website.
When asked for clarification on this, Panini VP of Marketing Jason Howarth noted, “Andrew will continue to be a big part of our trading card biz – but he is exclusive for memorabilia via Panini Authentic.”
