Is it love at first sight? Or is this just lust? February 15, 2012, we will find out.
2011 Panini Prime Signatures football is a newly rehashed product based off of it’s old product by Donruss in 2002. As the name of the brand says, this product will contain purely signatures inside a 4 card box.
The contents of that box are as follows: an autographed card numbered to 299 or less, 2 base cards numbered to 499, and either an additional base card or an added insert.
For a small product, the checklist is quite big. At 261 cards, you will find a wide range of cards, making set building this product near impossible. There are 175 currents stars and retired players and 86 rookies. However, every rookie card is autographed and the players who attended the Rookie Premiere will feature on-card autographs.
There are 30 boxes in a case which leads me to believe that the price on this product may not be too bad either. Each case will yield 8 to 9 on-card rookie autographs, 10 to 11 other rookie autographs, and 10 to 11 current stars or retired player autographs.
Every veteran autograph will be paralleled to 75, 25, 5, and 1 of 1 cards along with printing plates with a checklist highlighted by players like Troy Polamalu, Matthew Stafford, John Elway, Barry Sanders, Dan Marino, and Joe Montana. While the rookie autographs will be paralleled to 199, 49, 25, and 1 of 1 cards along with printing plates.
You can also find some other subsets like Signing Bonus Signatures featuring dual autographs numbered to 49 or less of players like Tom Brady, Adrian Peterson, Aaron Rodgers, and Peyton Manning. Or maybe you’ll pull a Call to the Hall signatures or dual signature card featuring members of the NFL Hall of Fame.
All this and more in a product that looks like a mix of Topps Inception and Panini’s Limited product.
