What started out as a fantastic good will gesture by the Topps Company by offering collectors the opportunity to turn-in their wrappers from 2012 Bowman Baseball in exchange for some pretty neat looking Blue and Red Wave refractors. What an amazing concept and great promotion to help push sales of one of their flagship lines.

After months of hype and anticipation for the product, a number of collectors were able to get the product up to 2-full days ahead of it’s scheduled release. With a limited number of packs (10,000) being available to the public, these collectors who received their orders early obviously had the advantage of getting their wrapper redemption fulfilled.

The hunt is on.

Panini announced today that they have inserted so super short print variations in their 2011 Contenders Football release. These variations are only on the on-card Rookie Photo Shoot cards, but each one has a small and unique twist to find the variation. Unlike last years, where it was a simple variation in the pose, this year – you have to work for it to find the differences. Early indications also are looking like these variations have a very limited printed run.

The 2011 Contenders Football product released one week ago today, so I decided to take a look at what some of the most popular selling cards were from the set, so far.

The table below shows a comprehensive list of total amount of Contenders autos sold, the high, the low, and the average price. 12 of the 135 rookie autographs have not surfaced on eBay as of today. 22 of the 135 are currently selling for more than $50 on average, and 41 of the 135 are selling for more than $20 on average.

Every year with Panini releases their Contenders Football product, the speculation around which autographed rookie tickets will be short printed begin to pop up. Last year, a number of the perceived short prints from the hobby release, became common inserts after the product hit the retail store shelves. That could be exactly what we are going to see again for this year, although, Panini has not confirmed if they will be doing 2011 Contenders in retail.

Below is a sortable table of all of the Rookie Ticket Autographs in the product and a corresponding number of current and closed auction so far on eBay. I put this together to attempt to get a better picture of which cards may short printed, and which others were the super short prints. As of today, there are still 11 cards that have not surfaced on eBay – which is leading me to believe some have been held back for the retail product.

2012 Topps Baseball Short Print (SP) Variation List

In it’s 2012 baseball release, Topps has, once again, inserted some variations for some of the regular cards in the set. Like most years past, Topps keeps these Easter egg items under wraps and lets the public try and find all of the oddities that are included with in their print run. These short print (SP) variations are alternative photos for the regularly issued card in the set.

There has already been a lot of hype around the Rally Squirrel variation that was inserted into the set, as many media outlets began to pick up the story, the copies that have already appeared on eBay began to reach extremely high prices. As of now, we are unsure of print runs or scarcity of any of the SP cards inserted in the 2012 Topps baseball product.

The first 2011 Topps Heritage Minor League Bryce Harper Autograph has landed on eBay and the card looks to be as advertised based on all of the sell sheet photos. The seller claims the card is numbered to 154 on the back of the card, and based on the image provided in the auction, it appears these cards feature bold, rich, autographs – compared to some of the duller versions in his earlier 2011 Bowman releases.
