Visual Guide to all 2012 Panini Playoff Contenders Rookie Ticket Photo Variations

It’s our favorite time of year, we think of it as Christmas in January February for all us hobbyists. It’s Panini’s Playoff Contenders release time! With each years release of the product, Panini strives to make the set more interesting and collectible. They have a tradition of creating short-print variations of players that typically sell for obscene amounts of cash, and recently they have started to add variations for each card in the set.

This year, Panini unveils a new chapter for the product, where it appears that EACH player in the Rookie Ticket set has a variation card. Yesterday we gave you a quick glimpse into how you can find the variations for 2012 Rookie Ticket Autos. Today we bring you a visual guide to see the differences between each of the Rookie Tickets in the set.

Find more 2012 Playoff Contenders Rookie Ticket Autos on eBay!

Tomorrow we will be adding the RPS Rookie Ticket Photo Variations to the site, as well as any other variations that happen to pop up online for everyone to check out.

Easy way to identify 2012 Panini Contenders Football Rookie Ticket Autograph Variations

/dailywaxcards

It appears that Panini has made it easier this year to identify the photo variations of players they have slipped in 2012 Playoff Contenders Football. On the reverse side of the card, you will find that variation versions are missing the players details in the box that surrounds the team logo in the lower right side of the card.

These variation photos were posted on their blog earlier this week, and you can see the different photos on the front, along with the differences on the rear of the cards.

Happy hunting!

Our Top 10 List of Joe Flacco’s Best Rookie Cards

dailywax
Football

/dailywaxcards

Yesterday, we brought you the Top 10 list of Colin Kaepernick Rookie Cards. Today, we are going to focus on Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco. Flacco has been the starter for Baltimore since his 2008 rookie year, after being drafted in the first round out of the University of Delaware. Flacco has a huge frame, standing at 6’6″ and weighing 250 lbs, making his body the prototypical size for a NFL quarterback. What makes him even more special is his arm strength, which typically assists in most of Joe’s down field big plays.

Currently his cards are at a much more affordable level than his counterpart Kaepernick, but that won’t last if Joe is the one holding up the trophy at the end of the game.

Panini Announces 2010 Playoff Contenders Rookie Ticket Auto Variations

Late last week, we gave you a sneak peek at Panini’s 2010 Playoff Contenders Rookie Ticket Autograph set. Today, we are bringing you some interesting news and an interesting twist on these Rookie Ticket Autos. It appears as if there are two versions of some of the on-card Rookie Ticket Autos. It has yet to be confirmed which version may be a short-print (SP).

The product officially hits the shelves today, so we should be able to get an idea if one version is more of an SP than the others as more of the cards hit eBay.

Check back for updates to this developing story.

Panini recently released images of the 33 on-card autos that will be available in their upcoming 2010 Playoff Contenders release. The cards, which pay subtle homage to the 1998 release of Contenders Football, feature large crisp images of each player along the left side of the card and continue with the ticket theme along the right side with stadium and team information. The card also features a bold, on-card autograph on the bottom of the card.

Contenders Football is always a fan favorite, and the 2010 set looks to be as great as any.

Patriots RB Danny Woodhead’s first NFL trading card

It’s the type of story typically written just in Hollywood. An undrafted, undersized, unrecognizable, and very unnoticed athlete shoots into superstardom. The New England Patriots Danny Woodhead, who rewrote the NCAA records book out of Chadron State (Nebraska), was one of the best kept secrets during the NFL preseason, until the Jets had to cut him to make room on the roster. The only thing he has done since signing with the Patriots: Produce.

He was rookie last year, but did not have any NFL licensed sports card, until now. Woodhead is not completely without a card, he has an autographed version from Sage that is slowly becoming worth its weight in gold. Panini has announced that Woodhead will be in their upcoming 2010 Contenders release, slated for release on February 6, 2011.

Panini recenlty posted an article announcing the arrival of their Tim Tebow 2010 Contenders Rookie Autographs back to their offices. Upon watching the video (see below), I noticed that Tebow had returned various inscribed versions of his Rookie Ticket and Rookie Ink autos. They featured such variations as “God Bless, Go Broncos, GB² (God Bless, Go Broncos), and some of his favorite Bible scriptures.

By the way, check out that awesome 1 of 1 Championship Ticket.
