Panini Confirms all short-printed RCs in 2011 Playoff Contenders Football

By Andrew Tolentino | Football Editor

With Panini America’s 2011 Playoff Contenders Football product now live and flowing on the secondary market, some collectors have managed to glean which cards are short-printed and which cards are not. Today, the company put speculation to rest by revealing the entire list of those coveted, short-printed Rookie Cards that seem to fuel the chase year after year.

Offering good reason to go after certain short-print Rookie Ticket cards, the manufacturer pointed out a Tyron Smith card that recently sold for $475.  “Quick: When’s the last time a Rookie Card of an offensive lineman sold for more than $450?” Panini’s Tracy Hackler rhetorically pondered. “The fact of the matter is that Smith’s is the shortest RC in the set with a print run of just 23 total copies.”

Current anecdote aside, it’s no secret that these cards have a history of selling well. Check out the lottery-like list of cards limited to 400 or less after the jump.

Just feel compelled to comment the sp’s are really getting out of hand sure feels like the 80’s.
It used to be fun when it happeded out a clear mistake but just as 2012 Baseball and prestige when is a sp not a sp. Just a gimmicj for card companys looking to fill their bottom line.
It to me undervalues the the set as a whole. I’m not impressed.
thanks for ther info if Iget one look for it on Ebay along my squirrel. Lets have a great set and let it go at that.
just saying…..Tom

I really wish that when card companies did something like this that they put some identifier on the card to show that it is a short print. I can imagine nothing worse than a someone pulling one and trading it thinking it was a nobody, only to find out later that it was some super short print. Plus putting a SP with only 23 copies in the base set really is a slap in the face to set collectors. I can only imagine that since the card companies love beating a dead horse that the next step will be an entire base set where every card is a SP of varying production runs with the hardest to get being a print run of 1.
