Some collectors might want to get their Christmas presents a day late.
Panini America is releasing its high-end 2012 Limited Football on December 26 with patches, Hall-of-Fame autographs and cut signature cards.
Limited is known for its on-card autograph Rookie Cards, and Panini doesn’t plan to disappoint. Every card in the product will be numbered to 399 or less.
Limited will feature 100 base cards, 50 Legends, 50 Phenoms and 35 Material Phenom RCs. Each seven-card box will have three hits, including at least one autograph, one Legend or Phenom, and three additional inserts or parallels.
Panini is looking at its game-used items. The Stadium Stars subset will showcase pieces of game-used equipment including helmets.
And there is good news for collectors that wanted more information on game-used materials on cards. Panini is including Game Day Materials, which are game-worn, game-dated items with prime pieces.
Here are some of Limited’s other highlights:
– Panini is including cut signatures in Limited celebrating the NFL’s history.
– Hog Heaven: Authentic football swatches signed in silver ink.
– Tag Team: Two players featured on a dual memorabilia card.
– Inked: Autographs from some of the best current and former players.
