Press Pass shows off newest football inscription autos

By Susan Lulgjuraj | Beckett Football Editor

Press Pass is in final preparations for its latest pre-draft release. 2013 Press Pass Rookie Football comes out March 20th with six on-card autographs in every box.

One of the most popular features of Press Pass from year-to-year are the Autograph Inscriptions. Players sign their names, but with a little something extra.

Most of the 2013 NFL prospects went the safe route with their inscriptions, rooting on their college team. But a few players decided to change it up. Red Ink autographs are randomly inserted into the product.

Players include Matt Barkley, Manti Te’o, Tyler Wilson and others.

Check out the gallery below.

    Aside from no longer having team/college logos, I like them.

    Here is a question for you Chris:
    When will the card companies or the sport stop releasing this garbage. The only person they are hurting is the fans. We want quality products. Instead we get what they can give us.

    I think there should be a meeting of Topps, Upper Deck, and Panini. Lets get on board and figure out what we need to do to get to top quality products in all sports with proper league and player licensing. No more of this no logo crap!

    Matt: The business is a simple one. If people buy what a company makes, the company keeps on making it and sticks around. While these cards may not appeal to you, there are collectors who buy them — so Press Pass can keep making them.

    The NCAA license was awarded to Upper Deck via the Collegiate Licensing Company. Card companies could have all the meetings in the world if they wanted (doubt they would) — but it wouldn’t matter. The CLC is the entity that grants the licenses.

    I do like when the signer adds something personal to the auto, “Go Heels” or number, just a little something.

    Nice cards
