Panini America unveils Playoff Contenders Baseball autograph short-prints


By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor

Panini America‘s newest edition of Playoff Contenders baseball is barely a week old — and that’s an eternity for many collectors wondering which autographed cards are short-printed in this year’s set.

The company took care of that mystery on Wednesday when it released the tiers of SPs in the MLBPA-approved product.

The rarest card in the product is the Rookie Tickets card of No. 2 overall pick Danny Hultzen, which is limited to just 87 copies.

See the rest of the list … after the jump.

    Why is it the one guy I want from the set (UVa’s own Danny Hultzen) is the rarest auto of the bunch

    So the next question is, when will this stuff be added to the database/OPG so I can get my SP autos in my org?

    This is a really fun break btw.
