FIRST LOOK: 2011 Prime Signatures Football


By Susan Lulgjuraj | Contributing Editor

For collectors looking for autographs, 2011 Prime Signatures Football seems to be the place to turn.

Scheduled for a mid-February release with autographs from rookies, veterans and legends, the product is a “re-imagined upgrade of the 2002 Playoff Prime Signatures Football issue,” Panini wrote in a release.

Each box will yield four cards: one autograph numbered to 249 or less, two base cards numbered to 499 or less and one additional base card or insert.

The 261-card base set includes 175 current stars and retired legends as well as 86 rookies.

The Rookie Cards will be autographed, including 36 on-card signatures from the players that attended this year’s NFL Players Rookie Premiere.

Some of the veteran and retired-player autographs in the set include Troy Polamalu, Matthew Stafford, John Elway, Barry Sanders, Dan Marino and Joe Montana.

The autographs come in tiered parallels: Silver (/75), Gold (/25), Platinum (/5 or less) and Printing Plates (1/1).

The Call to the Hall Signatures – featuring Hall of Famers – are numbered to 49 or less and Call to Hall Combo Signatures are numbered to 25 or less.

    Is it me or does this look just like 1996 Leaf Signature baseball. A good looking set regardless.

    4 cards/box. Only 1 autograph. Price will determine its success. Wouldn’t want to shell out too much for another Jordan Todman auto!
