Panini America Shares Ink-Color Quantities for 2012 Elite Football Rookie Inscriptions

July 29, 2012

One of the most-asked questions in the football-card world since the release of 2012 Elite Football earlier this week goes something like this: “When will Panini America release the ink-color breakdown of the Rookie Inscriptions autographs.”

We’re happy to report that the answer is “today.” What follows is the complete Rookie Inscriptions variation breakdown, including how many of each ink-color variation each player in the set signed. Enjoy.

You can find a comprehensive gallery of the buzz-generating acetate cards in this set right here.

    Can’t wait to try and get me some Acetate Red Inks! Hopefully a LUCK or a GRIFFIN! But that’s not my “LUCK” lol 🙂 But I’ll try! Thanks Panini for the updates!

    Hey Tracy i have a Question a few months ago you had a contest to win some of these beauties well when i recieved the Auto i noticed that the back of the card wasnt completly finished! It doesnt have the guarantee auto by Panini and the info about the player that they usually have on the back! Would u consider these cards 1of1s or were they all done like that in the set, im confused if u could shine some light on this subject that would be awsome!!!

      Your cards are different from the one that were inserted into the sets. These were cards specifically made for the players from the NFL Rookie Photoshoot to keep. Panini was just nice enough to disperse a couple of these versions into the hands of collectors. You’ll notice at the top it has “Personal Inscription” on the acetate. This is to differ from the pack version and the player version. So yours is indeed rarer. That was a great contest to win, wish I got one of those. Enjoy!

      PS – you can also check back to those contest blogs for more specific information about those cards.

        That’s what I thought! I was just personally confused when I saw the picture that was posted since the cards in it also say “Personal Inscription” on them. Seems to just be the same picture from that contest and not a new one for this post which confused me some. (BTW, I won an Andrew Luck card from that contest!)

    What are the blue ink with “Personal Edition” numbered to? Are these different than “Personal Inscription”s?
