Panini America Addresses Printing Error in 2011 National Treasures Football Insert

April 16, 2012

Panini America officials on Monday announced that the company will honor up to 97 error cards from the 2011 National Treasures Football Pro Bowl Letterman insert that inadvertently included a foil “Authentic Autograph” stamp on the front.
The cards were not intended to be autographed and contain no authentication copy on the back, but that’s of little consolation to collectors who could be confused by pulling one of the cards. So in an effort to make things right, Panini America officials will honor those collectors holding any of the 97 cards with a randomly selected NFL autograph.

“We go to great lengths to ensure that errors don’t occur, and we regret that this one did,” said Jason Howarth, Panini America Vice President of Marketing. “But in an effort to make this situation right, we will give a randomly selected NFL autograph to our collectors who pull these cards and contact Panini America Customer Service.”
If you’re a collector holding one of these 2011 National Treasures Football Pro Bowl Letterman cards, contact Panini America Customer Service via email at [email protected] and use “Pro Bowl Letterman” in the subject line.
