Panini America Previews the Pen Pals Insert Coming in 2012 Prime Signatures Football

September 23, 2012

Fifteen cards. Fifty-one autographs. That’s the quick math at work in the ink-addled gallery that follows previewing the vaunted Pen Pals insert coming later this season to 2012 Prime Signatures Football. The incredible display of ink was collected by Panini America at last May’s 2012 NFLPA Rookie Premiere and includes on-card signatures from more than 25 of the top rookies from this season.

The venerable Pen Pals insert has been one of the hobby’s most adored multi-player autograph inserts since its landmark debut way back in 1998 as part of the Inscriptions brand. In the 15 seasons since, more than 340 single cards — featuring veteran stars and first-year phenoms alike — have carried the Pen Pals name.

But with one of the most high-upside rookie crops in years gracing this year’s installment, look for the Pen Pals franchise to receive a considerable boost in profile and secondary-market performance when 2012 Prime Signatures releases late this season.

Until then, we get you ready for another glorious NFL Sunday with this extensive preview gallery. Enjoy.
