Panini Peek: 2012 Prominence Football

May 24, 2012

Just one day after announcing the triumphant return of Momentum to its football portfolio following more than a decade away, Panini America is ready to release yet one more bombshell announcement: The introduction of the brand new 2012 Prominence Football, an eight-cards-per-box proposition that includes at least two autographs, one additional autograph or memorabilia card and five base cards or Legends.
The unique foundation of 2012 Prominence Football will be five different Rookie Card subsets devoted to the 35 young superstars who attended the just-completed 2012 NFLPA Rookie Premiere: Autographed Nameplate Letters, Autographed NFL Team Field Plates, Autographed Team Logo Patches, Autographed NFL Team Helmets and Autographed Event-Worn Jersey Cards.

Each Rookie Card subset will be numbered to matching quantities, creating five unique Rookie Cards for each of the 35 featured players.
Other highlights of 2012 Prominence Football, due out in late August, include:

  • Illustrious Signatures: A 30-card certified autograph insert highlighting the NFL’s best players ever to strap on a helmet, numbered to 99 or less.
  • Eminence Combo Signatures: A 15-card, dual-autograph set featuring some of the best dual threats of all time. Look for Triple Signature versions numbered to 10 or less.
  • Black & Blue Materials: A 30-card game- and event-worn memorabilia tribute to the hardest hitters in the NFL numbered to 49 or less.
  • Unlimited Potential Materials Signatures Prime: A 35-card insert featuring a prime piece of event-worn jersey and an autograph numbered to 49 or less.
