The 2010 Playoff Contenders Football Short Prints Reveal: Legendary Contenders Autos

February 28, 2011

One of the most asked questions these days among passionate football folks has nothing at all to do with the NFL’s expiring CBA, Cam Newton’s 40 time or whether or not the Green Bay Packers have what it takes to repeat. No, the most prolific query making the rounds is something much more collecting focused.

“When will Panini America release short-print quantities for 2010 Playoff Contenders Football?” I’m glad you asked.

The short answer to that question is “right now,” beginnig below with the SPs from the product’s Legendary Contenders Black Autographs insert. The longer answer, though, is that this list will be followed later in the week by the SP list for the Super Bowl Tickets Black Autographs (Wednesday) and, hopefully, the highly coveted SP list for 2010 Playoff Contenders Rookie Ticket variations. 

Until then, here are the pertinent digits for the scarcer Legendary Contenders Black Autographs, followed by a partial gallery of some of the sweet handiwork. Stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance later this week for continued updates on the short prints from 2010 Playoff Contenders Football.
