Short Story: Panini America Sheds Light on 2013 Contenders Football Insert SPs

February 11, 2014

EJ Manuel Rookie Premiere

It’s a phenomenon that takes place every year at about this time. Almost immediately following the release of a new year of Contenders Football, the annual frenzy commences as collectors across North America begin scrambling and scouring to determine the relative scarcity of the set’s ample selection of autograph SPs and variations.

It’s a mesmerizing chain of events to be sure, and one that often requires a little guidance. A few weeks ago we presented the preliminary list of SPs and SSPs among the 2013 Contenders Football’s Rookie Tickets and Rookie Ticket variations. Today, we’re back with a follow-up list that details the limited nature of three key autographed inserts from 2013 Contenders Football: Rookie Ink, Rookie Premiere and Pen Pals.

To help provide a a little insight into the SP/SSP craze surrounding 2013 Contenders Football, below is a breakdown of the three aforementioned sets that are either SPs (cards with quantities of 200 or less) and SSPs (cards with quantities of 50 or less).

    This list is in no way helpful.
    Why no actual print runs like recent years?

    Is it possible to get the actual numbers, #ed to 5, 10 & 49 would all be SSP, 75, 100, 149 & 199 would all be SP.

    Thanks

    Tracy is this list and the other one you put up the last of the Contender’s SP list’s were going to get? Any chance we get a list with actual print runs like years past? Any more help with this would be greatly appreciated throughout the card collecting community.

    • March 4, 2014 3:55 pm

      Let me see what I can get from our Product Development Team.

    Any chance you have talked to the product devolopment team yet? And if so, any info would be awesome.

    Would really like to see an actually print run with numbers instead of listing as SP and SSP’s. That really tells the collector nothing.
