Before the Cuts: Behind the Scenes with the Upcoming 2011 Donruss Limited Cuts

October 19, 2011

Several veteran members of the Panini America Product Development team recently spent significant portions of their months tirelessly researching, scrutinizing and acquiring cut signatures from the some of the most legendary sports, entertainment and political figures in American history.

The lion’s share of their labor will be featured attractions in the December release of 2011 Donruss Limited Cuts, a product previewed to rave reviews earlier this week right here on The Knight’s Lance.

Below is an exclusive peek at just some of the historic autographs the Panini America team has in store for the product, including incomparable cuts from the likes of Muhammad Ali, Roberto Clemente and Cy Young, to name three.

      We don’t release SRPs, but will release the MAP (minimum advertised price) in the coming weeks.

    Thanks for showing these off in their unaltered state. Obviously it’s a bit late to include in this product, but I’d really like to see a cut signature of Willie Mays before his current signature style was adopted.

    Just curious, who authenticates the cut signatures for Panini? I imagine these all go to someone before they are packed out to prevent future problems.

      Yes, sir. These are thoroughly scrutinized and authenticated prior to being processed.

        The side by side Roger Hornsby signatures look totally different. Who besides Panini guarantees the signatures?
