Panini America Provides Incentive to RG III Collectors in 2012 Prominence Football

September 24, 2012

When Panini America’s new 2012 Prominence Football makes its hobby debut on Wednesday, it will be bolstered by five different Rookie Cards of each of the 35 superstars who attended the 2012 NFLPA Rookie Premiere.

In essence, five of Panini America’s most popular Rookie Card subsets — Autographed Nameplate LettersAutographed NFL Team Field PlatesAutographed Team Logo PatchesAutographed NFL Team Helmets and Autographed Event-Worn Jersey Cards — come together in one product to form the collecting catalyst for 2012 Prominence Football.

Each Rookie Card type for each player will be produced in identical quantities, creating a unique opportunity for player collectors. But for one player in particular, Washington Redskins rookie sensation Robert Griffin III, Panini America is going to sweeten the pot.

Since we all know you can’t spell “Griffin III” without the “III,” we’re going to reward the first collector to acquire the G-R-I-F-F-I-N from RG III’s Rookie Class Signatures subset (and then sends the letters to us for verification) with the three special “I” cards to complete their set.

So that’s your mission should you choose to accept this unique spelling spree that will begin in earnest when 2012 Prominence Football hits on Wednesday. Good luck.

When you’ve completed your G-R-I-F-F-I-N chase and have the cards in hand, email us at

    STELLAR promotion right here, it really captures the drive many of us collectors feel when we get one letter of our favorite player to get the rest. Good luck to the RG3 fans and collectors out there in their pursuit, thanks for another great giveaway Panini. Thanks as always Tracy!

    So, only one person will ever be able to spell out Griffen III or are these the only one’s with the inscriptions on the side?

        I’m serious Tracy, I appreciate what you are trying to do, but I feel you miss the mark sometimes. A little objective constructive criticism isn’t a bad thing, I’m willing to help if you want it. You know how to get a hold of me.

        Not at all. We love constructive criticism.
