Massive Ink Peek: 2012 Press Pass Football

By Andrew Tolentino | Football Editor
Whether he realizes it or not, Andrew Luck’s Stanford-themed inscription is telling of what many collectors will be shouting when they pull his exclusive, early-season autographs in 2012 Press Pass starting next week. (As in, “I just pulled an Andrew Luck auto, go card!” or “I’m about to sell this Andrew Luck auto, go card!”
The product, as previously noted, will be the first brand to offer Luck-inked cards before the NFL-licensed sets hit the market. Also including inscriptions and red ink from Robert Griffin III, Trent Richardson, Michael Floyd and many more freshman stars, here’s a look at how the March 21 release looks to extend the luck of St. Patrick’s Day.
All-American autographs, like the one above, and Power Picks will exclusively feature top prospects and can be found in three different numbered variations. Other on-card and limited components include:
Press Pass Signings: Featuring 70 newcomers with six different variations
Gold X’s and O’x numbered to 199 or less
Bronze hashmarks numbered to 99 or less
Blue football numbered to 50 or less
Red player image numbered to 15 or less (Target retail)
Green player image numbered to 15 or less (Wal-Mart retail)
Reflector parallels: Mirroring the 50-card base set
Holofoil numbered to 299
Proof Edition numbered to 100
Solo (1/1, hobby only)
Also, here’s a good look at the autograph checklist before the photo-clicking frenzy:

Luck sure has a pretty dull sig. I really liked some of the others, but Lucks dosen't really speak to me. Don't get me wrong, I would take it in a heart beat, but it just seems kinda regular. IMO

Memory is like the Packers when they're behind by two touchdowns in the 4th quarter....it comes back.

Press Pass usually has a pretty clean design, but that Luck card at the top of the page looks horrible.
