I opened three boxes today and got 6 on cards 2 per
Box:

Reuben Randle redemption
Devier Posey redemption
Kendall Wright
Jarius Wright
Justin Blackmon
Doug Martin

Wonder if that was a fluke or not I will have to check with the others that busted the rest if the case.

I promise you this is the exception rather than the rule...... Rueben and Devier may not be on card just because they are RPS guys doesnt mean a thing......

2 boxes and 1 on card. The second RPS was Wilson and had a sticker. Both had 6 autos per but wasnt the excitement of pulling 2 RPS on cards the big draw since most of those players are considered the top rookies?

This is why I have been buying mostly Topps this year. Panini is unfocused

Look at the RPS guys they were suppose to all be on card autos the ones that took their sweet time to sign or haven't yet got stickers out on them aka Egnew

If you count up all the autos that have the on card images (can see the legs) and not the sticker images (clear white strip at the bottom for the sticker) I bet it was at least 1 on card per box if not more.

This was a way to have less redemptions just imagine if all those RPS sticker guys were redemptions

They lie on every single product not just this one. They say "Autos of XXXX" and they put this crap in there instead which may or may not ever be filled. This is not a freaking auto for crying out loud. All card companies lie there butts off

I pulled one live on card in 3 boxes. I pulled two RPS redemptions, but they could end up being stickers.

No odds on how often certain cards fall in packs now, just the print runs. Panini covering their arse, knowing full well people would be pissed after they couldn't deliver on the sell sheet odds and price increase. They totally dropped the ball this year with the on card autos. Busted my case today and 9 of the 12 boxes were total poop, with only 1 on card auto, couple of the boxes had none. Got 72 autos total, so I can't really complain because I hit the stated odd of 5 autos per, but the quality was really lacking except for a few cards.

Well how about instead of b*tching and BUYING, you all do something about it?

Make it known that it's UNACCEPTABLE.

and BOYCOTT them.


If you stop giving them your money because of their shoddy promises/ethics, maybe they'll stop ripping you all off....

You're absolutely correct, the amount of guys who haven't returned their stuff is ridiculous.

Russell Wilson has been a redemption since October (SPA was singed months ago, hence why it's almost all live, same as last year) in everything live (think of things like this, if the cards are an on-card auto, they were sent to the player at least two months in advance, so if they're not signed, it's on the player).

Same goes for most of these guys. The majority of Panini RPA's have been stickers which has allowed for live product with relatively few redemptions, now it's getting gnarly because of guys dragging their asses. This isn't a Panini/Topps issue, this a player issue.

Patience will be needed, also, if you actually buy the sell sheets at face value, you're a complete rube.

Have to blame NFL license fees for a lot of this. Both Topps and Panini are stuck. They need to crank out all this stuff in order to pay the bills. Players don't sign on time. We all know some of these guys are signing thousands of autos for them and can't keep up.
Just a huge problem of too much stuff, not enough autos to sell and huge fees NFL collects.
Maybe some day soon Topps and Panini will be out of license card market all together and go UD route of just using College stuff in order to make money. With no massive fees to NFL and players assocation.

I don't have the time or the knowledge of football cards, but I wish someone would do the math and figure out how many autographs guys like Michael Egnew have in 2012 products alone.

Luck would be high too, but I'm sure Egnew is higher haha. I'd imagine it's got to be close to 20,000

I feel like I just got kicked in the junk every time I open a Panini product. I think after the first and only box of Prizm I bought I won't be buying anymore of their products.

Sell sheet and sites state 2 On-card autos per box. Yes the fine print states..."All information is accurate at the time of posting – content is subject to change"

But, when or where was this ever "true"? Were there 2 on card autos per box but the Hamburgler took one out? Was it just true In Hacklers brain?
2 on card autos per box was never TRUE.

I wonder the odds of people who dont like Panini for whatever reason, complain about it, yet continue to buy their products.

Prizm hype, strata hype, contenders hype ALL TRASH. Doesnt matter if its Topps or Panini they are in the business to make money and the sheep will continue to hand over their hard earned money for $h!t in return.
