I'm wondering if the exclusive part of the deal is just for the packaging. The quote from Panini's CEO references seeing Manning "on a shelf" which likely means the packaging.

I didn't think the NFL/NFLPA allowed exclusive auto/mem deals for current players when it came to cards. If they did, I'd think we would have already seen the big name players signed to exclusive deals over the years like what happened in basketball.

I believe Brad is right on this. Guessing at some point Panini will start to offer signed memorabilia like UD online and in-store.

As I suspected, Manning is just the new "Trading Card Ambassador" for Panini. No exclusive auto deal for cards. But it was fun watching the outcry from the bloggers (*(*coughGellmancough*) who don't bother to do research before screaming that the world is ending, lol.
