  1. When news first broke Panini had the Robert Woods red as the SSP has it changed?

  2. Wade » Panini’s post says the red is an SP and the blue is the SSP as noted in this post.

  3. According to what I can see at Panini, Cordarrelle Patterson Red and Green are SP, not Blue. Can you confirm?

  4. David » That appear correct.

  5. They just had various colours of sharpies on the table, contact me for a picture of the signing at the Rose Bowl.

  6. From what I have read and information given to me by other collectors, Panini “Inscriptions” are a very difficult card to pull. A few weeks ago I pulled a Tyler Eifert red auto Inscriptions. I was extremely shocked when I pulled the same card of Eifert with a black auto. As a collector, I know how hard it is to get a big hit. But to be able to pull the same card with a different ink variation was a exciting and interesting occurrence!
