Comprehensive 2012 Elite Football Rookie Inscriptions Guide

Although not serial numbered, Panini has confirmed print runs for each 2012 Elite Football Rookie Inscriptions color variation. There is no pattern among the colors. For one player, green might be the hardest to get. For others, it might be more common. Not all players signed in all four colors either. Michael Egnew and Ryan Broyles signed with only one color.

Taking all color variations into account, the Ronnie Hillman green ink 2012 Elite Football Rookie Inscriptions card is the rarest. The Broncos rookie signed just two cards in that particular color.

Combining all colors, Luck and RG3 are among the toughest players to pull. Each signed 80 total cards. The only player to sign fewer is Justin Blackmon. He autographed 73 total cards for the set.

Below is a full 2012 Elite Football Rookie Inscriptions checklist. Included is the number of autographs each player signed for each color as well as a combined total. You will also find an image for each player and their team.

Ryan's collecting origins began with winter bike rides to the corner store, tossing a couple of quarters onto the counter and peddling home with a couple packs of O-Pee-Chee hockey in his pocket. Today, he continues to build sets, go after inserts with cool technologies, chase Montreal Expos and finish off his John Jaha master collection.

  1. This subset for me is overrated. Have a couple in hand and unless you are putting white fillers behind it the design gets lost. I display my cards and up against a wood or black background any color auto just looks missing as well as the graphic on the card.
