  1. Last week pulled a Contenders Rookie Roll Call Tim Tebow auto 10/10, but have been unable to locate a book price. Recently 6/10 had sold on ebay for $255.00 & 7/10 listed for $350.00.
    Can you help me out?

  2. @Keith: It’s too rare to have a book price this early. I would say it’s worth somewhere between $250 and $350, as card value is based on what a card sells for (ideally).

  3. Where can I find a checklist of how many cards each player signed for the 2010 Contenders Set?

  4. Here’s a link: http://www.cardboardconnection.com/news/panini-releases-2010-playoff-contenders-rookie-ticket-short-print-list

  5. Do you have a picture/photo of the actual Tim Tebow Panini Playoff Contenders Card wityh the 07 Heisman inscription? I want to verify the Tebow Contenders Card (07 Heisman inscription) I just purchased. Any help is GREATLY appreciated!!
