2011 Playoff Contenders Football Rookie Ticket Variation Guide

2011 Playoff Contenders Football Rookie Ticket Variation Guide

Growing up, my sister had a subscription to Highlights magazine. I couldn't read then, but I always poured over the "Spot the Difference" puzzles. They challenged you to have a keen eye to spot lots of subtle things. In a similar vein comes 2011 Playoff Contenders Football Rookie Ticket variations featuring the 36 players from the 2011 Rookie Premiere (numbers 201 to 236 in the set). Much like McFarlane figure variants, only a sharp eye can catch the small differences between the regular cards and the short-printed variations.

While it may take away some of the fun and the hunt, we've put together a complete guide to the 2011 Playoff Contenders Football Rookie Ticket variations. That way, you can tell if you have a regular versions or a short print. We've also included variation print run information as provided by Panini.

Variations are not noted on redemption cards. They will be distributed randomly with the regular versions once they start shipping. We've included cropped images for the photos used on redemption cards to show what collectors can expect.

In the guide below, the first image is the regular version. The second is the short-printed variation. We've used arrows to highlight the differences.

    Julian (ID 39267) Hi Julian,

    I’m not totally clear on your question. His variation is missing the logo on the front of the helmet and I just noticed on a third look that the variation is also missing his hair flowing out of the back of his helmet. Jones is also a redemption.

    On the Mark Ingram the NFL Shield is also missing from his glove.

    Also, on the Jamie Harper variation, he is missing his arm bands :)
