2014 Panini Contenders Football Rookie Ticket Autograph Variations Guide

2014 Panini Contenders Football Rookie Ticket Autograph Variations Guide

Traditionally, one of the most popular football sets of the year for autographs, Panini Contenders is also big on the variations. The 2014 Panini Contenders Football Rookie Ticket Autograph Variations are no different. Coming in a couple of different versions, it adds up to a massive checklist for those with the patience to build the entire set.

Rookie Ticket Autograph RPS Variations

Most of the key rookies are found in the Rookie Ticket Autograph RPS part of the set. Featuring 40 players who participated in the NFLPA Rookie Premiere before the season started, these come with on-card signatures. All have at least one variation. Half of them have a pair of alternate versions.

The Variation I cards come with similarly styled photos. They're posed studio shots of players in their gear. Base Rookie Ticket Autographs are all action shots. Variation II cards are much closer to the base versions, many with very similar shots where an arm is in a slightly different position or the ball is in another hand.

According to Panini, Variation I cards have differing print runs. The rarest have 50 copies. Variation II cards are limited to 30 copies or less.

Other Rookie Ticket Autograph Variations

The Rookie Premiere participants are far from the only first-year players to have autographs in 2014 Panini Contenders Football. The set also has more than 80 other players who have variations. You don't need to look at the photos of the non-RPS rookies, though to know if you have a variation or not. The key is on the side of the card that has the "ticket" elements.

If the "Sec" (section) is at the bottom, it's a base version. If the "Seat" is closest to the bottom, it's a variation.

The Sec/Seat pattern does not apply to the RPS autographs.

Like the base versions, all types of 2014 Panini Contenders Football Rookie Ticket Autographs come with several parallels. These are noted and detailed on our full set checklist.

Below is an image guide for the 2014 Panini Contenders Football Rookie Autograph Variations. The first tab has the on-card RPS players with notes and side-by-side comparisons for every player. Where live card images aren't yet available, we've included mock-up images from Panini to show what they look like minus the signature. The second tab will include info for the non-RPS players as they surface as well as images for the variations.

  1. I love your website. I just wanted to let you know that I have listed a 2014 Panini Contenders #101B Aaron Donald Card SSP /50 card on Ebay. I noticed you don’t have an image for the card. Feel free to use the image on Ebay, or if you wish I can send you a better picture. Thanks.

    Jeff

  2. Contenders is always a fan favorite. I have a few of these variations.
