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.

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.

2014 Panini Contenders Football Rookie Ticket 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.

    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.
