Andrew Luck Presents the 2012 Panini Prominence Rookie Card Variation Guide

Andrew Luck Presents the 2012 Panini Prominence Rookie Card Variation Guide

One of the key parts to 2012 Panini Prominence Football is the promise of five different rookie cards for the year's biggest first-year players. We're not talking different foil highlights either. Each design is distinct. Some are vertical, others horizontal. Some have player-worn jersey swatches. Others have manufactured memorabilia pieces.

Despite their differences, the five rookie designs have a couple of key things that are the same. All 35 players maintain the same checklist spot. Andrew Luck is #231 on the Field Plates checklist. He's also #231 on the Team Logo Patch list.

The second rule of 2012 Panini Prominence rookies is that card quantities for each player remains the same for each variation. So all five Luck cards are numbered to 80.But not all players are the same. Robert Griffin III has the lowest print run. Just 70 of each rookie card exists. The highest print run is 245.

The final thing all five rookie variations have in common is that they're autographed.

Because of the common numbering, which falls in line with the base set, all five versions can be treated as official rookie cards.

It is worth noting that not all rookie cards in 2012 Panini Prominence have five variations. There are also 65 Rookie Signatures cards that are more traditional basic autographs. These 65 players only have the one version.

Here's a visual guide to each of the five 2012 Panini Prominence Football rookie card variations as presented by Andrew Luck. We have also included a checklist of all 35 players who have variations.
