The late-stage insertion of informational fliers inside inner cases of Panini America’s 2014 Certified Football last week has created some confusion among collectors regarding what Freshman Fabric autograph memorabilia cards ultimately made packout. Freshman Fabric autographs for the most popular rookies from the 2014 NFL draft class (including Johnny Manziel, Teddy Bridgewater, Jadeveon Clowney, Mike Evans, Kelvin Benjamin and more) were included live in the product; but Panini America officials inserted Panini Rewards points for 13 players whose autographs weren’t returned in time.
After the jump, we provide a complete breakdown of the 27 players whose Freshman Fabric cards were included live in the product and the 13 players for which Rewards Points were inserted.
Here’s the list of players whose Freshman Fabric cards packed out:
Aaron Murray, AJ McCarron, Allen Robinson, Asa Watson, Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Bishop Sankey, Blake Bortles, Cody Latimer, Connor Shaw, De’Anthony Thomas, Derek Carr, Donte Monfrief, Jadeveon Clowney, Jarvis Landry, Jimmy Garoppolo, Johnny Manziel, Jordan Matthews, Ka’Deem Carey, Kelvin Benjamin, Khalil Mack, Logan Thomas, Marqise Lee, Mike Evans, Sammy Watkins, Teddy Bridgewater, Terrance West, Tom Savage.
Here’s the list of players whose Freshman Fabric cards were replaced with Panini Rewards points and will be placed into Panini Rewards inventory when they’re available:
Andre Williams, Brandin Cooks, Carlos Hyde, Charles Sims, Davante Adams, Davonta Freeman, Dri Archer, Eric Ebron, Jeremy Hill, Odell Beckham Jr., Paul Richardson, Tajh Boyd, Tre Mason.
