2022 Panini Limited Football was one of four major sports card releases arriving at hobby shops Wednesday morning. We brought in a 14-box case and decided to dive into one of the boxes for the shop–and for your entertainment.
The boxes consist of five cards per pack and three packs per box. Collectors will also find two autographs and one memorabilia card per box.
Limited is a very nice, mid-tier product that offers some really cool autographed rookie cards each and every season and we werelooking forward to finding at least one in this box, right?
The first hit in our first pack was an Unlimited Potential rookie jersey card of New York Jets offensive Rookie of the Year, wide receiver Garrett Wilson numbered to 99 copies. We also got a numbered parallel of Baltimore Ravens veteran tight end Mark Andrews, numbered 40 of 125.
We stuck with Baltimore Ravens tight ends as the autograph in our second pack was that of rookie Charlie Kolar. It is numbered out of 99.
Although it is a sticker auto, the card is aesthetically pleasing. The picture here probably doesn’t do it justice. It’s a nice design with foil etching that stands out. It’s not worth much of anything at the moment, but it’s pretty.
We also picked up a Tom Brady base card–one of the last ones issued of the future Hall of Famer as an active player (Limited is a ’22 product).
The third and final pack of the box held our eagerly awaited RPA. It’s a beautiful rookie patch auto of Kansas City Chiefs rookie running back Skyy Moore. The horizontally designed foil card features a sticker auto, a bold two color patch and its numbered out of 75.
As a big bonus, we got the serial number of 24, which is Moore’s jersey number. I’m a huge fan of the serial number jersey number cards. Although they’re not one of ones, they are the only ones, so there’s that. Although only starting three games is rookie season, he did play in all 16 regular season contests compiling 250 receiving yards and a light 24 yards rushing. Moore did play a key role in the Chiefs Super Bowl run, including a big punt return in the AFC Championship game and recorded his first career touchdown in the Super Bowl victory.
I hate to sound like a broken record here but with a price tag of right around $300, this was not a financially profitable box. The cards are very nice and look/appear higher end, so there’s no issue with the design or quality of the cards, just that current pricing makes it awfully tough to pull what’s considered current market value in so many products. If you get lucky and land a low serial numbered card of a popular rookie, you’ll do fine, but it’s up to you to decide whether the gamble is worth it.
I hope you enjoyed our latest beat down. Check back in for more (hopefully not Moore) soon.
