At last, Panini has released the short print list. No word if Ryan Seacrest was on hand for the reveal.

From our perspective and as we predicted, the real winners here are Legarrette Blount owners. With just 287 Rookie Tickets he’s one of the shorter prints AND unlike most of the other players, Blount has very few autos and very few rookie cards in general. Also very surprised to see that Rams Tight End Michael Hoomanawanui isn’t a short print.

One of the most asked questions these days among passionate football folks has nothing at all to do with the NFL’s expiring CBA, Cam Newton’s 40 time or whether or not the Green Bay Packers have what it takes to repeat. No, the most prolific query making the rounds is something much more collecting focused.

“When will Panini America release short-print quantities for 2010 Playoff Contenders Football?” I’m glad you asked.

On Monday, we began slowly revealing answers with the list of SPs from the product’s Legendary Contenders Black Autographs insert. We followed that up Wednesday with the skinny on short prints found within Contenders’ captivating Super Bowl Tickets Black Autographs.

But we’ve saved the most anticipated revealation for today, for right now. Finally, after three weeks of wild speculation and even wilder eBay bidding trends, we present to you, for the first time anywhere, print run numbers for the highly coveted Rookie Ticket Autographed Rookie Cards.

Clearly, you’ve waited long enough. What follows is the complete list of Rookie Ticket SPs with quantities of 500 or less. This list, it should noted, was tucked away in the Panini America vault alongside the product’s pioneering Golden Tickets.
