    Strange Printing Plate Question

    Has anyone ever seen this? Its a Panini Hot Rookies, but not the ones found in the packs its the fall expo card.

    Now the weird thing.....its not a plate, its cardboard with a blank back no 1/1 info nothing.

    Has anyone seen this before or have any info on these?

    I have a Lemieux like this. Pretty sure there were 5 of each color or something like that.

    I never liked this type of card. They are making "color proof" cards and likely not using the actual color proofs. Some other company does/did this besides Panini. I've seen it in a football product. This type manufactured proof as well as what seem to be manufactured printing plates.

    Thats the word I was looking for last night, PROOF its a proof card.... its just strange to me not a fan of it either, when I bought it I was expecting a metal plate. I normally don't collect plates unless I'm building a "rainbow" for example base, exclusive, midnight, high gloss, plate.

    Thanks for the answers guys, there was a little bit of thinking it could be a fake, but really didn't understand why someone would try and fake something like this lol.

    The "proofs" are usually put out in redemption packs at shows. 5 seems to be the accepted number for print runs, but I have never seen a source for that. I always question small print runs like that when the companies never come out and announce that anywhere. I still can't understand why companies would produce something with such a small print run and not number them. Makes me suspect that they aren't really that small. But I am just a pessimist.
