Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard had one of the more-impressive seasons for a rookie this year and he’s got at least one “variation” in 2016 Panini Contenders that’s even more interesting than his showing on the field.
At least one collector has found one of these cards — and it’s unknown whether others even exist — but this on-card auto above appears to have been by someone else.
It appears that New York Giants rookie RB Paul Perkins penned the autograph on the Howard card seen above.
The top card was found by a collector on the Blowout forum. You can see what other Howard autographs found in Panini packs look like in the gallery below.
There have been certified autographs with the wrong ink from a few companies in the past — thanks to stickers — but incorrect on-card autos are pretty rare but apparently possible.
