February 2012 sports card releases…let’s get ‘em going! As always, the rating at the end is my excitement level.
2012 Topps Series I Baseball – February 1, 2012 – $65/$121 – 9/10
Topps Series I means a couple things. It’s just about baseball season. People are going to go crazy for these next few weeks trying to put their sets together. And Brentandbecca is going to open a million cases of this product.
2011-12 Panini Preferred Basketball – February 27, 2012 – $200 – 8/10
The first NBA product of the season…finally. It starts out with a bang with this high end product full of autographs for the high end autograph collector. Some sweet designs from a mix of Panini products, it looks like it will be a good time for NBA collectors.
2011 Panini Prime Signatures Football – February 17, 2012 – $60 – 9/10
Panini does lower end products well. This is kinda one of them. The design is beautiful so let’s hope the checklist is just as nice as the design.
2011 Panini Totally Certified Football – February 16, 2012 – $120 – 9/10
Loved this product on the basketball side so I can’t wait to see what is in store on the football side. The ever popular autographed Panini HRX autographed video trading card should command a great price and maybe the low numbered parallels may do just as well as basketball.
2011 Panini Contenders Football – February 15, 2012 – $135 – 7/10
One of the top NFL rookie autograph cards makes it’s yearly debut and rookie collectors everywhere are ready for this offering from Panini.
2011 Topps Five-Star Football – February 22, 2012 – $475 – 10/10
The product of the year is back for it’s second season. Can it live up to it’s first year? It better and it will.
2011 Upper Deck SP Authentic Football – February 7, 2012 – $112 – 8/10
It looks like another great NCAA licensed product in their SP Authentic brand from Upper Deck bringing back the retro look with today’s rookies and veterans. The rookie patch autographs are always something to behold with larger patch windows this year.
2011-12 ITG Heroes & Prospects Hockey – February 23, 2012 – $78 – *
No preview yet.
2011-12 Panini Crown Royale Hockey – February 8, 2012 – $100 – 9/10
My personal hockey product of the year last year returns once again including all the greatness that made last year’s product fly off the shelves and hard to find.
2011-12 Panini Elite Hockey – February 29, 2012 – $120 – 7/10
Elite hockey makes it’s debut with autographs a great parallels that it features as well in other sports. The debut of some interesting autographed cards including Social Signatures makes this a fun product to watch.
2011-12 Upper Deck Series II Hockey – February 28, 2012 – $68 – *
No preview yet.
2011 Upper Deck World of Sports – February 21, 2012 – $75 – 6/10
Keeps getting pushed back…so it is what it is. Terrible last year, looks improved. For the niche collector.
There are definitely a lot of great products to look forward to this February, which one do you want to bust open the most?
