Preview: 2011 Panini National Treasures Football

The high end pariah in football that everyone saves up their hard earned coin for will be back again this season when it hits stores on March 21, 2012.

First up on the “wow” list this year is the ultimate trading card. The longest trading card ever created will be inserted (I’m sure as a redemption) in one of these boxes. This card will be 12-feet long and include an autographed jumbo jersey of everyone who attended the 2011 NFL Rookie Premiere. That is freakin’ nuts.

Next on the wow factor is Jim Thorpe worn baseball jersey card along with a cut auto, and a Knute Rockne game worn jacket and cut autographs. There is some serious history there. Adding onto that history element is a card with an actual piece of the goal post from the 1958 NFL championship game. More freakin’ nuts.

Other than that, you will have your usual wow cards in this product. Dual, triple, and quad autographs from the top rookies will return. Some game used laundry tags from veteran players jerseys along with an autograph will return as a big hit to collectors as well as NFL shield autographs. Oh, and you may even find a game used letter, shield, and laundry tag from some Pro Bowl player’s jerseys.

And again, you’ll find the standard other National Treasures cards like Souvenir Cuts, Ring of Honor Signatures, and everything else you come to expect from this great high end product.

While the price is usually high, around $400, the hits are phenomenal.
