Today on Panini’s official blog, they revealed the details of 2011 Panini Limited football and it looks to be an improvement over last year’s product and that deserves some praise from just about anyone.
Although the photos used are still from the Rookie Premiere as this product was already in the starting stages by the time training camp started, they do a pretty good job with these photos even if you can tell that they’ve been used before. But the design in general is definitely an improvement in my opinion.
Some new additions this season include pieces of hats worn by 13 players at the NFL Draft numbered to 199 or less and a new “Limitless” insert numbered to 199 or less that features some autographs from some very hard to get players like Michael Vick, Sam Bradford, and Adrian Peterson. I must say, I approve of that subset name as well as I know I’ve made some slight jabs at Panini for subset names in the past.
Every card produced for the entire set is numbered to 499 or less which brings some good value to the table in terms of how scarce these cards are. The newly designed Rookie Phenoms are numbered to 299 and feature some sweet patches. So things are definitely looking good so far for this set.
Every 7 card pack/box of 2011 Panini Limited football will feature 1 autograph numbered to 299 or less, 1 memorabilia card numbered to 199 or less, 1 additional autograph or memorabilia card numbered to 199 or less, 2 base cards, 1 legend card, and 1 rookie card numbered to 499 or less. Overall, it looks to be similar to past years in terms of odds, but that’s just fine.
Look for this product to hit stores in November at around the same price as last year.
