Preview: 2011 Panini Plates & Patches Football

Panini is back with a reformatted 2011 Panini Plates & Patches football to improve on the solid product from last season. I enjoyed last seasons product and watching all the pretty nice group breaks and box breaks of the product.

The first improvement is the new on-card signed rookie patch cards that will be in the product this year. The top 36 rookies, probably who attended the NFL Rookie Premiere, will all have on-card autographs. This includes Cam Newton, Mark Ingram, Julio Jones and Randall Cobb. All of these rookie autographs will be numbered to 499 or less.

Also new and improved this year is the insert set called Signal Callers which will feature some of the best quarterbacks in NFL history, with a nice list of autographs for that set.

Each box of 2011 Panini Plates & Patches football will have 10 cards in it. You will get one on-card rookie autographed patch card, two more autographs numbered to 499 or less, and two memorabilia cards numbered to 299 or less. It will be rounded out with some inserts and base cards as well. There will be some great 1 of 1 printing plates found in this set including autographed printing plates, some with prime memorabilia and some without.

This product is set to release on December 14, so look out for this improved product!
