The playoffs start in two days so what better time to check out another one of Panini’s 2011 Football releases?
Certified has been around a while and is a tried and true 4 hit per box product.
The base design is really nice.
I love the background; it makes the player look like he is coming off the card. The foil and hologramy effect make for a spectacular look in person. One of the better looking base cards of the year. I really like that they kept the photo backgrounds in the design, it adds nice depth.
The more traditional border of this design is a nice change from the base cards. It really helps the card stand out. Panini does that in a lot of product. Gives an insert or two a traditional design, a nice juxtapose to the ore modern design of much of their cards.
I got two Shirt of my Back relics.
I have been pulling a lot of this dudes relics this year. I hope he and his boys do all right in the Playoffs.
This is the biggest name rookie of the box. Too bad an injury will keep him out of playoff action.
It was a fun break with some solid looking cards.
This years amazing rookie class make just about any 2011 product worth a look.
