    The horizontal setout is a nice touch. Laundry tag in a /99 card is different too.

    How cool is it to pull a Knute Rockne memorabilia piece? Rookies are great but keep these vintage items coming!

  10. August 24, 2011 10:13 am

    The only thing hotter than these cards is Hackler’s shirt.

    Once again an amazing product. The base card design is very nice. The horizontal look gives collectors a chance to see more of the action. Not to mention i love the color design on the side to match the players team. As a set collector and a lover of great on card photography, this is much appreciated. The Gridiron kings and Star factor look great as well. The Von miller/Dareus dual jersey is very nice. the Tyron Smith auto was pretty sweet. The letter autos are always an awesome hit even though i never seem to get one no matter how hard i try. Nice laundry tag as well. This product, from the packaging of Ingram to the base to the inserts and to the top notch hits you can get from this product like you guys pulled from this hot box. overall i give this product an a++++!! Owning or winning a single base card from this break would be awesome. And very sweet Panini America T! Love the design. Thanks again for the contest. Keep up the great products.

    Awesome laundry tag. Love to have a shirt

  15. August 24, 2011 10:42 am

    Looks like more awesome stuff! Love that shirt – hoping I win it so I can blind the neighbors.

  16. August 24, 2011 10:45 am

    Congrats on opening a pretty good box with all of those inserts. I really like the horizontal pictures on these cards.

  17. Kevin C permalink
    August 24, 2011 10:45 am

    That was an insightful break. I didn’t know about action photos on the cards all being landscape, that is a nice touch. I like that Prime Memorabilia cards are one per box as well, I’ll be sure to pick up a box or two.

    awesome design guys!. Love the action shots of the base cards. I absolutely love the horizontal layout of these cards,because they allow you guys to express the beauty of your photography and design work. Of course the hits are very nice also. Love the look of that Jake Locker Jersey patch, that Von Miller auto was very nice also. If you guys continue to make quality products like this, my hard earned money will continue to spend.

      I don’t know what I was thinking, but I meant to say the Mikel Leshoure letter auto was nice. The guy is going to bounce back next year from his injury and be a stud. The Von Miller/Marcell Dareus duel jersey card is very nice also though.

    Great product this year. Love the way on how the base cards are horizontal. This will be fun for me to collect this year. And the prime patches seem to amuse me! I mean a laundry tag? What else can I expect? A shoe? lol. but back to business. This year’s threads looks way better than last year. The bases are more eye gazing and the inserts are beast. Triple threads sound fun! My grade? 9/10 đŸ˜€

    The horizontal design shows more of the field happenings where the diagonal seam border is a nice touch which does not take away from the action…..Star factor nice added touch not sure on the Gridiron Kings design sort of used to the old design which I liked quite a bit will have to wait and see once I have one in hand to really tell…….the Rockne card is awesome…I was hoping to pull an Ernie Davis card last season still trying…lol…the inclusion of past Stars is a huge plus for any collector and adds to the popularity of Panini Threads……

    These cards look absolutely amazing! I just started to get back into collecting a month ago after 14yrs of the GIRLS! GIRLS! GIRLS! stage of life. Now thats done and over i can start again. Looking at my 97′ collection and back makes these cards look like mine were made with a hand printing press. Especially the ones my pops gave me from the early 80s. Crazy what changes in a few years. High def has revolutionized this massive industry and the box you guys opened really makes me want to get get back into this full swing just to see whats out there. Dont rag on me to much but when u pulled that lions patch out was awesome. Gotta to rep my hometown boys!
    Cant wait to get started again.
    Lovin the cards guys! Keep up the good work.

    The old-time stuff is cool as someday there won’t be anymore of it around. gotta have that Rockne card.

  35. August 24, 2011 11:46 am

    Really like the design on these. Action Pics always look great on a card and these really pop out. And of course the letterman are always a great touch. Surprised to see that Laundry Tag Looked good though.

  36. August 24, 2011 11:51 am

    Nice Shirt, I hope to be wearing one soon đŸ™‚

    This looks like an awesome product, I really love the landscape style, makes it easier to see what else is going on on the field and possibly to find out what game the picture was taken from. That shirt looks very cool too. Also, I love the effects during your little sign-off thing lol.

    Love to see the extras. The cards look good and the inserts are sharp. Need to get one of those Packer inserts with Rodgers, Driver & Jennings.

    Is that card also a triple jersey card also?

    I just sold my computer to buy some packs when I saw the local card store had these in stock. I did not pull anything great, but did like the cards. I enjoy opening a product such as this that is clean and simple, but has a few layers(parallels, auto, #’ed) that are included. It is rare for products to contain numerous inserts that are attractive, good ratios to pull one, and are not forced on a customer (5 in a pack of 10 cards). It looks like Panini has released a real good product here and I just wish I could afford more (can’t sell everything I have). I hope to spread the word on the accomplishment of Threads and hope to add to my collection somehow and someway soon. A+ on this one Panini

  63. August 25, 2011 4:13 am

    Nice stuff, you pulled my boy Julius Thomas too! I’m still waiting for an autograph to hit one of these sets of Julius. If I have to, I’ll hit em up on Twitter!

    To tell you the truth I have never bought Threads in the past, but watching this break, I really like the design and am looking forward to the product. Love the horizontal design, and I like the fact you get one prime mem card per box. Nice going Panini!!

  66. August 25, 2011 2:00 pm

    Watching this break….nice looking cards! Definitely agree with the horizontal design showing some cool stuff!

    The story behind the star factor is pretty cool.

    The Hines Ward card shows the Buffalo game that had the epic overtime drop by Stevie Johnson.

    The Rookie Collection Card of Miller and Dareus is a nice card!

    Knute Rockne “You can find pieces of him in the program”….good thing I knew you were talking about the jacket and not actually him!

    Threads got me back in the hobby. I went to my LCS to pick up a Peyton Manning Rookie. It had been years since I bought packs, but a fresh box of 2010 Threads had just been opened. After a few packs I pulled a Bo Jackson Patch /5. Could not of been happier because I was an avid collector of Bo as a child. Ive been a full blown card addict every since. Thanks Panini…
