Before the Signatures: The Gold Rookie Card Parallels from 2011 Gold Standard Football

September 29, 2011

You’ll have to excuse Joe White if he seems especially over-stressed and under-rested these days. It’s White, you see, who’s responsible for coordinating and executing every one of the seemingly countless signings required to ensure Panini America’s 2011 NFL Rookie Card lineup remains as on-card intensive as possible.

And right about now, White’s in overdrive, absolutely engulfed by the whirlwind of dates and times and shipping information and deadlines required to successfully facilitate sit-down signing sessions for the top RCs in 2011 Absolute Memorabilia, Crown Royale, Certified, Gold Standard, Limited, Plates & Patches and, soon, Playoff Contenders and National Treasures.

I say all of that to say this: White just this week received and started shipping out the hot-off-the-presses — and darn good-looking — RCs and accompanying parallels for 2011 Gold Standard Football. So I took advantage of White’s back being turned to scan a few of the cards for the gallery that follows.

Not long after these images were captured, they were carefully boxed up and shipped expeditiously to one of the several NFL destinations around the country. The next time you see these beauties, they’ll be autographed — and they’ll be spectacular.

    So if they already look great without autos, am I really going to pass out onto the floor when they are signed. Great job with these! I want these even unsigned. Great patch pieces used in these. It helps bring out the top notch design!

    SICK!!!!!!!!!!!!! I bet since the bottom of the card is black the autos will be signed in silver or gold ink!!!! Either way the cards are going to be beautiful as always because Panini is the BEST card company hands down!!!!! I cant wait to see some more Aaron Rodgers autos!

    Thank God cards are getting signed in ink colors other than blue… I’ve been saying that for months now.
