Panini Peek Preview Gallery: 2011 Playoff Contenders Football (10 Must-See Images)

October 14, 2011

We let the cat out of the bag to a certain extent last week by unveiling the Rookie Ticket Rookie Card designs for the upcoming release of collecting flagship 2011 Playoff Contenders Football. But knowing what the RCs look like is just one part of the equation. Clearly, there’s a whole lot more to know — and love — about this linchpin product.

Like, for example,  the fact that each box of 2011 Playoff Contenders will include two on-card rookie autographs (either a Rookie Ticket RC or a Rookie Ink insert), two additional autographs and 15 inserts from a roster that includes Super Bowl TicketsLegendary ContendersRookie Roll Call and Rookie of the Year Contenders.

But perhaps the most intriguing aspect of this year’s release is just how Panini America will follow the frenzy-inducing fervor created by last year’s pioneering 14-karat gold Golden Tickets. The answer? With 52 Black Golden Ticket 1/1s that are sure to raise the precious-metal bar. Stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for additional details on these beauties.

Other highlights from the product that releases in early January include:

  • Front Row Tickets 1/1s, a 236-card parallel set featuring on-card autographs from the 36 rookies who attended the 2011 NFL PLAYERS Rookie Premiere
  • Printing Plate 1/1s featuring on-card autographs from the 36 rookies who attended the 2011 NFL Players Rookie Premiere
  • Signs of Greatness Autographs from some of the most promising young players in the NFL
  • NFL Ink Quad Signatures featuring such prominent pairings as Aaron Rodgers/Greg Jennings/Charles Woodson/Clay Mathews, Tony Romo/Felix Jones/Miles Austin/Dez Bryant, Mark Sanchez/Santonio Holmes/Shonn Greene/LaDainian Tomlinson and Ben Roethlisberger/Rashard Mendenhall/Hines Ward/ Mike Wallace.
You can get your first extended look at the product in the gallery below. Trust us, there will be much more to come.

    Looks good, and with 4 autographs per box I am excited at some of the potential pulls. A quad auto of the Packers or Cowboys? Awesome.
