    Awesome I am loving the new design, last year the blue Certified bubble reminded me of Ford every time, lol. Awesome hits and some nice ‘Skins cards! I want the Riggo!

    Certifiably impressed. First things first. Base cards for me is where a product begins and as always Certified did a great job. Glad you went back to the roots of Mirrors. Always a huge fan of those. Great looking and most chased after rookie cards. Once again another bumped up effort on the part of the Panini team for their NFL products.

    Was this only two shoots to get this Certified and ready?

    Awesome cards guys. Love these colored parallels. The backing on the rookie cards is something else!! Great job, love it. Gonna check out the checklist to see what the fabric of the game set includes. Hoping for a sweet old timer patch.

    I’ve always liked Certified. Is it just me or do some of them seem to have their heads/shoulders enlarged in the picture? That Okoye looks like a hockey goalie(in a good way), and that Desean card!!!

    Mirror colors always go over well.

    Is there a Randall Cunningham Eagles card?

    The outtake-it happens to the best of us Tracy!!

    GREAT pull on that Andrew Luck, that would fit nicely in my Colts collection! Thanks Tracy and Carlos!

    Awesome looking cards guys, only issue is it looks like it is becoming more of a rookie based product. NO NFL die cut primes this year??????? thats just a shame because they are the most popular patch only set there is.

    I pulled my best rookie card out of certified. can’t say if I like the look or not. I’ll have to open a couple free boxes first or carefully examine that prime patch of Andrew Luck.

    Is it just me of have the number of insert sets featuring Broncos QBs increased greatly since a certain someone joined the Panini team?

      Hmmm . . . good question. I’d like to think that Carlos’ tastes have improved. 🙂

    Nice looking cards. Can’t wait to go out and get some tomorrow!

    Like the look of the design BUT leaving out the FOTG NFL DIe Cut Prime is SHOCKING. Its like cake without the icing! RIP best patch set around.

    Very Nice Product!!! But sticker autos are somewhat of a let down for this price point!!
    Quality is over the top!!

    At first, I was sceptical when Carlos mentioned mentioned a change on the Mirror paralles but it turned out really nice. In past years, it looked like the top layer of the card could be peeled off. The new look makes the card look like it is on a thick stock like the old 1999 Prestige. The rainbow is deep within the card and not a foil layer. Certifed is one of my favorite products.

    Very impressive looking release they catch the light so well!

    Nice blooper and I like the drop of “Carlos” at the end of a lot of the videos… fun stuff.

  26. October 17, 2012 10:25 pm

    Another great unwrapped video! Can’t wait to bust more certified this year! Already did a box and pulled an emerald auto! Great stuff again!
