The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: 2012 Totally Certified Football (99 Images)

March 11, 2013

Panini America 2012 Totally Certified Football QC (44)

The magnificence of the micro-etching. The resplendent rainbow of collectible parallels. The golden glow of scarce autographs and sick-prime memorabilia cards. One of the most coveted rookie classes of all time. Indeed, all the pieces seem to be in place for a spectacular launch next week of 2012 Totally Certified Football.

Panini America’s newest NFL creation, which began shipping late last week, will kick off an absolutely blazing trifecta of 2012-ending releases (both 2012 Playbook Football and 2012 National Treasures Football will follow in Totally Certified’s scorching footsteps). But it’s up to 2012 Totally Certified Football to set the table.

Panini America’s Aik Tongtharadol and Joseph Mackey spent the better part of last Thursday and Friday quality-controlling the product, which includes the always-colorful, always-collectible Blue, Green and Gold parallels, a new lineup of HRX Video Trading Cards, and a stacked lineup of rookie autographs (Minnesota Vikings kicker Blair Walsh is instantly in the running for the year’s best-looking autograph).

The following gallery will shed light on Walsh’s penmanship, not to mention the seemingly countless other attributes that make the 2012 Totally Certified Football release so totally stunning.

    I am a big fan of the colored base variations. Any chance we get a Blair Walsh in this set?

    No offence, but it looks like the RPAs didn’t leave enough room for the sticker and…they’re sticker, compared to last years on card. 😦

    This set shows how a top notch base set can outshine even relics and autos. I am a big fan of this set. I have been excited about it since we got to see the design on the Cousins rookie of the week card.

    Totally Certified Basketball has been my favorite release so far this year so I was looking forward to seeing these and they do not disappoint! I like these just as much if not more than the Basketball (and I’m mainly a Basketball guy), awesome stuff.

    Looks like a solid follow-up release to last year’s product, any significant legendary memorabilia to note Tracy? I remember quite the buzz regarding the Jim Thorpe cards from last year. Thanks!

    Totally Certified looks Totally Outstanding! I’m so excited for these last 3 NFL releases! Playbook looks Amazing this year and National Treasures looks like it will be the best NT EVER! It’s bittersweet though because this has been such a great Rookie class and it’s kind of sad that it’s almost over. You guys at Panini did a great job this year with all of your NFL products! Even though 2012 Football is almost over I’m just happy that we still have a lot more NBA products left and more chances to add to my Kyrie Irving collection! Keep up the great work Tracy and everybody else at Panini!!

    Love the way the colors pop on these cards. Certified and Totally Cerified are two of my favorite Panini releases,along with Crown. Great job!

    I was disappointed I wasn’t able to come on here yesterday to view these. But I made it a mission to today. I absolutely Totally love this product! Micro etched cards look great and are some of the most unique and collectible cards out in the market. This is a product you try to put a set together of.

    How about putting some of these sticker autos on the Crown Royale silhouettes so I can get my set in hand. I will admit though that these cards are pretty nice looking. I may have to do a box or 14 now
