Previewing the Sickness to Come in 2011 Absolute Memorabilia, Certified Football

September 12, 2011

A funny thing happened on my way to documenting the packout process for 2011 Timeless Treasures Football at the Panini America printing facility earlier today: I got ambushed by the memorabilia-card brilliance of 2011 Absolute Memorabilia Football and 2011 Certified Football.

Not to worry. I plan on posting plenty of images tomorrow highlighting the quality time I spent with Timeless Treasures. But today, this space is reserved for a selection of spectacular — and, in some cases, filthy — Tools of the Trade and War Room cards that are sure to drop as many jaws now as they will when they’re pulled from packs when Absolute hits at the end of the month.

A bit of a warning: These images may cause some viewers to become light-headed. We recommend you take a seat before viewing. (In light of yesterday’s otherworldly performance from Cam Newton, you may find the Newton cards in the following gallery particularly dizzying.)
