  1. (insert your own adjective of shock & awe) You know…prior to Panini ramping up the game, stratospherically priced products such as Exquisite and National Treasures set the bar for patch rookie-autos. After reviewing the above, I say no more! Fellow collectors, rise up, shake a dollar-filled fist at $400 & $500 single pack boxes, and scream “No more!” Or, you can just say it. Whichever you choose, collectors no longer need to choose between purchasing a box and paying the mortgage. Those issues stand toe-to-toe and best anything the aforementioned products have to offer. These designs are fresh, the patches and autos are huge, the ‘graphs appear to be neat and seem to be largely on-card. Wow, this is precisely the thing that gets collectors like me jacked! Nicely done Panini…

  2. Wow what an awesome gallery. Way to make my Sunday!! Some incredible stuff here. the nfl shield and reebok patch printing plate of Torrey Smith are amazing! Some sweet Mallet patches used as well. Way to go Panini and thanks for sharing Tracy.

  3. I see alot of awesome looking cards. Wish I could get some. Bought my 1 box of Certified, and got nothing good. Not even a Mirror Blue.

  4. Although I love the products, I continue to be disappointed by the number of redemption cards and namely, the customer service of redeeming those cards. I had one card I waited at least 18 months to receive and many that went on what seemed like forever. I have one now from last year’s Contender product!

    I honestly don’t know what the “answer” is but something needs to be done!

    1. The trade-off is quality and quantity. I’d MUCH rather receive a redemption for a highly sought-after rook’ or star player than a card in-hand from a 6th round Practice-squadder or bench-meat lineman.

      1. Even if you have to wait two years? There has to be some sort of decent trade-off somewhere that works for all involved. Another point, I don’t mind a few redemptions here and there but I’ve heard from folks that opened a bunch of Certified Football and got a redemption in every box! Now, that’s too much!

      2. The difference in Redemption cards between this year and last has been huge, at least in terms of the NBA cases I have bought. 09-10 was loaded but 10-11 gave me hardly any which was great so they are making headway.

  5. wow just wow like the look of the gold standard rpa’s for sure and the plates and patches stuff looks sick also cant wait to get in group breaks of both products for sure.

  6. 2 years is unacceptable, of course. I don’t believe that the company would pleased to hear that you have unfullfilled redemptions that are 2 years out of date.
    I wish I had another answer for you bro, but the truth is that these players have to be sat upon before they fill the auto-sheets they’re
    contracted to sign. It’s infuriating, but if these companies are going to roll-out product even remotely on-schedule…and often release delays stem from unfulfilled autos, then collectors need to live with the dreaded redemption. I’m really surprised that you have cards that are so far out if date. It’s been my experience that, once I contact customer service to jog memories and jump-start the equally dreaded, “substitution process,” the Reps’

  7. Rhys…the reason you pulled virtually no NBA redemption cards this season is because the players had virtually nothing to do BUT sign their allotted cards 8) Let’s put our hands together for Christmas Day NBA.

    1. Not really… 10-11 certified came out a month within the season ending from memory. But yes will be hoping ESPN Australia gets on board with showing us these games on boxing day!

    1. Thats what I am hoping too, I have a Crown Royale Patch/Auto I am waiting on of him, hope he gets them signed and turned in soon!
