  1. O M G! Like… For real? Im TOTALLY going to have to buy like a few of these boxes! Like Im “TOTALLY CERTIFIABLY “stoked about these!…And Im like TOTALLY ready for them to be released! Lol Sorry Tracy…TOTALLY couldn’t help myself!;-) lol

  2. Glad to see this program return this year, I enjoyed the product last year including some of the obscure legendary hits that seemed to pop very well on the secondary market. I managed to land some of the rare base parallels I was looking for last year and will pick it up again this year for sure. Thanks as always Tracy!

    1. Speaking of Jim Kelly, as a USFL fan (the Philadelphia Stars were my team), I am wondering if any of the card companies can make inserts of players like Jim, Herschel Walker, Steve Young, Kelvin Bryant, Reggie White, etc with their USFL Photos and/or jersey pieces. That would be cool. I know not too many people remember the USFL, but for those that do a retro-themed USFL inset set would be very cool indeed! We are coming up on the 30th anniversary of the start of the USFL as well.

  3. This year’s Totally Certified looks GREAT! With Luck and RG3 heading the class, this year’s Totally Certified will be even better than last year. Can’t wait to see the HRX Video Cards first hand. Last year one of my customers pulled a Cam Newton HRX. This year I’m thinking RG3 HRX!

  4. Great job Panini! This is now my second favorite product next to Panini Black Football. I think the card designs are perfect- not completely covered in sparkles, but not bland or anywhere close to boring. Keep up the Awesome work Panini!

  5. As you know about my love for this know I am TOTALLY stoked you guys are bringing this back! Last years product was amazing.

  6. Hnnngr HRX cards a chance to hit one of those babies makes busting Certified worth the RRP. The rookie cards have a nice design to them and its good to see them carrying on with roughly the same design.
