The Drool Gallery: 2010 Donruss Football Rated Rookie Boxed Set

December 29, 2010

If you can keep this between us, I’ll let you in on a little secret: I got an advance look yesterday at one of the coolest little football products to come along in a long, long time.

It’s the self-contained, brilliantly-boxed coup known as the 2010 Donruss Football Rated Rookie Boxed Set — and it’s even sweeter than it appeared when we first announced its existence in November.

It’s sure to be one of the most popular NFL trading card products of the season because it has a can’t-miss arsenal rivaling Tim Tebow‘s that includes 100 Rookie Cards, one autographed Rookie Card and an irresistible price point ($19.99).

Luckily for us, I’m in good with Stephanie Carlson, Panini America‘s VP of Production. Carlson was on her way to drop some sets off to customer service yesterday when she asked if I’d like to scan a few of the cards. I said “Yes.” Actually, I screamed “YES!” I figured you’d like to see them in advance of the product going live next week.

Enjoy . . .
