2012 Limited Football Box Break & Review

Design: Photobucket

The majority of Limited Football looks quite similar to what you would normally find within past releases.  The best looking cards are the rookie and veteran jumbo jerseys/patches.  They came out great.  One of the toughest things to do when you have a jumbo relic is creating a well designed card.  Many times the jumbo relic will take over the entire card, not leaving much room for a picture of the player.  Panini made the right choice by using zoomed-in player photos.

I have no clue why Panini placed that white strip over some of the jumbo relics.  Its just asking to be ripped off by accident.

Price: Photobucket

Boxes are currently selling for $100.00.

“Hit” Quality: Photobucket

Inside each box you’ll find one silver pack (kinda looks like a Pop-Tart) that contains (3) “hits”.  There should be at least (1) autograph.

I pulled the following:

Auto/Relic

  • Brandon Weeden Phenom 2-color Patch Auto #’ed/199

Relics

  • Ryan Fitzpatrick Limited Threads Jersey #’ed/49
  • Chris Johnson Limited Threads Jersey #’ed/99

Parallel

  • Shea McClellin Spotlight Phenom #’ed/49

Base

  • Steve Smith #’ed/399
  • Drew Brees #’ed/399
  • Doug Flutie Legend #’ed/349

Overall: Photobucket

Overall, I give 2012 Limited Football an average 3 helmets out of 5 (1=poor & 5=perfect).  The rookie and veteran jumbo jerseys/patches are really the nicest looking part.  I don’t have a problem with the Phenom autographed patches either.  The Weeden I pulled is signed on-card, and wasn’t a redemption.
