2011 Donruss Elite Football Box Break & Review

Design: Photobucket

I like the horizontal rookie cards.  It shakes things up from the usual vertical ones.  The best thing about Elite for me has always been the die-cut cards.  The base set looks a little dull.

Price: Photobucket

Hobby boxes are currently selling for around $96.00.

“Hit” Quality : Photobucket

Collectors can find (4) “hits” on average per box.  I pulled the following:


  • Quinton Carter Rookie Turn of the Century Auto #’ed/499
  • Von Miller Rookie Turn of the Century Auto #’ed/299
  • Donald Driver Down & Distance Jersey #’ed/299
  • Johnny Knox Down & Distance Jersey #’ed/299


  • Jabaal Sheard RC #’ed/999
  • Aldon Smith RC #’ed/999
  • A.J. Green RC #’ed/999
  • Akeen Ayers RC #’ed/999
  • Bilal Powell RC #’ed/999
  • Ryan Williams RC #’ed/999
  • Edmund Gates RC #’ed/999
Other Serial Numbered Cards
  • LaDainian Tomlinson Status Die-Cut #’ed/21
  • Curtis Loften Hit List #’ed/999
  • LaDainian Tomlinson Legends of the Fall #’ed/999
  • Jeremy Maclin Craftsmen #’ed/999
  • Chad Henne Power Formulas #’ed/999
Not quite $96.00 worth, but I got what is guaranteed on the box.  Plain jerseys are something of the past.
Overall: Photobucket
Overall, I give 2011 Donruss Elite 3 footballs out of 5 (1=poor & 5=perfect).  My box was pretty standard.  No big “hits”.  The die-cuts are the coolest aspect about this product.
