2011 Plates & Patches Football Box Break & Review

Design: Photobucket

Once again the design is much like last year’s Plates & Patches.  On the plus side, Panini did do better with the autographed rookie patch cards.  These on-card autographs look good, but I think the area for the player to sign should have been much larger.  In most cases, these cards are the main “hits” of the box and having them encased in a thick holder like they were last year would have been a good idea.

Price: Photobucket

Boxes are currently selling for $150.00.

“Hit” Quality: Photobucket

You are guaranteed (5) “hits” per box – (1) on-card autographed prime memorabilia rookie, (2) additional autographs, and (2) additional memorabilia cards.  I pulled the following:


  • Blaine Gabbert on-card autographed prime 1-color patch rookie #’ed/299
  • Ryan Whalen Rookie Auto #’ed/405
  • Johnny White Rookie Auto Redemption #’ed/49
  • Darren McFadden Jersey #’ed/299
  • A.J. Green Rookie Blitz Jersey #’ed/299
  • LaQuan Williams Silver Rookie #’ed/100
  • Alex Smith Gold #’ed/50
NFL Blitz
  • Mark Ingram #’ed/249
  • Dez Bryant #’ed/499
  • Chad Henne #’ed/499
Overall: Photobucket
Overall, I give 2011 Plates & Patches 3 footballs out of 5 (1=poor & 5=perfect).  Like I said before, the design is almost the same as last year’s set.  The rookie autographed patches look slightly better though.

  1. Not a ba break especially if Gabbert can live up to expectations
