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.
Boxes are currently selling for $100.00.
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:
- Brandon Weeden Phenom 2-color Patch Auto #’ed/199
- Ryan Fitzpatrick Limited Threads Jersey #’ed/49
- Chris Johnson Limited Threads Jersey #’ed/99
- Shea McClellin Spotlight Phenom #’ed/49
- Steve Smith #’ed/399
- Drew Brees #’ed/399
- Doug Flutie Legend #’ed/349
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.
