Anyway, Panini sent me a box of 2010 Contenders Football to review. The draw with this product is the 4 autos per box, no jerseys. These run $135 a box, but I would expect a bit of a drop after the initial rush. However, The Panini Gold cards out of this product are the hottest thing going so the drop may not materialize.
Here is the base. I do like these. Most of the time I don't like the player cut out look of base cards, but the ticket design element gives these a nice look. The ticket has the position, number, number of years the player has been a pro, Team, year team established and division as well as the name of the stadium the team plays in. Nice scrisp design with good collation and good quality control.
The inserts are classic Panini and although there are some places where an autograph can go, there are design elements that make sure the card doesn't look naked.
The two below are on card autos and in person they really pop. I actually criticized Panini for not having a dedicated signing area. Fear not, these look great in person.
