Default Panini Peek: 2012 Playbook Football

Panini Peek: 2012 Playbook Football

November 7, 2012 at 1:07 PM



By most accounts, 2011′s premiere edition of Playbook Football ranked as one of the most successful debut products in the hobby last year; certainly it kept popping up on best-seller lists in hobby shops across the country. But for the highly anticipated follow-up, Panini America is planning to pen an entirely new, completely engrossing chapter.

2012 Playbook Football releases in March and will be headlined by the fascinatingly re-engineered Rookie Booklet RCs, a shadow-box-type design featuring one jumbo prime-jersey piece, one jumbo jersey piece and an on-card autograph numbered to 149 or less (check out the preview below).


Every four-card box of 2012 Playbook Football will deliver one on-card-signed Rookie Booklet, one additional autograph and two additional memorabilia booklets; on average, three boxes in each 10-box case should yield three autographs (including one Rookie Booklet) and one memorabilia card.

Playbook’s base-set configuration includes 75 base cards, 100 Rookie Signatures and 35 Rookie Booklets, each with Gold, Platinum, Green and Black parallel versions.

Other 2012 Playbook Football highlights include . . .

Playbook Materials: Booklets featuring from four to eight swatches of game-worn material spelling out unique words, numbered to 99 or less; look for Prime jersey versions numbered to 49 or less.
Rookie Playbook Materials: Booklets featuring from four to eight swatches of event-worn material spelling out unique words for each rookie, numbered to 199 or less. Look for on-card autograph versions with two different die-cut phrases.
Look for 1/1 Rookie Booklet RC versions featuring printing plates.
Rookie Signatures: Autographs from the top rookies of the 2012 season, numbered to 149 or less. Look for Rookie Signature Black 1/1 versions.
Accolades Signatures: Autographs from some of the best players the NFL has ever produced, numbered to 49 or less.
Fabled Fabrics: Own a piece of NFL history with these a game-worn jersey cards from some of the NFL’s greatest legends, numbered to 99 or less; look for prime versions numbered to 49 or less.
We’ll have more on the exciting second installment of Playbook Football right here on The Knight’s Lance in the coming weeks. But for now, enjoy this extended first look at the product.

The playbook material cards could be really nice if panini doesn't pull a TTT and make all the words lame as hell

Disagree - had that picture extended out to the bottom of the card it would have been better. I dont understand why panini needed to separate the picture from the rest of the layout. He looks trapped up in the corner. Makes no sense.

The Luck book, on the other hand, looks great.

Rest of the cards - typical Panini. Especially that Rice. What. a. disaster.

i thought the problem last year with Playbook was the price point and the high numbering of the booklets. If Panini can figure out a compromise between those 2 points, it would be worth breaking.

the Rice and Namath are disasters, but the rest are nice, especially the Luck.

What is up with the Rice? It's horrible, I can't even explain what I dislike about it.

I hate die cuts that spell out words. I don't know, just rubs me the wrong way.

I think the designs are great with the exception of the Kuechly. I haven't liked any of Panini's designs in a while and this year's Playbook is a pleasant surprise. I do agree with a previous post that RGIII looks trapped in the corner.

WHAT?!?!?!??!?!

Playbook SUCKED last year for the price point and what came out of it, and many people had problems with the design of them as well.

I hate that Panini does this in all of their releases

This is what they said about Totally Certified, another crap product from last year
Quote:
The colorful, micro-etched dazzler known as Totally Certified Football that debuted to rave reviews in 2011 is totally making a comeback in 2012. Totally.
I mean, I get that they're not going to talk crap about their own products, but then just don't mention about how great of a product it was last year, just talk about how great it's going to be this year.

But making that kind of crap up just pisses me off

Agree. Exceptions are the NFL ones and the team script ones.

I don't like those either. Especially when they hide more than half of a multi-color patch.
