Promising Rookies Get Updated Treatment in 2011 Absolute Memorabilia Football

September 21, 2011

In the grand scheme of things, an NFL off-season devoid of minicamps and OTAs isn’t really that big of a deal.

But for football card collectors targeting players other than the 36 stars who attended May’s 2011 NFL PLAYERS Rookie Premiere, the absence of those prime preseason photo opportunities translated into a higher-than-usual number of early season Rookie Cards incorporating studio images or images from the 2011 Scouting Combine.

But with the glorious 2011 NFL season now in full swing, Panini America’s photographers have had the proper opportunity to travel the country and take pictures of the top rookies in game action. That’s spectacular news for collectors, especially those anticipating the October 5 release of 2011 Absolute Memorabilia Football.

Not only will the product include some of the sweetest on-card autographed RCs you’ve ever seen, it will also include the first game-action photography of top 2011 rookies such as Denarious Moore, Patrick Peterson, Ryan Kerrigan, Jacquizz Rodgers, Rahim Moore and more.

For those anxious collectors who simply can’t wait to see members of the new class in uniform on their Rookie Cards, the following gallery is for you.

    Are they still also sold in retail, and can we get at least a complete checklist of the inserts? Thanks! :-)

    Tracy, do Justin Houston, Shane Bannon, & Cecil Shorts all have Rookies in this? Just curious.

    The first company or product that makes a Doug Baldwin rookie card will get at least one box bought by myself. :)

    Nice, Glad I pre-ordered a case of this even more now. The combine gear was getting old fast…..

    Defiantly happy you guys got my boy Moore in there :)

    Tracy, Did you happen to get any behind the seen footage of Timeless and the work put in for Matching Jerseys? Would love to see Troy Aikmen’s rookie jersey before being cut up.

    If not, Hopefully you can do a nice long video like last years National Treasures :)

      Thanks, Ryan. Unfortunately, I didn’t get any footage of the Timeless Treasures process, but we’ll make sure to do something special for National Treasures.
