Newton’s Theory of Wow: Cam Continues to Shine with Special Panini America Delivery

October 5, 2011

Make no mistake about it: Carolina Panthers superstar quarterback Cam Newton is enjoying one of the greatest starts to a career in NFL history.

Through his first four games, Newton has passed for almost 1,400 yards and five touchdowns, rushed for 133 yards and four more scores and he’s been a finalist for Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week honors every week. But football card collectors will likely find Newton’s performance on Wednesday to be his most impressive feat yet.

That’s when he returned to Panini America headquarters what no doubt will be some of the most coveted Rookie Cards of the 2011 season. The awe-inspiring shipment included Newton’s on-card handiwork for upcoming Panini America NFL trading card products 2011 Absolute Memorabilia, 2011 Crown Royale, 2011 Certified and 2011 Gold Standard.

His Absolute Memorabilia gems were rushed to the Panini America printing facility within minutes of arrival for inclusion in that product, which is packing out as we speak. We’ve had the chance to spend a little more quality time with the others. Now, it’s your turn . . .

    Pretty nice. I gotta say that his on-card autos look WAY better than on sticker. Beauties.

    Wow these bad boys are beasts!! I picked Cam from the start to have an amazing season and be rookie of the year. I have been trying to scoop up his cards but cant seem to pull any! If only Jerell jernigan or Tandon Doss become rookie of the year i will be all set lol!

    But anyways, the cards look great. Absolute memorabilia is an awesome product and these are examples of why.

    Holy Cow…those look amazing. And I agree 100% with Helmutt, the on-card autos make these better than ever!

    These are about the sweetest looking football cards I’ve ever seen! I bought a ton of Absolute last year, hope they come out soon (and you post a complete checklist), looks like this year will be more of the same!

    Did Cam’s autos get inserted into the new 2011 Crown Royal packout, or are they currently redemptions? My LCS just got some boxes today and I’d like to know. Thanks!
