Absolute tends to be a good break for me. This particular box I broke had cards that fluctuated in secondary market value throughout the season, both up and down, which is why I tend to stay away from value when it comes to reviews, unless it is clear that the values are to the extreme, high or low. For the second year in a row, Absolute is aided by a rookie class that has excelled. Many found starting roles and a high percentage were put in leadership roles. There is a really nice base set and some fantastic hits to pull. All of this plus an extra card per pack this year makes 2012 Panini Absolute Football another solid choice for Football card collectors.
Panini Absolute Football falls towards the high end of our premium cards category. Each box contains four pillow packs with 5 cards per pack. Each master box contains two autograph and two memorabilia cards.
Here are the cards we pulled.
