Review This Box Of 2012 Panini Rookies & Stars And You Could Win Prizes In Our NFL Player Of The Day Contest

As a new contest idea I thought it might be fun to provide you with an opportunity to help me write a review.  Well... at the very least, part of one.  I will compensate you handsomely with some of the prizes from our 2012 Panini America NFL Player of the Day promotion if I use your comments.

One of the grand prizes from our prize pool is a box of 2012 Panini Rookies & Stars Football cards.  That box is still sealed, but I did open a different box of R&S that I got just after the release date.  Of course, you can pick up you own box of Rookies & Stars from your local card shop.  Use this link to go to the Panini Player of the Day website and use the Hobby Shop Locator to find the store nearest you.  

Below you will find some basic information about the product and scans of some of the cards I pulled along with all of the hits.

To enter this contest you should look at all the information and make your own comments/review about the product.  Use these questions as guidelines:

2012 Panini Elite Football NFL Trading Cards Box Break Recap And Review

How do you know a company is listening to its customers?  When direct feedback is incorporated into their products.  That is exactly what has happened with 2012 Panini Elite Football.  Besides dropping the Donruss name, Panini has removed what collectors felt didn't work and added some nice touches with some new inserts to make this a group of stylish looking cards and a product full of desirable hits.

Elite Football fits nicely into our premium cards category.  Each hobby box contains 20 – 5 card packs with a promise of four autograph and/or memorabilia cards per box with at least 2 of those hits being autographs.
