Sleep tight, football collectors. Panini’s 2012 Elite will be visiting you soon in a midsummer night’s dream.
As the manufacturer revealed today (unfortunately, not in iambic pentameter), the beloved mid-level brand will land just after July 4 with time-tested product traditions and enough nuances to satisfy modern collector cravings.
Each 20-pack box consists of:
Panini also noted that this year’s release will feature the top 2012 draft picks in their NFL uniforms — presumably from the company’s presence at the upcoming 2012 Rookie Premiere. As in years past, newcomers take center stage in Elite with base Rookie Cards numbered to 999 and autographed and die-cut parallels numbered to 699 or less. Rookie Inscriptions inserts should be particularly potent, as each card will feature an on-card autograph from one of the top 36 draftees.
As far as proven elites go, NFL veterans and retired greats should also shine in a number of insert sets.
Stay tuned to Beckett.com for more information on 2012 Elite Football as it becomes available. In the meanwhile, use the Beckett OPG to check out the most up-to-date pricing from last year’s set, 2011 Donruss Elite.

YEESSSS!! This stuff looks awesome. Thank you so much Panini for going back to the older looking passing the torch autos. Those are absolutely beautiful. I hope there is a dual 49er one this year. Maybe Patrick Willis/Navorro Bowman??? Anyways, these look amazing. A huge step up, nice work.
