    Mark Ingram is one of the hardest hitting running backs to come out of the draft since Adrian Peterson.

    Nice design this year. I especially like the jersey swatch design. It’s a good start to the upcoming (hopefully) season and get’s the juices going. I do wish they could have put in more action shots, but with all the licensing issues, it must be tough. As for Mark Ingram, if he goes to Miami like many are saying he will… Ronnie Brown and Mark Ingram in the backfield? Good Lord! That’ll help their quarterback a bit!

    I think Ingram will get a great chance to play this year as he will most likley go to miami and miami is in need of some fresh legs at the back position. What do you guys thinks?

    I believe Mark Ingram still has alot of thread on his tires.His auto is much improved and cant wait to see who drafts him so he can be a Great player in the NFL which is rare for Heisman trophy winners sometimes.He will be a Bulldozer threat so corners better look out!

    I think Press Pass is making the best out of not having liscence’s. The design looks good, and the on card autos are always good. The Mark Ingram is a nice pull, I’m interested to see what he does in the pros. That patch card also looked good. It would be nice to pull some of those.

    Press pass has always been my favorite product.I am a college autograph junkie.I think the cards look great this year even though they could not use the Logos.I believe Press Pass still pulled through with the little they had to work with .I cant wait to get my hands on them.Thanks for the Great edition of Box Busters!

    Not a big fan of the banner cards, I think the picture is too small on the card. That Mark Ingram card is very nice though. I also like the reflectors, they have a nice bling to them.

    Mark Ingram should be a beast in the NFL. He is my prediction for Offensive Rookie of the Year for 2011. GREat Pull!!!

    Pretty solid design from Press Pass again this year. The Ingram auto is nice–looks like he signed with a ruler across the card! Thanks for the contest.

    That Mark Ingram card is bronzalicious. :-)

    A nice rookie product.
    I wish the manufacturers could hold off a few more weeks until after the draft and have insert or parallel cards of there new pro teams to go with the college stuff.

    Press Pass 2011 Football is a good looking product. It has been a while since I bought Press Pass, but I think that I may consider buying a box. As for Mark Ingram, he is used to winning and proving critics wrong. If given a chance, barring injury, and if he continues his work ethic, he should prove skeptics wrong and have a decent career in the NFL.

    Despite the lack of college logos, I’m really looking forward to this product. I saw that JJ Watt and John Clay are part of the autograph checklist. I had season tickets to the Wisconsin Badger games last year and it was amazing to watch JJ Watt, Gabe Carimi, Lance Kendricks, John Moffitt, John Clay and Scott Tolzien have such a great year. My girlfriend and I even made the trip out to Pasedena for the Rose Bowl, although it didn’t turn out the way we wanted. During the season I had a chance to meet all of those guys and they all were super friendly. I can’t wait to collect these guys when they take their talents to the NFL. This product is a good start.

    I think Mark Ingram will thrive in the NFL this year. Just a feeling I have. He put a hurtin’ on my UGA Bulldogs, but I still wish him the best. Cool fact, though. He’s only the 6th player to ever win the Heisman & the National Championship in the same year!

    Just like this product would’ve been better if it had a good license, Mark Ingram would’ve been better if he’d played for Texas. :) Hope he gets to play in the NFL this year.

    Mark Ingram is definitely a solid running back and, hopefully, will succeed in the NFL. Lets just hope he “rolls” over pros like he did college defenses in his ridiculous Heisman season! Side note, gotta love his acceptance speech for the award! Also, I have to hand it to Press Pass, seems like there is always a nice signing surface for the autographs and the on-card aspect just adds to it.

    This product looks pretty good. Good to see a lot of autos being pulled from the one box, and nice work getting the Mark Ingram from the first box.

    The Ingram autograph was a great hit. As you stated, this broze version could very well be a short print as has been the case for many of the top prospects in previous Press Pass releases.

    Ingram could be a real steal in this year’s draft. He reminds me of another SEC 1st round running back who passed up his senior year to enter the 1990 draft; Emmitt Smith. Obviously, it remains to be seen as to whether or not Ingram can produce a career resembling Smith’s. He does however, have a very similar size, skill set and durability as Smith had when coming out of Florida. He would be a nice fit for the Dolphins if they can produce some sort of passing game to keep defenses honest.

    I also applaud Press Pass for a job well done in overcoming the adversity and producing producing a classy looking set! As always I love the Press Pass “on-card” autos! I hope to see some nice inscriptions as well.

    Nice looking product from Press Pass, it would be even better looking arriving in my mailbox! As for Mark Ingram, hopefully he goes to someone who will need a feature back, I’d hate to see this guy have to start as second string or share time with someone else, he’s got the goods. Of course once again you guys get some sweet pulls, at least it makes the vid worth watching.

    At first I wasn’t sure what Press pass would come up but I like this way more than Sage.
    The cards still have that Press pass look and feel and the autograph cards still look great I mean on card auto’s are way better thans stickers.I will probably get a box this year.
    As far as Mark ingram I think he will be a great asset to my team the Washington Redskins but either way he should have a huge impact this year wherever he goes.
    thanks again always nice to see the product before it goes live.

    I think MARK INGRAM will have a career in football, but I don’t think he will achieve HOF status or anything close to that. I could see him being a backup on a very good team, but I don’t see any success as a starter in his future.

    Box Busters is my new favorite video! I enjoy box breaks but I really enjoyed you guys on this one the most. Nice Ingram auto! His will be at least top three best to pull. It’s nice to see that Press Pass has included some nicer looking parallels this year.

    Well I am a HUGE Alabama fan from here in Birmingham. I am 34 so I have witnessed the 1992 and 2009 championship years (too young for the back to back in late 70’s). In 1992 the defense was the team and sometimes the offense. In 2009 the defense was a key (ala Cody vs Tenn) but Mark Ingram single-handedly won the South Carolina game with over 200 on the ground from basic a single back here I come set. He scored multiple TD’s in the Florida and Texas games which sealed both games vs undefeated Tebow and for a short time undefeated Florida. I will be honest I would LOVE to have the Ingram as so many others here do but my wife just lost her job which is gonna really stop me from being able to buy cards. I really started collecting football cards with Press Pass in 1999 because of the college unis and being first cards of the new year. I used to just do baseball and now I probably do more football than baseball and basketball combined, and it all started with Press Pass. I would be ridiculously happy with either the card or the box but if you feel someone here deserves the Ingram more I would love to have the box. Good luck to everyone because either way you are a winner. It is like trying to pick between Jessica Alba and Megan Fox, is there really a loser?

    Oh, and Mark Ingram is gonna be a boss in the NFL. Press Pass autos are looking better then ever this year in my opinion.

    Ingram definitely put in a impressive performance at the combine. Should be interesting to see where he falls in the final draft order. A great looking card and product in general!

  40. Posted March 31, 2011 at 1:07 pm | Permalink

    Here’s hoping Mark Ingram is the Next Emmitt Smith as people say. Hes a powerful back and I think had he not been injured last year he would be a more wanted Players in the Draft. I will be sure to get a press pass box this year. Love their product and on card autos.

    I have a couple of questions about the contest.
    1. Will the winner get both prizes, or are there two separate winners?
    2. When is the contest ending?

    From mod: Two separate winners and we’ll close it in the next week or so…

    I’m really impressed with the jersey cards and number of interesting insert sets in 2011 Press Pass. And you can never go wrong with a nice on-card autograph from Mark Ingram, who will be one of the hottest NFL rookies to collect this season.

    I think Mark Ingram might be the next RB that might get 1000 yards in his rookie season. I’ve always found press pass to be a pass on product as far as busting a box, but lately they been making it worth the price of buying a box with the on card autos hit per box.

    Would it be fair to say that this is a pretty weak NFL draft class? Not a clear cut number one, even including Mark Ingram? Either way, always nice to get autographed cards.
