Last week, we had a hands-on experience with the first football product of 2011 — SAGE HIT Low Series. Today, we tore into a box of 2011 Press Pass Football —  the second line from the year of the lockout.

For an early season product with a lack of league licensing, these cards come across with a decidedly official feel and a generally respectable aesthetic. Press Pass changed up the base set this year with horizontally oriented cards, featuring carefully cropped players alongside their respective stats in scoreboard-ish fashion.

Beyond the base set,  conceptually sound and visually strong inserts supplement the five-autograph break. We exceeded per-box hit odds with an additional memorabilia card and a signature from a certain soon-to-be product poster boy (Hint No. 1: Roll Tide!).

Below, you’ll find a handful of the cards we managed to pull in our break, including the back of a card that you could possibly win in the forthcoming 2011 Press Pass Football Box Busters video.

    Like father not like son! However hard as it seems the Love, support and pride goes both ways thru Concrete and bars. Doors might be closed for father but the doors are wide open for his son and now its time to run right thru them. Hold your head up Mark jr. and keep running like your running for freedom.

    Personally, I like this much better than Hit low-series. Pretty nice looking cards, made a great improvement over last years IMHO. Auto’s look crisp and contrast nicely against the background. Good Photography given certain licensing limitations and cool inserts. Game worn jersey’s are ALWAYS a plus. This should be a fun break. Good job, keep it up! :)
