Panini previews 2011 Prestige with retrospective Rookie Review set

By Andrew Tolentino | Football Editor

Panini America recently revealed a comprehensive look at the Back-to-the-Future-esque Rookie Review insert set in 2011 Prestige Football.

While these 40 inserts aren’t actually Rookie Cards, they offer a retrospective glance at the top newcomers from 2010. Last year’s poster boys — a la Sam Bradford and Tim Tebow — appear as expected, but the roster has been expanded to include the likes of not-so-obvious standouts — Chris Ivory, anyone? —  from last season.

Visual samples of the mid-May release are up for review after the jump.

This 25-card sampler features just a little more than half of the cards in the insert set. See all 40 Rookie Review inserts on the Panini America blog.

    Don’t want to sound negative, but what’s the point of these cards? The RC’s were ugly enough and quite affordable as it is. These cards scream “1995 Collector’s Choice 1 per pack” insert. I just don’t see any value or demand for these cards.
