Now available at trading card retailers everywhere, 2011 Donruss Elite is reminding football fans that the 2011 NFL season really may or may not be on the horizon.

In either case, we ripped open two boxes of Panini America‘s ramp-up product and found a hotbed of early Rookie Cards, inserts and base subjects. With photography from the NFL PLAYERS Rookie Premiere and in-game art from checklist veterans,  this release is a holofoil-heavy preview of what’s to come on cardboard, if nothing else.

Beyond the break is a 17-card sneak peek of the forthcoming Box Busters video, but you might want to take a good look at one of these hits, in particular.

Hint: The Copernicus of cardboard predicts that two lucky collectors will be chosen to receive this card or another prowling around in the soon-to-post video break.

    I’m not sure about the hint, but I think it is either referring to the name of the player: Kaepernick or to the circular orbit pattern of the Tamba Hall jersey card (with the red patch representing the sun and the circles being the planets orbiting it, as theorized by Copernicus). Personally I would be happy with the Mike Pouncey card instead of any of the others shown.

    Could do without the numbering in the word “Rookie”, but the set looks cool otherwise.

    The lockout seems to be getting positive and a great box none the less

    Cards look great! Cant wait to rip one of these open! Hopefully the lockout ends here soon so it makes the card collectors a little more excited to open up these cards!!
