2011 Score Football

Photobucket

I'm surprised someone didn't beat me to posting this pack.  Maybe it's because with the uncertainty of a 2011 NFL season looming it's hard to get excited about new football cards?  While I could care less for Tony Romo being this year's poster child for Score, I was happy to see the old school Score logo being used again for something other than hockey.  Nice move Panini!  This pack came from my LCS, but I don't think there are any real differences between hobby and retail this year.

#198 Brad Smith - Glossy parallel

I like this year's design so much more than last year's.  There does seem to be a bit of wasted space at the top of each card, but I can forgive Panini since they brought back the old logo.  I also heard that Panini dropped any serial numbering this year so while all the various levels of parallels exist none of will be numbered...bummer.

I wonder if hockey is going to have the same design this upcoming fall.

Reminds me of Pro Set!

RS?

Design does seem unintentionally retro; not a copy of an old design, but something believably similar in tone and concept to 1990. Still deciding if that's a good thing or not.
