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.
#179 Drew Brees
#123 Dallas Clark
#156 Karlos Dansby
#136 Maurice Jones-Drew
#30 Von Miller - Hot Rookies
#321 Colin McCarthy RC
#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!
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.
