Breakin Wax: 2011 Panini Contenders Football Blaster Box

In this edition of Breakin Wax, I decided to open up a blast box of Contenders 2011. With one autograph per box and a decent price point, it was worth the risk.

In each blaster box of 2011 Panini Contenders football, there are five packs with five cards per pack. There is also one guaranteed autograph and a price point of about $15 now.

The base card design is a nice one. You have a well laid out ticket design on the right hand side and a nice action photo on the left. This is one of the better Contenders base card designs in years.

Some nice looking inserts including a Demarco Murray Rookie Roll Call and a 2011 Rookie Draft Class with Julio Jones on it.

And here is my autograph. Not the best, but still a rookie ticket auto. Not sure if Aldrick is playing anymore, but with some of these players, you just never know when they will make their impact. That's the fun thing about Contenders. The autograph checklist is very deep and even includes kickers.
Overall, worth the risk. I have seen some good autographs be pulled from blaster boxes including short prints. I like the overall design of the product and now that the price point is $15, I think it's worth taking a gamble on.
