Pack Break - 2011 Topps Platinum

We are several weeks into the 2011 NFL season and there are already lots of different cards to choose from.  Topps again offers up Platinum - this year with some needed improvements.

Retail packs only yield 4 cards, but I guess I got lucky as I got 5.  Woohoo!  This year's design looks so much better when compared to last year.  I like how all the cards look like Refractors.  I believe the Champ Bailey card is a parallel as there is a small amount of gold on each side of the Broncos logo.

Inserts include various colored parallels, some serially numbered.  Autographs and patch cards are also present.  The checklist appears to be pretty good as each team is represented by a few star players.  Most of the big name rookies also show up.

I ended up with this die-cut Patrick Peterson RC.  I don't know what it's called or what the odds are, but it's pretty cool.  If anyone wants it let me know.

As with baseball there are no shortages of card options when it comes to football this year.  Platinum has been improved from last year and looks really nice so if you have been curious (probably not since this pack break is way over due!) I don't think you'll be too disappointed.
