PACK RIP - 2011-12 Elite

Elite is another mid range product that has recently been released by Panini. Although it seems to fall behind the recent releases of Between the Pipes and SpX, I still managed to pick up one lone pack just to appease my appetite.

This years Panini Elite product comes with 5 cards in a single pack and 20 packs per box. The odds of me pulling anything good aren't fantastic but at the same time, it is doable.

Let's take a look at what I got:

These cards reflect dust on my scanner like no other product can. These things are drenched in foil (a la Panini) and are prone to finger prints. Although a lot of people have been complaining about the design, I don't mind it personally. It's simple and it sticks to its 90's roots. 

The fifth card of the pack was this:

Man my scanner is dusty. Anyways, this AUTO is of the rookie variety and comes from Tim Erixon. Or if you are going by the signature it's of "TiEix". Obviously code. 

I really like the choice of colour for the border and how the ink of the AUTO matches the border! I think this is a really nice looking card, especially with the blue, white and red of the Rangers jersey.

So no Canucks in the pack but a solid rip nonetheless. Any good/bad feedback you want to release off your mind about the product? Feel free to let me know how you feel in the comment box below. Any success with pack/box rips lately?



  1. Nice Break. If you ever want to unload that Erixon, you know how to reach me!


  2. I wouldn't mind the 90's design if it came with a 90's price.

  3. Hey u wanna swap a Dan Cloutier game used jersey card from the 06-07 fleet ultra set in exchange for the Tim Erizon auto?
