They need to do something with the rookie cards. Is Panini really this lazy? I was hoping for more. This design was alright 3 years ago when they started it in basketball...rinse and repeat...rinse and repeat.

Was really nice to get hard signed autos so early in the year.
You might be thinking of the Freshman Fabric cards (which had the bigger name rookies). Yes they had sticker autos.

Looks really good so this far...
I digs that many of those cards got shiny surface (I'm a sucker at this)

Also, it's called branding. It's a CERTIFIED FRESHMAN FABRIC. Any type you see like that, any sport, you know what it is. Take a look through SPx's history:
The only two that resemble each other are the 2006/07 Zajac and 2007/08 Bernier. The rest are totally unique. The point is a company doesn't have to change the design every single year. You can call it lazy, but if it ain't broke don't fix it.

I still don't see why everybody hates stickers in every product.
Would you rather have a sticker or have it hard signed but be a redemption that you have to wait 9 months for the player to sign?
Sure stickers don't always look great, okay they never look great but they sure as heck beat waiting for a card to be signed. When you think about it no matter what any of the companies do they will always get hate. Use a sticker everybody goes crazy about a sticker, do hard signed and some of the players don't get the cards back in time then everybody goes crazy about a redemption.

I thought the first Certified was pretty cool and last season's was thoroughly unimpressive. Most of the inserts look pretty meh to me, just like last year, but I gotta admit I really do like the Goalie Pulls cards. It's not a game changer but at least they're being creative and shaking things up. The base card design is phenomenal IMO and if I wanted to collect a base set from this season so far this one looks like a winner.
