Is Panini Playbook Worth It?

Panini is closing out the 2011 NFL season with the release of 2011 Panini Playbook Football set on April 4, 2012. I am not sure who’s decision it was to finish the 2011 releases 3 weeks before the 2012 NFL Draft but Panini is giving it a shot with this high-end product. Each 4 card pack/box will run $200 each. You will pull:
One On-card autographed Rookie Premiere Booklet
One Rookie autograph card
One Memorabilia card
An additional auto, prime memorabilia card or booklet card

Some of the highlights include the Chronicle Signature Booklets, which contain up to 8 autographs and are numbered to #/10 or less, and Playbook Materials Booklets, which contain up to 8 game-worn relics and are numbered to #/49 or less.
The set is 136-card checklist with 50 Common Signatures (#/99 or less), 50 Rookie Signature Silver (#/299 or less) and 36 Rookie Booklet Silver (#/399 or less)
Some of these relics look amazing like the rookie booklets and Mammoth patches but both the Rookie Autographs and Accolades Signatures are sticker autograph cards (the Rookie Premiere Booklets are on-card though) and dime-sized relics in the memorabilia cards makes this product a lottery. Panini states that each 10 pack/box case will include one Playbook Material booklet card and three “Top-Tier” Rookie Booklet cards but is it worth it or just wait and buy the singles later?

The “Top-Tier” checklist is made up of: Cam Newton, Von Miller, A.J. Green, Andy Dalton, DeMarco Murray, Jonathan Baldwin, Julio Jones, Daniel Thomas, Randall Cobb, Blaine Gabbert, Christian Ponder and Torrey Smith
