Panini posted the first image from 2009 National Treasures on their facebook page today, and the card looks completely different from any other rookie auto patch that they have done. I think its better than I expected, but its far from the level it should be at. The card looks heavily unbalanced and the lines in the back look weird with the swatch window cut the way it is.
Im hopeful for the rest of the set, but in reality, this looks like it would be out of a set on the level of Limited rather than a super high end set like national treasures. Also, if this is representative of the rest of what the set is going to look like, count me out.
