Panini America Provides the First Glimpses of 2013 Prestige Football (Gallery)
Change is coming. For the first time in a long, long time, Prestige Football will not mark the official kickoff to a new NFL trading card season. For 2013, Panini America is giving that honor to the landmark 25th edition of Score Football (which we’ll preview in great detail right here on The Knight’s Lance in the coming days).
But this special Friday morning sneak peek belongs to 2013 Prestige Football, which will follow Score’s lead with a late-June release and a dramatically improved content mix. Each hobby box will deliver four autograph or memorabilia cards (at least two autographs guaranteed), 24 Rookie Cards, three Prestigious Picks, three NFL Draft Picks, three NFL Draft Tickets, three NFL Draft City Destinations, three NFL Passports and three additional parallels.
Rookie Cards of the top players in Prestige will be updated with photography from the 2013 NFLPA Rookie Premiere, making Prestige the first set of the year to include images of rookie stars in their new NFL uniforms. 2013 Prestige Football also will deliver three different on-card autograph sets featuring members of the 2013 NFL Draft Class. Put another way, no other $4 pack SRP in the industry offers as many opportunities to secure on-card autographs from the top 2013 rookies.
Other highlights of 2013 Prestige Football are many and include . . .
- Four different die-cut acetate insert sets (NFL Shield, Stars of the NFL, Inside the Numbers and Fantasy Team) seeded two per box
- Limited Rookie Card Signature Extra Point parallels inserted one per box
- Two micro-etched Inserts featuring the 2013 Rookie Class (Prestigious Picks and NFL Draft Picks) seeded six per box
We’ll have much more on the new-and-improved Prestige Football in the coming days. But for now, enjoy this extended sneak peek at the product:
