Panini Peek: 2013 Prominence Football
When 2013 Prominence Football arrives in early September, collectors who coveted the brand during its maiden launch last season will no doubt appreciate the many returning elements that made the 2012 edition so much fun to collect (including the Embroidered Patch Autographs and Rookie Class Letter Signatures) while also including the Prominence debut of the sensational Rookie Gridiron Gems Signatures.
Of course, collectors also will notice that the product’s configuration has been prominently revamped, too. For 2013, Prominence Football will deliver three five-card packs per box (to better allow for individual pack purchases), with each box delivering three autographs, two parallels and 10 base cards or RCs.
Also new for 2013 Prominence Football: No stand-alone memorabilia cards. Every hit in 2013 Prominence Football will feature an autograph from an insert lineup that includes Rookie Field Plates Signatures, Rookie Gridiron Gems Signatures, Rookie Class Letter Signatures, Rookie Helmet Signatures, Rookie Embroidered Team Logo Patch Signatures, and short-printed dual- and triple-signed Eminence Signatures.
Heck, there’s even a new twist (or pull, rather) with the venerable Rookie Gridiron Gems Signatures, which for 2013 will pull up from the top as opposed to the traditional slide-pull configuration; all will be numbered to 249. Oh, and this year, there are parallel versions of the Rookie Embroidered Patch Signatures featuring Rated Rookie (numbered to 249 or less) and NFL Shield (1/1s) versions.
We’ll have plenty more on the new-look 2013 Prominence Football right here on The Knight’s Lance in the coming weeks. Until then, though, enjoy this first extended look at the product.
