Panini America, NFL.com Team Up to Offer Virtual Cards of Top Fantasy Performers
It seems rather implausible that a 30-card Panini America set featuring the best NFL players on the planet and seen by millions of fans throughout the 2013 season could fly under the radar of hardcore collectors. But unless you happen to be a fervent fantasy footballer who frequents NFL.com, you may have missed it. But with the NFL playoffs — and #PaniniWildCard — set to begin in just a few hours, we’re about to let you in on a little secret.
Throughout the 2013 NFL season, Panini America and NFL.com joined forces on a virtual card set featuring the top 30 fantasy producers of the season. The virtual card set — inspired in design by Panini America’s Official 2013 NFL Sticker Collection — was updated weekly and is available for viewing on NFL.com.
New players were added to the top 30 using action photography from that week’s games. The result was an action-packed virtual card set that combined the best of both worlds: Fantasy superstars and Panini America NFL trading cards. In the event that you may have missed this year’s set, we’ve provided images of the most recent 30-card set in the gallery that follows. For the record, 17 of the 30 virtual cards feature players on playoff teams. You can also check out the gallery now on NFL.com.
