Doug Martin Pens a Compelling Chapter for Panini America’s 2012 Playbook Football
One of the highlights of my 2013 so far was watching Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie sensation Doug Martin interact so brilliantly with New Orleans-area Pop Warner athletes during the 2013 Panini Pop Warner Skills Clinic at the Super Bowl XLVII NFL Experience. One of the highlights of my 2012 was watching Martin interact so brilliantly with opposing defenses.
The doubly dangerous Martin, a 2012 NFL Rookie of the Year finalist, rushed for 1,454 yards last season, caught passes for 472 yards more and scored 12 total touchdowns. As a result, Panini America’s top cards of Martin stayed atop collector want lists all season long. But the cards you’re about to see might just become the most in-demand Martin cards of all.
Indeed, Martin’s penmanship on 2012 Playbook Football — Panini America’s penultimate pigskin product of 2012 (say that three times fast) — is sure to be a topic of conversation when the product releases in the coming weeks. And it’s debatable as to what folks will be talking about most. Will it be the former Boise State Bronco’s autographed “Blue Turf” or “Valor” prime-memorabilia booklets? Will it be his base Playbook RCs? Who knows, but take a look for yourself below and let us know what you think.
Oh, and just for good measure, we’ve also included a few quick looks at some of Michael Floyd’s Playbook handiwork. Enjoy the gallery, and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for more revealing peeks at Playbook in these final pre-release days.
