Teaser Gallery: Panini America Cracks Open One Early Box of 2013 Prestige Football
Score Football may have gotten the nod this year in kicking off Panini America’s loaded 2013 NFL collecting season, taking that prestigious perch away from, well, Prestige, for the first time in more than a decade. The good news for collectors, however, is that 2013 Prestige Football remains a leader in every other way that matters.
Equipped more than ever to be a preseason juggernaut, this year’s Prestige brand — out everywhere tomorrow — delivers four autograph or memorabilia cards per box, great photography, Rookie Cards featuring players in their NFL uniforms, a fresh infusion of alluring acetate, zero redemptions and a box-busting allotment of calling-card inserts that have come to define one of football’s most venerable and revered brands.
That’s not just lip service. And to prove it to you, we busted one 24-pack hobby box this morning. The pack-by-pack results of this particular box can be seen in the gallery that follows. We’ll have much more coverage of 2013 Prestige Football right here on The Knight’s Lance in the coming days. But for now (in the name of appetite-whetting and due diligence), take a peek at the yield from one randomly selected box — and enjoy it.
