Holiday Treasures: Panini America Explores the Gifted 2013 National Treasures Football
As collectors across the globe celebrate Christmas today with family, friends and — if they’ve been especially good this year — their favorite Panini America trading card products, we thought we’d take this opportunity to offer an extended pre-ink peek at 2013 National Treasures Football, which promises to be, simply, one of the most gifted football products of this or any other season.
We first began teasing the impending juggernaut a few weeks back — first on Twitter, and then with a comprehensive follow-up right here on The Knight’s Lance. So if you were blown away by those preliminary sights, well, the sky’s the limit on the beauties you’re about to behold. The following gallery details myriad bona fide collection makers (fabulously filthy game-worn booklets, the incredibly heady Hats Off, and the stunning Colossal and Notable Nicknames inserts) in their unsigned state. The next time you see these beauties, they’ll be boasting bold on-card signatures.
But when you have something as epic as the images that follow to share (consider it a holiday eye-candy feast, from us to you), well, you show them even before they’re signed — and after, too.
From all of us at Panini America to all of you: Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year. Thanks for making 2013 a truly extraordinary year. Here’s to an even bigger and better 2014.
