On Eve of Packout, Panini America Provides First Look at 2014 Elite Football RCs
Tomorrow morning, Panini America officials will begin packout for 2014 Elite Football, one of the longest-running brands in sports cards history that’s prepping for its 16th annual installment. Despite delivering several innovative chases over the years (most notably Passing the Torch, Turn of the Century and Inscriptions autographs, and Aspirations and Status parallels), the product’s iconic numbered foilboard Rookie Cards remain key drivers.
That is especially true for 2014, when RCs (numbered to 999 or less) honoring Johnny Manziel, Blake Bortles, Teddy Bridgewater, Sammy Watkins, Mike Evans, Kelvin Benjamin, Jadeveon Clowney and other members of the spectacular 2014 NFL Draft Class arrive on the market July 23.
Be sure to follow the Panini America Twitter feed tomorrow when Panini America Brand Manager Chris Barr takes over to provide live updates of the 2014 Elite Football packout process directly from the company’s production facility. To get you ready for that, today we’re offering a must-see first look at just some of 2014 Elite Football’s key Rookie Cards featuring the game’s top newcomers in their NFL uniforms. Enjoy the gallery and stay tuned for continued coverage.
