Panini Promising Six Autographs Per Box of New Spectra Football

Panini will debut a new  football card product about the time spring training baseball games are getting underway.  2013 Spectra Football will be a higher end product with six autographs per box.

It may remind collectors of the company’s Prizm brand, as it will utilize what Panini calls its “patented high-end Optichrome printing technology”…essentially a whole lot of shiny stuff.

2013 Panini Spectra Football Eddie Lacy panini-america-2013-spectra-football-preview-16Spectra will have six packs per box with five cards per pack.

Of the six autographs, Panini promises at least two on card and numbered to 99 or less with the six memorabilia cards numbered to 299 or less.

Game-worn materials from this season’s rookie class and other stars will be included.

Fans of the old school NFL should enjoy the debut of the Pro Football Hall of Fame 50th Anniversary autographs, which will be spread throughout Panini products in the coming months.  In a sneak peek released Monday, Panini showcased numerous Hall of Famers who have signed for the product and the company says all signed cards will be limited to 50 or less.
