Collectors ready for another football card product won’t have long to wait. 2013 Panini Prestige Football is scheduled for release next week.
2013 Prestige football will have 24 packs and 8 cards per pack. Each pack will have at least one rookie card. There are four autograph or memorabilia cards per box (at least two autos). Many of the autographs were obtained during the 2013 NFL Rookie Premiere. There’s already a candidate for worst autograph courtesy of Geovanni Bernard (see left), who was apparently overwhelmed by the quantity of cards he had to sign during the Premiere.
Inserts include Prestigious Picks and NFL Draft Picks, die-cut acetate cards labeled Stars of the NFL, NFL Shield, Fantasy Team and Inside the Numbers. Back for another go-round are the Extra Points parallels return and the NFL Draft Materials insert that includes the actual jerseys and hats that were handed to the top picks on stage in New York.
