Chapter One: Panini America Provides Early Review of 2013 Playbook Football Booklets
From the day it was first previewed right here on The Knight’s Lance in early July, Panini America’s 2013 Playbook Football has spent almost three solid months generating the kind of mouth-watering anticipation typically reserved for precious few elite products. Indeed, it was obvious to collectors from that very first glimpse that the third installment of Playbook had the potential to go down as the best one yet.
After seeing the early results from the Quality Control process this week, one thing has become voluminously clear: The intense pre-release buzz for 2013 Playbook Football is warranted. Boasting a bevy of new booklet variations, the addition of veteran booklets and the rich innovation of Down & Dirty Booklets, Flywire Booklets and player-drawn, play-diagram one of ones, the product is destined to be a nationwide best-seller.
Over the next few days, we’ll have a page-turning parade of previews, including this gallery detailing just some of the booklet possibilities. In the coming days leading up to Friday’s official release date, we’ll bring you exclusive video of the two-case Quality Control process and the making of Alfred Morris’ filthy Down & Dirty Booklet.
Enjoy the gallery and stay tuned all week long for more.
