Panini America Premieres a New-Look HRX in 2013 Prizm Football (Watch It Now)
Panini America’s pioneering HRX Video Trading Cards generated international headlines when they debuted in 2010-11 Totally Certified Basketball more than two years ago. The mere concept of a trading card embedded with an HD-quality screen and up to 20 minutes of video footage was mind-blowing. Panini America’s execution of that concept, well, that was earth-shaking stuff, too.
But when collectors begin busting 2013 Prizm Football tomorrow, they’ll notice a new-look HRX card in every pack. That’s right, we’re bringing a rare experience that once was limited to those lucky enough to pull one of the scarce redemption cards from a pack to the masses.
The first installment of the new-generation HRX concept combines 24 top NFL rookies — including Geno Smith, EJ Manuel, Eddie Lacy and more — with exclusive video footage of each player captured at the 2013 NFLPA Rookie Premiere. The video content is activated when collectors scan the QRL code on the back of each HRX card. But that’s no ordinary QRL code. It requires a special app that is absolutely free and takes less than a minute to download.
