Teaser Gallery: Panini America Opens Some Early Boxes of 2013 Absolute Football

October 31, 2013

Panini America 2013 Absolute Football Teaser (1)

This time tomorrow, Panini America’s 2013 Absolute Football product will be live and rocking in hobby shops across North America. As has become customary, the venerable brand with the passionate pigskin following will deliver one memorabilia or autograph card in every pack, a lineup bolstered by the fan-favorite Rookie Premiere Materials insert and Spectrum Autographs parallels.

New this year are the one-per-pack Hogg Heaven cards and a bold, player-centric design that has received rave review so far. In the Teaser Gallery that follows, we take you pack-by-pack through three boxes of 2013 Absolute Football, a 12-pack thrill ride that generated big hits and even bigger entertainment value.

Enjoy the gallery and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for additional coverage of 2013 Absolute Football.

    Is it how the Absolute basketball will looks like too? Nice cards!
    (But i think it would be better if the printing plates would be signed by the players.)

    The entire industry has made a fantastic change with all of their products for the better! It’s exciting to see the differentiation in products from 2012 to 2013. To no fault of the sports card manufactures, Panini included, the market demand has not been as strong as 2012 due to the 2012 draft class. Hence my continued purchases of 2012 hobby boxes. Albeit, on that note, these are some of the best looking cards I’ve seen in a long time! Besides the soft 2013 rookie draft class, I am continually impressed by these new products!

      That may be true but whatever the class there is no reason to put players like above, Bonner who was put on IR in camp and is nothing but a possible future Special teamer anyway, and Alford who has 6 total tackles, plus all the other (I’ll call them non-essential players) in these nicer sets. Nobody cares if they aren’t there and it just really deflates an otherwise exciting box of cards. Not that u guys are the only guilty ones but find a couple sets a year, put guys like these in them and leave them out of the rest. If people want these guys then they can purchase those sets, but stop spreading these players throughout the nicer boxes of cards already…Please, Thank you!

    Maybe it is just me, but it looks like the Tyler Eifert in Box 2, Pack 3 and Cordalle Patterson in Box 3, Pack 1 look to have no jersey patches!

    Tracy, I’ll be honest. Starting at the beginning of this year I was not a football card collector at all. HOWEVER, with great product after great product put out by Panini, I’ve slowly become a 2-sport collector! My wife loves opening Score football with me, we’ve had incredible luck with Leaf Certified, and I can tell we’re going to absolutely be astonished by Absolute! (alliterations intentional!) Keep it up!

      Awesome, Ryan. Glad to hear that. The family that collects together, stays together!

    Definitely another solid showing for Absolute this year, one of the year’s best football products annually in my opinion. Thanks Tracy!

    Will absolute football be in a retail product format, Tracy, as in previous years?

    Absolutely awesome! Nice Patterson hit! I am sure Scott must have drooled over the Cowboys pull above and that Doug martin patch is whack!

    Sometimes hard to find these, but I tracked down ten packs. Arian Foster, Megatron, multiple RG3s & Lucks, one Hogg Heaven …
    … and nine Rookie Jerseys …
    … including Cordarrelle Patterson, Jordan Reed and Denard Robinson
