Panini America Previews the Rookie Royalty Coming to 2013 Crown Royale Football
Many of us from Panini America departed to New York one week ago today to take part in a seemingly unparalleled amount of activation that included Super Bowl XLVIII Media Day, two NHL Stadium Series games in Yankee Stadium, the 2014 Panini Pop Warner Skills Clinic, a public signing with New Jersey Devils star Adam Henrique and Super Bowl XLVIII. Indeed, a lot can happen in a week.
But while we were away, a lot was happening back here at Panini America HQ, too. Like, a lot. First and foremost for football collectors, though, was the steady influx of on-card autograph returns for the upcoming 2013 Crown Royale Football release. The product is set to release two weeks from tomorrow, and most of the heavy-hitting rookies (such as EJ Manuel, Geno Smith, Giovani Bernard, Mike Glennon, Terrance Williams, Tavon Austin, Denard Robinson and more) will have live autographs in the product.
The following gallery should provide a most regal appetizer for hardcore Crownheads to feast on (including the always-magnificent Silhouettes) until the Quality Control and Teaser galleries arrive in the coming days. Enjoy and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for additional coverage of 2013 Crown Royale Football.
(Oh, and somewhere in the gallery below we’ve added an early glimpse at one of the most spectacular Lance Alworth autographs you’ll ever see from the upcoming 2013 National Treasures Football.)
