Panini America Offers Detailed First Look at 2013 National Treasures Football (Gallery)
That thunderous commotion you just heard has nothing to do with the Seattle Seahawks’ Super Bowl-winning Legion of Boom secondary. Well, OK, the Legion of Boom has something to do with it. But there’s more to the ruckus than that, like the exclusive first look at Panini America’s 2013 National Treasures Football, the super-premium juggernaut due out in late March that’s primed to produce one of its best performances ever.
Every eight-card box of 2013 National Treasures Football will yield two base cards, Rookies or Legends numbered to 99 or less, three autographs numbered to 99 or less and three memorabilia cards numbered to 99 or less. The product is also set to deliver an unrivaled selection of on-card autographs, rare memorabilia, memorabilia booklets and Hall of Fame cut autographs. And yes, Panini America will also pay tribute to Seattle’s aforementioned Legion of Boom, front man Richard Sherman and the Seahawks’ entire 12th Man movement in truly unique ways.
Anchoring National Treasures Football once again this season will be the product’s trademark Rookie Signature Materials RCs with on-card autographs and jumbo prime memorabilia pieces from the players who attended the 2013 NFLPA Rookie Premiere. Base Silver versions will be numbered to 99 and paralleled by Gold (numbered to 49), Black (numbered to 25), Platinum (numbered to five), Nike Swoosh (numbered to two) and Laundry Tag, NFL Shield and Printing Plates (all numbered to one) versions.
