The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: 2014 Certified Football (123 Sweet Pics)

September 1, 2014

Panini America 2014 Certified Football QC (1)

Football fans, rejoice! NFL Kickoff Week has finally arrived. Thursday night, the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks host the Green Back Packers in a must-see matchup that will pave the way — fittingly — for the release of Panini America’s 2014 Certified Football the very next day. Collectors are in for a new-look Certified that blends the most adored aspects of the brand’s legacy with some subtle Optichrome tweaks that breathe new vibrancy into the product.

Returning for 2014 are staple elements such as Fabric of the Game, Freshman Fabric and a rainbow array of popular Mirror parallels. The existence camouflage-insert Hot Boxes adds an exciting chase element at the box level; there’s also a rare Johnny Football chase card that arrives roughly every other case or so.

In the gallery below, we bring you a detailed preview of the product by showcasing some of the hits that surfaced during last week’s Quality Control process. Enjoy the extended preview and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage of 2014 Certified Football.

    The Sky’s the limit and pro bowl cards are really nice too.

    But Clyde Gates in a Dolphins uni… is that a card from a 2011 set that mistakenly made its way in there?

    These look great. You guys know that 255 players besides Manziel were drafted, right? He’s been on every box cover this year besides one, I think, haha.
