Breaking News: Odell Beckham Jr. NT Autos Arrive at Panini America HQ (Gallery)
One hand. Sometimes that’s all it takes to change . . . everything. Certainly, one hand — the right one — is all New York Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. needed to deliver his first signature performance with one of the greatest grabs in NFL history. Surely you remember that mesmerizing, masterful, reality-defying moment in a Week 12 game against the Dallas Cowboys during Beckham’s 2014 rookie season.
As immaculate as it was improbable, that Sunday-night spectacle sent Beckham’s star soaring. One hand. One moment. Forever frozen in time. Eli Manning’s pass and millions of fans watching at home squarely secured in the palm of Beckham’s mystical, muscular mitt.
To be sure, Beckham, the eventual 2014 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, has since produced more than his share of signature performances. But it’s the one he delivered recently to Panini America — once again wielding that wonderful right hand — that likely will resonate most with collectors. Breaking news: Beckham’s 2014 National Treasures Football autographs are in the house! They arrived safely and securely at Panini America HQ late yesterday.
After more than a year of dedicated effort by representatives on all sides of the deal, arguably the most consequential autographed trading cards of the entire 2014 season — initially inserted as redemption cards — are about to be on their way to collectors who’ve waited anxiously with the rest of us.
The cards are being counted, cataloged and QC’d by Panini America Acquisitions and Customer Service personnel as we speak. Once that process is completed, the cards will be shipped to collectors. In the gallery that follows, we offer a must-see preview of just some of the cards that arrived yesterday. We think you’ll agree that every last one of them provides yet another Beckham signature performance.
