Panini America Announces Packout Updates to 2016 Spectra Football (Preview Gallery)
As the sun rose over North America this morning, most of the sports conversation across the country revolved around last night’s riveting start to the 2016 NFL season that saw the Denver Broncos squeak by the Carolina Panthers, 21-20, in an electric rematch of Super Bowl 50.
Of course, the Thursday night opener simply fanned the flames of anticipation for the first full Sunday of the NFL season that promises to put the spotlight squarely on the debuts of some of this season’s most promising rookies, including the likes of Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, Carson Wentz and more. And that’s where Panini America’s upcoming 2016 Spectra Football comes into play.
