November 24, 2013

Panini America 2013 Contenders Football Countdown (41)

While gridiron collectors across North America patiently await the arrival of Panini America’s 2013 Totally Certified Football and 2013 Select Football in the next three weeks, company officials are steadfastly keeping at least one eye focused on pre-release preparations for the juggernaut that follows those two: 2013 Contenders Football.

In the last few days, several key on-card additions have arrived back at Panini America HQ for packout, including pivotal Rookie Cards and variations from EJ Manuel, Montee Ball, Terrance Williams, Cordarrelle Patterson, Aaron Dobson, Manti Te’o and Robert Woods. What’s more, Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman autographed and returned a limited number of his 2012 Contenders Football RCs for inclusion in this year’s release.

As you’ll see in the gallery that follows, 2013 Contenders Football is packed with an impressive variety of variations and new autographed inserts that promise to keep one of collecting’s most storied brands atop collector wantlists once again.

Enjoy the previews and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for additional coverage of 2013 Contenders Football.
