All October long, Panini America has partnered with the NFL and its players to honor Breast Cancer Awareness month as part of the league’s “A Crucial Catch” campaign.
The powerfully pink campaign, a partnership with the American Cancer Society, is focused on the importance of annual breast cancer screenings for women and once again this season saw NFL players, coaches and referees sport pink game apparel that has been auctioned for charity.
Not to be outdone, Panini America produced two special “A Crucial Catch” trading cards for each of the 32 teams in the NFL as part of the promotion using the 2011 Gridiron Gear Football design. The strikingly hued handouts were distributed all month long exclusively in stadiums throughout the country.
But late next month, a limited number of those cards will find their way into packs of 2011 Gridiron Gear Football, randomly inserted and numbered to 250 or less.
Presented here, for the first time in its entirety, is the complete 64-card Panini America “A Crucial Catch” gallery. Be sure to look for your favorite players when Gridiron Gear releases November 21.
