Panini America Offers 40-Card First Look at 2013 Elite Football’s Top Rookie Cards

July 05, 2013

2013 Elite Football Smith

Next Wednesday, a revamped 2013 Elite Football will greet football collectors across the country packing an abundance of whiz-bang technological twists and a new-look Rookie Card design unlike any the venerable brand has offered in quite some time. Todaywe’re going to preview that design by showcasing the RCs of the 40 players who attended the 2013 NFLPA Rookie Premiere in May.

The cards remain on the Elite brand’s trademark foilboard card stock, but the improved design in concert with that foil stock gives the cards a completely new look and feel that’s just more, well, elite.

Base versions of these RCs will be numbered to between 699 and 999 on the front of the card. Enjoy this first look and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance in the coming days for additional coverage of 2013 Elite Football. Tomorrow we’ll examine the way-cool, laser-cut Portraits insert; on Monday we’ll deliver a must-see QC gallery.
