Panini America 2014 Spectra Football & Black Football Pre-Ink Peek (19)

As Panini America’s 2014 Contenders Football continues enjoying a banner first week on the market, company officials are steadfastly working on the home stretch of the 2014 NFL product season, a dramatic conclusion that features two products already generating a great deal of buzz among collectors: 2014 Spectra Football and 2014 Black Gold Football. We’ve shown you savory sneak peeks at both of those products in recent weeks right here on The Knight’s Lance. Today, we’re showing you a little bit more.

In the gallery that follows, we take a pre-ink peek at just some of the gems permeating both products by showcasing images of cards that arrived hot off the presses from the Panini America production facility late last week. Much of what you’re about to see has already been counted, cataloged, QC’d and readied for shipment to the players on the cards to receive on-card signatures.

We’ll have many more to showcase in the coming weeks as these cards make their way around the country, receive their autographs from the respective NFL stars on them and enter the packout process. Stay tuned for that. But today, simply enjoy the early stage eye candy.
