Teaser Gallery: Panini America Opens Early Boxes of 2014 Hot Rookies Football

June 24, 2014

Panini America 2014 Hot Rookies Football Teaser (33)
Now that we’re two days into one of the busiest weeks in recent Panini America history, it’s time to get cranking. Tomorrow, three new products release to the hobby (2014 Hot Rookies Football, 2013-14 Contenders Hockey and 2013-14 Select Basketball); Thursday the USA plays Germany in a huge FIFA World Cup matchup and then the 2014 NBA Draft tips off later that night. Today, we’re going to spend quite a bit of time today previewing the three aforementioned new releases, starting with 2014 Hot Rookies Football.
Clearly, there’s a reason the NFL season’s first hobby-only release is called “Hot Rookies.” In the Teaser Gallery that follows, we bring you a pack-by-pack breakdown of our three-box 2014 Hot Rookies Football thrill ride. The sold-out product releases in hobby shops across North America tomorrow, but we’re hoping this exclusive first look is enough to hold you over until then.

2014 Hot Rookies Football is a blast to open based on a unique box configuration that delivers four distinct pack types: One 32-card base-card/parallel pack, one 10-card pack featuring eight Rookie Cards and two Hot Rookies, one five-card insert pack and a three-card autograph pack. And within those pack types, there are Hot Pack versions.
The unique configuration begs the question: Do you open your three-card autograph pack first or do you save it until the end? Think about that for a bit and let us know in the comments section below. First, though, check out the gallery. We think you’ll like it.
