Next month, Panini America returns one of football's longest-running and longest-adored collecting icons to the gridiron with a bold, new logo, several new insert sets and tons of Rookie Cards honoring the ballyhooed 2014 NFL Draft Class. For most collectors, Score Football, an annual collecting staple since that historic debut back in 1989, signals the official kickoff of a new NFL collecting season. That's certain to be the case when 2014 Score Football arrives.

That’s certain to be the case when 2014 Score Football arrives.
Every box of 2014 Score Football will deliver 24 packs (12 cards per pack, $1.99 SRP); in addition, each 24-pack box — available at both hobby and retail — will yield six retail Hot Rookies, four Scorecard parallels, four Numbers Game inserts and 12 additional inserts.
2014 Score Football is also bolstered with the brand’s normal array of chase-worthy parallels, including Showcase (#’d to 99), Gold Zone (#’d to 50), Artist’s Proof (#’d to 35), Red Zone (#’d to 20), End Zone (#’d to six), Gem Masters (#’d to only one).
If you followed along with Panini America’s Twitter account during the 2014 NFL Draft, you caught your first glimpses of each pick’s 2014 Score Rookie Card. Today, we’re going to bring you a whole lot more of what to expect from one of collecting’s favorite brands. (Although many of the mockups that follow lack the foil enhancements that will appear on the final cards, they do help paint a more complete Score previews.)
Oh, and if you missed our Saturday preview of Panini America’s 2014 Hot Rookies Football, it’s all right here.

Cool-can’t wait. Any word on release date yet??
That can’t come fast enough!!!!!!
HOT! btw, I just found Score in a store near me. some marketing manager have been working realy hard. Tracy, I think you know what I mean. I sent you some news.
And the first salvo from Panini of the deep and vaunted 2014 NFL rookie class has been fired….& it looks spot-on.
The rookie portraits are very nice and that they’re stylistically different from the veteran’s action shots is nice. Even better, the auto’d issues. The “Hot Rookie Autos” should provide fun, early chase cards… All in all, a very worthy looking “Freshman ’14!”
Awesome. Cant wait for this years release even though I am still working on all the other years autos, parallels and game used. If ya missed it, check out my pc spotlight by Tracy Hackler on here …. search ken wagner and it should bring it up. Keep up the great work Panini …. I’m loving each new year of score.
Really nice, great lots of inserts. How much cards on a base set+subset+RC?
Any word on how many cards are in the set?
I’m not going to lie… I like 2013’s design better. That being said, I am much more of a fan of the Brothers in Arms and Field Commander inserts! Also, will there be Hobby-only Jumbo packs available again this year, or are we back to the basic packs? I do love that Score offers a lot of value for not a lot of cash, one of my absolute favorite sets to collect every year!
No hobby-only jumbo packs — but the hobby-only 2014 Hot Rookies Football.
Wow! Very impressed! I do gotta ask Tracy, last years Score base card photography was action packed whacked is this years just like that?
Really digging the Field Commanders set, I might be partial because that was the only one shown with a Colts player though. Thanks Tracy!
