The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: 2013 Crown Royale Football Hobby (81 Pics)

February 19, 2014

Panini America 2013 Crown Royale Football Hobby QC (18)

For much of the last week, our Crown Royale Football coverage here on The Knight’s Lance has been dedicated exclusively to the retail version of the product that was quality controlled, packed out and shipped in advance of hobby. But now, we’re ready to focus our preview gaze firmly on the higher-end hobby version of the product.

The hobby edition of 2013 Crown Royale Football delivers one autograph or memorabilia card per pack, with at least two autographs guaranteed in every four-pack box. The product returns flush with its royal calling cards, including the still-stunning autographed Silhouettes Rookie Cards, the Panini’s Choice Award Die-Cuts and the most uniquely shaped base cards on the market.

Boasting an inviting array of hobby-exclusive parallels, memorabilia inserts and base inserts, 2013 Crown Royale Football Hobby offers a different set of collecting adventures than its retail counterpart. You can get a good idea of what we mean by perusing the Quality Control Gallery that follows. Enjoy, and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for additional coverage.
