The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: 2013 Playbook Football (with Bonus Video)

October 09, 2013


As one of the most unique NFL trading-card products on the market, Panini America’s Playbook Football has provided a virtually unrivaled box-busting experience during its first two years. But for year three, that experience promises to grow even richer thanks to several new additions, a few modifications, some unique new content and an earlier release date.

2013 Playbook Football hits hobby shops nationwide on Friday with four-card boxes delivering four autograph or memorabilia cards (including at least two booklets). Earlier this week, The Knight’s Lance served as a fly on the wall as Panini America’s Jim Stefano, Ben Ecklar and Joseph Mackey conducted the Quality Control process.

We shared some of what they uncovered during that process yesterday; today we’re showing you the rest. But we’re bringing you more than just pictures today. After the gallery, stick around to watch exclusive video of the two-case QC that includes tons of hits and key product information from the folks who built 2013 Playbook Football.

To quote Stefano, Panini America’s Senior Director of Product Development, “this is one playbook I wouldn’t mind studying.”
