We brought you the pack-by-pack Teaser Gallery showcasing the product earlier this week and two must-see, international episodes of Panini Unwrapped yesterday (one from high atop Italy’s beautiful Anacapri and another from Ocean Blue Fish & Chips in Datchet, England). Today, we’re bringing you the long-overdue Quality Control Gallery that showcases a little bit of everything that the dynamic product has to offer. Enjoy this extended examination and let us know your thoughts on 2014 Limited Football if you’ve had the chance to break it.

More sticker dumps…..no way am I paying $100+ a box for this, no thanks
This gallery is littered with cause-for-pause cards, some very impressive Limited hits for sure. Thanks Tracy!
I Must Have Some!! LOVE IT! that Richardson card patch is… I just threw up in my mouth.. Sick!!!
I love the Game Day cards. Very nicely done on this product once again!
The gallery is beautiful, some of those cards are peeper-poppers, no doubt. However, I would like to reiterate that 1-pack products, in this enthusiasts’ opinion, eliminate much of the fun and mystery that is such an immutable part of the product-breaking experience. Much as I have, many collectors have distilled the box/case breaking process to a near-science, replete with superstition and stylistized pack-opening techniques, such as “the super-slow reveal,” the “hit hide,” (moving an obvious hit to the rear of the pack without looking), and “The Squeeze,” where each card is slowly revealed from left to right instead of a more traditional “bottom to top” reveal. I open just about every box with my 7 year-old daughter while we watch the NY Giants and Yankee Baseball, and it’s a very special experience for me. My daughter will never play the sports I did in High School and college, but we have found common sports ground and excitement in card collecting. The more packs, the more enjoyment, even if the pack is simply comprised of base cards.
Last thought…a disappointing 7-card pack that constitutes the entire contents of a $110 box (if not more), even with 3 autos and 2 mem’ cards, is far more likely to leave a collector with elevated blood pressure, yelling, “SERIOUSLY? That’s the BOX?!?” than the same haul spread through multiple packs would. And, when I use the ambiguous identifier, “a collector” in the above essay, I mean me.
