The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: 2014 Playbook Football (141 Must-See Pics)

Panini America 2014 Playbook Football QC (2)

If you happened to be by the Panini America Twitter feed late last week, you were in for a special treat — a virtual front-row seat to packout process for 2014 Playbook Football. It was a process spearheaded by the Panini America Football Product Development Team and brought to you over social media by Brand Manager Chris Barr, who swapped his @PaniniPuck Twitter handle for the now-more-appropriate @PaniniPigskin Twitter handle to take over the Panini America account.

Truth be told, I don’t care what handle he uses as long as he continues providing the kind of captivating, from-the-production-line images that he did for 2014 Playbook Football. One of the industry’s most unique products (and, in the interest of full disclosure, one of my personal favorites) has undergone a major reconfiguration for 2014, with each two-card pack delivering one booklet card and one autograph card.

2014 Playbook Football is bolstered by some of the coolest single cards you’ll see all season, including the distinctive Rookie Booklets and Rookie Booklet Signatures, the return of the impeccable Down & Dirty Booklets, the addition of the simply sublime Game of Inches and Armory Booklets and so much more.

In the Quality Control Gallery that follows, we bring you up close and personal with many of the hits that surfaced last week during the packout process. But before we get to the gallery, we offer a quick recap of some of the buzz-generating Tweets that originated from the Panini America count throughout the day . . .

2014 Playbook Football arrives in hobby shops across North America on Friday. We’ll have more coverage of the product right here on The Knight’s Lance later this week. Until then, though, enjoy the must-see Quality Control gallery . . .

  1. Those game of inches books are amazing. Crown royale might have taken a step back this year (IMO) but Playbook is making up for it.

    Good to see that the group photo booklet autos are back too.

    One other small thing: Still using rookie premiere jerseys for Russell Wilson?

  2. Absolutely LOVE the veteran content in this gallery, Parcells is a highlight for sure. The prime mem on the Charles Sims book isn’t too shabby either. Great preview of Playbook’s return, can’t wait to see more. Thanks Tracy!
