Product Rewind: 2014 Panini Elite Football

Product Rewind: 2014 Panini Elite Football – Given the fact that it less than a year old, it may seem curious that a 2014 football card set is being featured as our Product Rewind product of the week. However, the timing of its release on the calendar may have caused this brand to get lost in the shuffle. We’ll tell you why it may be worth a second look.

Despite the initially underwhelming 2014 NFL Draft class, collectors have much to hope for from several players. As the sophomore season for these players approaches, now may be the time to pick up a few boxes of 2014 Panini Elite Football. Prices are currently undervalued for both boxes and individual cards.

This trend shouldn’t last long as year-over-year, Elite is a product that consistently delivers top rookie content. Odell Beckham Jr. is one example of a rookie player who has, thus far, exceeded expectations. Chances are at the end of the season there will be a few additional players from the 2014 NFL Draft class to added to that list.

2014 Panini Elite Football delivers ON-CARD Rookie Autographs (in several different sets) and (3) Base Rookie Cards #’d to 999 in Every Box!

In addition, the collector favorite insert set, Passing the Torch, returns and has a strong checklist of dual autographs including (to name a few):

  • Joe Montana/Colin Kaepernick
  • Jerome Bettis/Le’Veon Bell
  • Junior Seau/Manti Te’o
  • Plaxico Burress/Odell Beckham Jr.

The product development team at Panini, incorporated several different design elements and materials into their card stock including acetate, die-cuts, color parallels and more. Some of these elements are combined together and yield, unique and highly collectible cards.

Here is a look at the complete checklist and other content contained in boxes of 2014 Elite Football from Panini America.
