First look: 2013 National Treasures Football cards


By Susan Lulgjuraj | Beckett Football Editor

Panini America is adding a little color to 2013 National Treasures Football.

A number of the autographs and insert designs will step away from the usual all-white design to bring colorful backgrounds to the cards.

Panini’s high-end football product is scheduled to come out in late March with eight cards in every box. Each box will have two base cards, three autographs numbered to 99 or less and three memorabilia numbered to 99 or less.

The Rookie Signature Materials Rookie Cards will feature on-card autographs and jumbo prime memorabilia from players who attended the 2013 NFLPA Rookie Premiere. There will be Silver (numbered to 99), Gold (numbered to 49), Black (numbered to 25), Platinum (numbered to five), Nike Swoosh (numbered to two), and Laundry Tag, NFL Shield and Printing Plates (1-of-1) parallels.

Other cards with rookies will include Jumbo Prime Booklets, Hats Off, NFL Gear, and Colossal Jersey Numbers

Some of the memorabilia cards will include game-worn patches of Captains, 50h Anniversary Hall of Fame, Pro Bowl, Brand Logo, NFL Shield and Seahawks 12th Man.

Panini will feature Hall of Famers on several inserts, including Hall of Fame cut autographs, Hall of Fame 50th Anniversary Materials, and Signature Materials. The cut autographs will be from 29 inductees from the first four Hall of Fame classes.

Veteran autographs will get a presence in 2013 National Treasures. They will have on-card autographs on Jumbo Prime Booklets, Notable Nicknames and Colossal Jersey Numbers

And the Super Bowl Champs will get special cards made featuring the Legion of Boom and the 12th Man.

    looking for info on the 2013 Panini National Treasures – Pro Bowl Letterman set. As the cards spell out the players last name, how do they handle repeating letters. I have the W-A-T from JJ Watt. Since each card is numbered to 4, are there only 4 T’s or are there 2 sets of T’s for a total of 8 T’s so that a total of 4 complete signatures could be completed. My sanity could depend on your help

      @Donald — You’d need to check with Panini for certain, but it may be one of each letter in his last name W-A-T-T. Sometimes they number their letter patches to the total number of letters while other companies label each as a one-of-one.
