2014 Absolute Football Cards Overview


Absolute continues its long run with a new release that celebrates the brand’s 20th anniversary. It promises to bring a lot of memorabilia variety. Each hobby box has two autographed cards, three memorabilia cards plus other inserts and parallels. The base set includes 100 veterans and 50 rookies, with four Spectrum parallel versions. One of the key inserts is Rookie Autographed Jersey Quads that features an autograph along with four memorabilia swatches. The basic version has jersey swatches, while other levels have ball, glove and shoe swatches. Rookies are also featured with larger swatches with the NFL shield, plus ball, glove and shoe patches.

Panini is packing eight players and eight jersey swatches on the Tools of the Trade 8 Player cards (10 total cards) that also have Spectrum and prime swatch parallels. Tools of the Trade Complete Rookies will have 40 cards with six swatches each from different parts of the uniform. Tools of the Trade Helmets will have 40 cards numbered to 99. Absolute Ink features 100 cards with four Spectrum parallels. The Rookie Autographs are numbered to 199 and feature 50 rookies.

Hogg Heaven is also back with 90 different players. Leather and Lace is a familiar name with a football swatch along with a shoelace swatch. Absolute always delivers a ton of memorabilia cards in a lot of creative ways. It looks to be heavily rookie-focused.

    I really wish the Card Companies would stop with the Quad patches. I would rather have more single patches. Nothing worse than having a Quad Patch, and all because a player or rookie isn’t in demand. It lowers the value and demand for those cards. Please Listen up Card Companies!!!! Listen to your CUSTOMER!!!!!
