In its first two years of existence, Panini America’s Spectra Football franchise has developed a loyal following among hardcore collectors as a go-to brand for higher-end Optichrome kicks, jaw-dropping jumbo memorabilia cards, and absolutely stacked autograph and memorabilia rosters that work in concert with the colorful Spectra technology to create some of the most impressive looking cards of every season.
And when 2015 Spectra Football arrives in early September just in time for the start of the new NFL season, it will do so with all of its trademark characteristics firmly intact — and with a few new wrinkles, too. For 2015, Spectra Football will deliver color-coordinated inks to match its Neon Blue, Neon Green, Neon Orange and Neon Pink Rookie Jersey Patch Autographs parallels. It will also include only patches in that chase, too.
Each hobby box of 2015 Contenders Draft Picks Football (eight cards per pack, 24 packs per box) will deliver, on average, six autographs and 48 inserts or parallels. The product will feature autographs from the top players included in the 2015 NFL Draft as well as autographs from several NFL players featured in their college uniforms.
The 2015 Industry Summit is set to officially kick off tomorrow in Las Vegas as registered guests — retailers, distributors, card manufacturers, league officials — settle in for three straight days of meaningful meetings, round table discussions, new product reveals and spirited interaction that aims to have a positive industry impact in the coming year.
As has become its custom, Panini America will take a leading role in the Industry Summit once again this year, headlined by the company’s annual Tuesday address. But it’s what happens after that address — the distribution of the company’s fabled Black Boxes — that’s likely to steal its share of Summit headlines. Earlier this week we brought you a revealing first look at this year’s Black Box breakdown. Today, we’re digging a little deeper.
