2013 Absolute Football Images & Preview

October 30th, 2013

Panini released some images from the new 2013 Panini Absolute Football.  There are some nice looking cards, but I was disappointed overall.  You can see the entire blog HERE. Now, here’s the problem with Absolute.  At $144 per box, that’s $36 per hit.  There is not nearly enough content and value to justify that price. [...]

Week 8 NFL Rookie Rankings

October 29th, 2013

I’d like to apologize for not getting a Week 7 Rankings out.  Had a super busy week.  Anyway, we’ll use the stats and performances from both Week 7 & Week 8 for these rankings (as well as the rest of the season).  The last two weeks have continued to be pretty basic.  There have been [...]

Sneak Peak of 2013-14 Panini Prizm BK

October 28th, 2013

Panini showed us some images from the upcoming 2013-14 Panini Prizm BK.  I must say that I’m somewhat disappointed in this product.  Panini continues to refuse to put the amount of color and prisms in this product.  The cards look nice, no question about it.  You can see the entire blog HERE. The Green and [...]

2013-14 Panini Hoops Box Break

October 22nd, 2013

Panini busted a box of the new Hoops today.  As I said in my preview earlier, it looks like a very fun product to bust.  Not too sure about the hits.  Autos were kind of blah.  Memorabilia was decent with a Noah patch.  Certainly not awful.  I do wish there was more than 1 Artist [...]

2013 Panini Prizm Football Box Break

October 22nd, 2013

Panini broke a box of 2013 Panini Prizm FB on their blog yesterday.  You can see the entire article HERE. I know I was kind of harsh on this product with my preview.  However, this box just confirmed my fears.  The box delivered little to no value. The prizms were Dwyane Bowe, Peyton Manning Monday [...]

2013-14 Panini Hoops Images & Preview

October 22nd, 2013

The first 2013-14 Panini basketball product is set to release this week.  There has been some early buzz around 2013-14 Panini Hoops.  The rookie class for 2013-14 may not be great, but I think people are just ready for some newness.  It’s almost like that movie Groundhog Day.  Anything different is good right now.  We [...]

Week 6 NFL Rookie Rankings

October 17th, 2013

Another week and not a lot of excitement from the rookie class.  Sadly, it’s starting to look like the weak predictions for this class were pretty accurate.  There may not be a superstar from the entire draft.  No one has been able to separate themselves from the pack. #1. Eddie Lacy RB Green Bay Packers [...]
