2013 Panini Rookies & Stars Football hobby box

Sport:  Football
Product:  2013 Panini Rookies & Stars hobby box
Break Date:  September 6, 2013

Breakdown:  Four hits with two guaranteed autos 

Summary:  It's a good looking product with real good value. Two guaranteed autos and four overall hits are solid output at the box's price point (between $80 and $100 depending on the source). Considering that the box will also include parallels and inserts (including the desirable Crusade set), it's a really good buy.

This box in particular was filled with good hits. The Tavon Austin auto/jersey is probably the hit of the box, but the Gragg auto /25 is a nice hit as well. The parallels that came out were solid as well - the Lacy rookie /49 may turn out to be a great card if he develops into the pro he's projected to be, and the Brady parallel /32 is a good looking card as well. We didn't pull an Crusade parallels, but the base Crusade Cordarrelle Patterson is a hot card.

Overall, this was a really good box.
