2014 Prestige Football Retail Review

One of the questions we receive quite often is whether or not a specific retail product is worth buying. The answer is almost always 1 of 2 responses – “it’s ok” or “no”. Only a handful of times each year do we actually say, “Yes, buy that retail product, it’s great!” So how do we respond to the question for 2014 Prestige Football? Let’s take a look at the product.

J242-561x331

Rookie Cards

These are decent looking cards and we definitely enjoy the new fresh design. Easy to pull a handful of the top rookies – but not overly abundant like Score.

J234-360x500

Draft Picks Box Toppers

We love them – sweet design, unique card and just a cool bonus.

Insert Cards

Wow! There is a great variety of nice inserts in this set to be found in retail. Again they are quite easy to pull, but not too easy.

J235-360x500

Acetate Inserts

These are awesome. Once again a nice variety of different die-cuts and designs.

J239-540x500

Parallel Cards

Just in the retail we busted open we found Purple, Blue and Red Extra Point parallels. We aren’t a huge fan of parallel cards so these fall in the same category as all the others…..Meh.

J238-353x500

Numbered Cards

It was quite shocking to find an E.J. Manuel Serial numbered to /25 and then a nice Roddy White to /100. Very nice for a retail product.

Jersey Cards

The variety of jersey cards in this product’s retail version is fantastic. Not only is there a great variety, but all were serial numbered and 5 out of 8 were serial numbered to 99 or less. To top them all off we pulled another E.J. Manuel serial numbered to 25. For a retail product this is unheard of and really got us excited.J240-561x440

Final Thoughts

Yes, buy 2014 Prestige Football retail – it’s great! With a good quantity of rookies and the great variety of hits and inserts – 2014 Prestige Football is one of the best retail products we have busted this year. The product is a lot of fun to open, which is the most important aspect of breaking retail. As a bonus there is decent value in the product as well.
