The last few seasons have been a real treat for NFL rookie card collectors. In 2010 you had rookies like Sam Bradford, Tim Tebow, Dez Bryant, C.J. Spiller, Rob Gronkowski … and others that drove sales in 2010 & beyond. In 2011 was an equally epic year with QBs like Cam Newton, Colin Kaepernick, and Andy Dalton driving sales … plus you have stars like A.J. Green, Julio Jones and J.J. Watt that have elevated that draft class. Finally 2012 was awesome too – with Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, Doug Martin and Russell Wilson becoming stars in the NFL in a short period of time.
So the fact that 2013 was a fairly weak NFL draft by comparison is not really that big of surprise. Additionally, the fact that 2013 NFL un-opened boxes can’t possibly sell for the same price as previous seasons has many in this business sitting on product that isn’t moving. Unfortunately if you purchased boxes before these recent price drops – you grossly overpaid.
Here is a look at recent 2013 Panini Football box wholesale price reductions – that reflects the current market value of these poorly selling boxes.
First price is the new wholesale price. The second is the original wholesale price.
