Wait, they actually called a set Impeccable? Are we that thin on synonyms for “perfect?” That is fucking hilarious. Only Panini folks, only Panini.
Either way, it looks like Panini might be bringing a bit of Eminence to Football, which should not be surprising at all – especially considering that they have to fill more holes on their calendar than anyone should ever try to undertake.
Regardless of the stupidity of the name of the set, the cards do in fact look really good. Better than I expected could come out of the Panini camp, especially with how much of a hot mess their products have been up until this point. As far as I can tell, no goofy photos, no big white boxes, no insanely giant text, and no separated sliced off players in trying segment out a design.
I especially like the HDR type filters used on the photos, which end up making this a painted type approach for the set. I think that on card autos will only serve to make this set better, and hopefully the rookies do look as nice as they do on this sell sheet.
My only concern is that this set is going to be insanely expensive, similar to what we see on the Basketball side with Eminence. If that is the case, and those lame gimmicky silver pieces are the reason, Im going to be very disappointed. Those cards didnt do much for the first time they were released, so im not sure what they are trying to do bringing them to a sport where high end isnt as big a deal.
Looking forward to see what info comes in the next few months, as I have been waiting to see how they can show us they actually deserve a look for any of their bullshit so far.
