2013 Score Football Jumbo Box Break & Review

Design:  photo 25hot.jpg

One of my biggest gripes I had with this product last year was the blank space they left on the base set.  I’m glad to see they filled that in for 2013.  The Inscription autographs came out well as they are a throwback to the 1997 Pinnacle Inscriptions signatures.  All of the rookies are designed to look like the 1989 Score set to celebrate it’s 25th Anniversary.  These could have come out better looking.  The autographs have a big white box, and the photographs are zoomed-in head shots of the players while in their college uniforms.  If Panini wanted to use this design they should have waited to use photographs of them in their NFL uniforms like they did with the 2009 NSCC VIP set.

Price:  photo 25hot.jpg

Boxes are currently selling for $85.00.  The regular boxes sell for about $40.00.

“Hit” Quality:  photo 25hot.jpg

Jumbo boxes should contain (3) autographs plus an additional autograph or memorabilia card.  Regular boxes have (1) autograph or memorabilia card.  My box didn’t have that last “hit”.

I pulled the following:

Overall:  photo 25hot.jpg

Overall, I give this 2013 Score jumbo box 2.5 hot dogs out of 5 (1=poor & 5=perfect).  Panini should have held off on using the ’89 Score design this early.  Football set collectors should find it fun as there are handfuls of parallels to find.

These boxes must have been printed before the draft as the cards on the front don’t use the team logos.  Also, this being a jumbo box you get more than (1) “hit” even though the box says something different.
