About 120 footballs are expected to be used in the game in the game between New England and Seattle at the University of Phoenix stadium in Glendale, Arizona. All will be “marked” by PSA/DNA to combat counterfeiting.
Panini America has big plans for the NFL Experience, including three special card sets — one devoted to the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks, one devoted to 16 of the greatest moments in Super Bowl history and one devoted to the hometown Arizona Cardinals.
Panini is honoring the Seattle Seahawks as NFL champions with an 18-card commemorative set featuring Malcolm Smith, Wilson, Lynch and images from Super Bowl XLVIII.
To ensure collectors and fans are really getting game-used footballs (and pylons and even the coins used for the opening toss), PSA/DNA will once again ‘mark’ everything to ensure authenticity. Approximately 120 footballs are expected to be used during the game.
Northwest Sportscards will be conducting two signings featuring members of the Seattle Seahawks. The first will be held Sept. 22 with Richard Sherman.
