With the NFL preseason beginning, the market for football cards is about to heat up! Which makes it no surprise that Panini has a new football card set dropping next week on August 24th. And you could say this set… is wild!
The Hobby Boxes are gonna be absolutely loaded with chase cards, and no I don’t just mean that zebra print Ja’marr Chase card. Let’s start with the XRC Rookie cards that come both base, autographed, AND with different variants including Tie-Dye, Gold, and the ultra rare Black.
The Hobby Boxes have a bunch of other exclusives, and they look incredible. The boxes have exclusive inserts like…
SNAKESKIN!... Which is actually called “Phenomenon.” Maybe the pattern is based on a particularly phenomenal snake.
The base set is split up into a few base “subset” with varying degrees of rarity. From low tier to high tier, they’re called Concourse, Premier Level, Club Level, and Field Level. Though they are different rarities, each tier does include a bunch of parallel prizms including Tie-Dyes and Zebra prints.
There are also Rookie Signature Swatches and JUMBO Rookie Swatches! The Jumbos have 3 black iterations, including “Black Prizm Brand Logo,” “Black Prizm Laundry Nike,” and “Black Prizm NFL Shield.” Each of which is 1 of 1.
With the selection of rookies in this set including some players who are truly shining in this preseason (Malik Willis is gonna put Tannehill out of a job in the next year, guaranteed!) and all the incredible color variants you’ve come to expect from Panini, this set is going to be one full of cards that people will be chasing for years to come!
