The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: 2017 Donruss Elite Football (100+ Pics)

June 26, 2017

Panini America 2017 Elite Football QC2

The Panini America Product Development and Creative teams collaborated last season to breathe bold, new life into the venerable Donruss Elite Football franchise, ushering in an exciting new chapter in Elite’s proud history. The complete overhaul included everything from a new product logo to new parallels to a bevy of well-executed new designs. The product was met by collectors with a warm embrace — and almost immediately heightened expectations for next year.

Well, next year is now — and 2017 Donruss Elite Football is set to arrive in hobby shops across North America in two short days. As you’ll see in the revealing Quality Control Gallery that follows, last year’s revamp continues to serve the product so well. On average, each hobby box of 2017 Donruss Elite Football (five cards per pack, 20 packs per box) will deliver two autographs, one memorabilia card, eight inserts, six parallels and three Rookie Cards (numbered to 499).

Panini America Provides Detailed First Look at 2017 Unparalleled Football (Preview)

June 25, 2017

Panini America 2017 Unparalleled Football Main

At first glance, Panini America’s Unparalleled name seems like a misnomer for a football product that has so many parallels. But dig a little deeper and you come to find — as many collectors did last season during the brand’s debut — that it’s unparalleled not because it’s devoid of parallels but because there’s no other football product quite like it.

And when 2017 Unparalleled Football arrives in hobby shops across North America in early August, it will wield a similarly dazzling array of parallels and a new configuration that delivers two autographs and one memorabilia in every box (eight cards per pack, eight packs per box, 16 boxes per case).

Panini America 2017 NBA Draft Pre-Party Main

NEW YORK — On Tuesday night in New York City, just a few long Steph Curry 3-pointers or so away from Times Square, Panini America welcomed a few new members to the family during the company’s inaugural NBA Draft Pre-Party inside the impressive National Basketball Players Association corporate facility. The entertaining night featured special appearances from new Panini America athletes Lonzo Ball, Jayson Tatum, Jonathan Isaac and Lauri Markkanen— and veteran leadership provided by Knicks legend John Starks.

In addition to signing some autographs for upcoming Panini America products and projects, the rookies in attendance — representing last night’s second (Ball), third (Tatum), sixth (Isaac) and seventh (Markkanen) overall picks — shot some hoops with party guests, and helped Michael Hodges of STL Sports Cards and Bryan Gavin from Ultimate Box Breaks, crack a few early cases of 2016-17 Spectra Basketball.
