November 15, 2018

Panini America 2018 Prime NASCAR Racing Teaser2

Say this about Panini America’s NASCAR Product Development team: They know how to end a season in spectacular fashion. And for proof of that, look no further than the company’s new 2018 Prime NASCAR Racing. The final NASCAR release of the 2018 season arrives in hobby shops across North America tomorrow and is “primed” to impress with a ridiculously rich mix of super-premium race-used memorabilia cards and some of the sweetest-looking hard-signed autograph content of the year.

We brought you an extended preview of 2018 Prime NASCAR Racing earlier this week with a deep-dive Quality Control Gallery and we thought it was impressive then. But then we opened some early boxes of the product (and didn’t want to stop) and were blown away even more. One look at the results of the six boxes in this Teaser Gallery and you’ll have a better understanding of what we mean. Enjoy the break and stay tuned for additional coverage.

November 15, 2018

Panini America 2018 Flawless Collegiate Basketball QC3

Panini America officials have spent the last few seasons diligently taking high-end college trading cards to a completely new level. That transformation has only intensified in recent months with the likes of 2018 National Treasures Collegiate Football and 2018 Flawless Collegiate Football delivering a simply stunning array of autograph, patch and memorabilia content. Tomorrow, high-end hoops collectors will find the same to be true of 2018 Flawless Collegiate Basketball, which features on-card autographs from all of the top 2018 NBA rookies in the Rookie Patch Autographs chase.

In fact, every autograph in the product will either be hard-signed or a cut signature numbered to 25 or less. On average, each briefcase of 2018 Flawless Collegiate Basketball (10 cards per briefcase, two briefcases per case) will deliver six autographs, two memorabilia cards and two gemstone cards. New this season are rare Conference LogoTeam LogoBrand Logo and Final Four Logo patch variations in the RPA set.

From the firesuits to the flashy and festooned fast cars, there’s just so much prime trading card opportunity. And later this week, Panini America officials will release a product engineered largely to take advantage of that fact. Panini America’s 2018 Prime NASCAR Racing arrives on Friday featuring some of the sweetest NASCAR patch cards ever manufactured. As you’ll see below, the product is also rich in on-card autograph content of the sport’s top superstars.

On average, each hobby box of 2018 Prime NASCAR Racing (seven cards per box, eight boxes per case) will deliver three autographs, three memorabilia cards and one base or parallel card.

Panini America 2018-19 Certified Basketball QC2

Panini America’s venerable Certified franchise has been a trading card staple across many sports for many years, but it’s been done in basketball only once, during the 2009-10 NBA season. In the years since, any Certified Basketball product has included the “Totally” modifier. But on Wednesday, Certified Basketball makes a triumphant return to the marketplace with a stacked 2018-19 edition boasting the fabled Mirror parallels, an array of hard-signed autograph inserts and more.

On average, each hobby box of 2018-19 Certified Basketball (five cards per pack, 10 packs per box, 12 boxes per case) will deliver two autographs, one memorabilia card, 10 inserts and seven parallels. Among the most sought after of Certified’s autograph inclusions promise to be the hard-signed Rookie Roll Call and Certified Potential chases featuring the stars of the 2018 NBA Draft Class.
