Flawless Finish: Patrick Mahomes II Stars in Panini America NFL Player of the Day Finale

June 19, 2018

Patrick Mahomes NFL POD Main

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — When it comes to spectacular performances in the clutch, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes II knows a thing or two about how to deliver. Anyone who’s watched him play knows that. But watch him away from the field and you come away equally impressed. Certainly those in attendance last Friday during the 2017 Panini NFL Player of the Day grand prize event will attest to that. They saw firsthand just how engaging . . . how accommodating . . . how impressive the Chiefs’ superstar QB is.

Certainly, Mahomes left a lasting positive impression on J.P. Murnan and his family and friends. It was Murnan — the diehard Chiefs fan, collector and 2017 Panini NFL Player of the Day grand prize winner — who Mahomes traveled to Overland Park, Kan., to see. A day that began with a private party for Murnan and his guests (during which Mahomes passed the ball around, fielded questions, opened a briefcase of 2017 Flawless Football, signed autographs and posed for pictures) ended at The Baseball Card Store, where Murnan and Mahomes shared the grand prize with the community. The results, as you’ll see in the video and gallery that follow, speak for themselves. Enjoy . . .

Panini America Offers Detailed First Look at 2018 Chronicles Baseball (Preview Gallery)

June 13, 2018

Panini America 2018 Chronicles Baseball Gleyber Torres Select

Panini America’s Chronicles Baseball brand debuted last year with a compelling catch-all kind of configuration that brought many of the company’s most popular (but-perhaps-off-the-market-for-a-time-for-one-reason-or-another) brands under one collecting umbrella. The product composition provided for a diverse opening experience and allowed diehard fans to chase new Rookie Cards from a host of popular brands. Clearly, the idea worked. In late August, 2018 Chronicles Baseball arrives with its own eclectic mix of new collecting possibilities.

For 2018, Chronicles Baseball will deliver a larger variety of programs, including Cornerstones, Score, Select, Phoenix, Prizm, Crusade, Contenders Optic, Spectra, Illusions, Status, Studio, Prestige, Rookies & Stars, Limited and Classics. On average, each hobby box of 2018 Chronicles Baseball (eight cards per pack, six packs per box, 16 boxes per case) will deliver three autographs and one memorabilia card.
