The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: 2016 Classics Football (114 Must-See Pics)

May 16, 2016

Panini America 2016 Classics Football QC4

When it comes to epic comebacks, the venerable Classics Football franchise is about to pull off something that would make John Elway or Brett Favre proud. After five years away, Classics Football is set to make a powerful return to the game with a 2016 edition steeped in old-school nuance and yesteryear brilliance. In every way that matters, 2016 Classics Football is a blast from the past that fits perfectly in the present.

Yesterday’s Sunday sneak peek at 2016 Classics Football was just the beginning of our preview plans. Today, we’re unleashing the full Quality Control Gallery that details the base set, inserts, parallels, autographs (including hard-signed BuyBacks of original Classics cards), memorabilia cards and more.

Although 2016 Classics Football will arrive in hobby shops across North America next Wednesday, there will be a special sneak peek event later this week during the 2016 NFLPA Rookie Premiere Presented By Panini America. Stay tuned for more details on that.

On average, each hobby box of 2016 Classics Football (10 cards per pack, 14 packs per box) will deliver 14 inserts, 14 Rookie Cards, 12 parallels and one autograph. Memorabilia cards will fall once every two boxes on average. You can check out Classics’ throwback brilliance in the gallery that follows.

Stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance in the coming days when we offer a compelling preview of the set’s many variations and SPs (including Glossy, Blank Backs, No Name Fronts and more). Until then, here’s the eye candy . . .

    I’m thrilled to see Classics return, especially the classic twist of the buyback autos from the past releases. Thanks Tracy!

    I like those Next Level inserts, and love the autographed buy back cards, especially since there were stamped and serial numbered. Great job!

    This would’ve been THE ultimate product, but why the stickers? UGH! Killing me!
