Rare Photo Variations Deliver a Compelling Chase to 2016 Clear Vision Football

Panini America 2016 Clear Vision Football QC40

Panini America’s new 2016 Clear Vision Football, live everywhere today, might be causing some collectors to have double and even triple vision when it comes to certain players dotting the product checklist. Rest assured, your eyes aren’t deceiving you. There are multiple versions of, say, Jerry Rice, who appears on base cards as a 49er, a Raider and a Seahawk.

Rice is one of many current and retired superstars who appear on super-tough, base-set Photo Variations in 2016 Clear Vision Football. In the checklist below, we provide a breakdown of players who appear in the Variations 1 and Variations 2 sets. According to Panini America Football Brand Manager Rob Springs: “Level 1 variations are very short-printed. Level 2 variations are super tough.”

It’s worth noting that the base parallels for each of these players are numbered just like all other parallels. Only the base-level cards are short-printed.

    Great information and added value to the product, any way to determine SPs while breaking if you don’t hit the base as a frame of reference? Something like a B on the back next to the card number or “level 1/2” printed somewhere? Thanks Tracy!
