The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: 2016 Unparalleled Football (Checklist)

August 9, 2016

Panini America 2016 Unparalleled Football QC73

Much has been made about the name “Unparalleled Football” since Panini America first announced that the new product was coming in late May. How, exactly, can a product with plenty of parallels carry a name that implies being completely devoid of them? Good question. But 2016 Unparalleled Football, which releases tomorrow in hobby shops across North America, is not unparalleled because it lacks parallels. It’s unparalleled because it’s quite unlike any other football product on the market.

To be sure, 2016 Unparalleled Football is a different kind of product. It places a premium on the thrill of the chase and whiz-bang printing technologies with captivating names such as Hyper Mosaic, Swirlorama, Wind Chimes, Diamond Awe and more. There also are highly collectible autograph and memorabilia versions of the various colorful parallels.

In the revealing Quality Control Gallery that follows, we deliver a comprehensive first look at the product, from the base set to the inserts to the parallels to the autographs and memorabilia. Base card #’s 1-100 parallel out to memorabilia and autographs. Base card #’s 101-200 (including Rookie Card #’s 151-200) parallel out to autographs only.

Be sure to stick around after the gallery to check out a schematic breakdown of 2016 Unparalleled Football. We’ve also included a complete checklist after the gallery, too. Enjoy the first look and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage.

Here’s the schematic breakdown . . .

    Hey Tracy, I was wondering will Marshal Yanda being getting a card this year because it would be awsome. He wasn’t included in the All-Pro inserts in Donruss or Unparalleled. He’s been an All-Pro 4 of the last 5 years, would be awsome to see him on a card or 2.

      Hey, Matt. Our product guys have said Yanda most likely will be in the comprehensive Complete set, which is slated to arrive in January.
