The New Basketball HOFers, Top Stars from NFL Week 1 Arrive on Panini Instant
An action-packed sports weekend that started last Thursday night didn’t officially come to a close until the wee hours of Tuesday morning. Throughout those five splendid days, sports fans were treated to a smorgasbord of sights and sounds, including an exciting first week of the 2016 NFL season and the induction of one of the most star-studded Basketball Hall of Fame classes of all time. And Panini America’s Panini Instant real-time trading card platform is paying tribute to all of that.
Just minutes ago, Panini Instant launched three new cards honoring NFL Week 1 stars Carson Wentz, Aaron Rodgers and A.J. Green, and the first of three Basketball Hall of Fame cards, this one featuring Yao Ming. As with all Panini Instant cards, these are will be available to order for just 24 hours.
Each card is available in unnumbered base versions as well as limited-edition versions numbered to 50, 25, 10, five and one, respectively. Check out a preview gallery of today’s cards below. The tentative Panini Instant release schedule for the rest of the week includes:
