For most folks in the card-collecting universe, Panini America’s super-premium National Treasures brand really needs no introduction. It’s one of the most coveted releases in industry history regardless of sport and regardless of year. From football to basketball to baseball, National Treasures has captivated fans and collectors for the better part of a decade by consistently delivering some of the greatest cards ever made.

In late December, National Treasures will make history once again. National Treasures is going racing. The fitting grand finale of Panini America’s first season in NASCAR, 2016 National Treasures NASCAR Racing promises a high-thrills, heavy-hits experience featuring six autograph or memorabilia cards in every seven-card box.

More specifically, each box of 2016 National Treasures NASCAR Racing will include at least three autograph cards (from a lineup that is predominantly hard-signed), two memorabilia cards and one booklet card.

The product highlights of NASCAR’s inaugural National Treasures release are many and include . . .

  • A booklet lineup that includes cards featuring full sponsor patches and cards featuring up to eight signatures. 
  • Look for hard-signed Signature Firesuit Materials and Signature Sheet Metal Materials autograph cards.

    Really glad to see you going outside the usual realm of signers with Helton and France. I believe this is the first time ever any members of the France family have signed cards. I just wish they would be in an affordable set- this one is outside the price range of the majority of collectors, myself included unfortunately.

    This product has “by the hit” and “by the driver” breaks written all over it, some truly stellar designs forthcoming from this release. Thanks Tracy!
