Panini America Delivers Detailed First Look at 2016 Honors Football (Preview Gallery)

January 8, 2017


In late February, longtime football collectors will get the rare opportunity to recapture some of the greatest trading cards in the proud history of Panini America brands with the release of 2016 Honors Football. Bolstered by a base set numbered to 75 or less (and featuring four parallels) and a Rookie Autograph set numbered to 99 or less (also featuring four parallels), 2016 Honors Football also delivers a robust mix of previously issued autographed cards and hard-signed rereleases of Panini America’s best memorabilia cards.

Each box of 2016 Honors Football will deliver two autographs and one base or parallel card. The product features a 25-card, all-autographed rookie base set honoring the top rookies from the stacked 2016 NFL Draft. Also randomly inserted? One of each card from the legendary 1999 Elite Passing the Torch Autographs set featuring the likes of NFL legends Walter Payton, Johnny Unitas and Peyton Manning.

The highlights of this unique product are many and include . . .

  • Some of the greatest modern-era football ever made, including Contenders Rookie Ticket Autographs of Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and more.
  • Previously released memorabilia cards updated with on-card autographs.
  • The popular Recollection Collection insert featuring previously released autographs from years past featuring hand-numbering and an exclusive “Recollection Collection” emboss.

We’ll have plenty more on 2016 Honors Football in the coming weeks right here on The Knight’s Lance. But for now, enjoy this early peek:
