Panini America Offers Detailed First Look at 2016 National Treasures Football (Gallery)
Panini America’s National Treasures Football franchise is not so much a trading card product as it is a trading card icon; an industry institution that long ago revolutionized the high-end collecting game, forever raising the bar of what’s possible with super-premium football releases. In the decade since National Treasures burst onto the scene, the product has only grown in stature — and when 2016 National Treasures Football arrives in mid March, the product will be both a tribute to the 2016 season and a tribute to the 10th anniversary of the fabled NT brand.
On average, each box of 2016 National Treasures Football (eight cards per pack, one pack per box, four boxes per case) will deliver three autograph cards, three memorabilia cards and two base or parallel cards numbered to 99 or less. Fans and collectors can chase the calling-card National Treasures Rookie Patch Autographs numbered to 99 and featuring jumbo-prime memorabilia pieces and on-card autographs. There are also Brand Logo, Jersey Number and NFL Shield 1/1 parallel versions.
