February 27, 2017


The spirited march to the final few releases of Panini America’s 2016 NFL trading card season picks up considerably this week with the Wednesday arrival of 2016 Honors Football and Friday’s release of 2016 Select Football. As always, The Knight’s Lance will be your must-visit destination for complete preview information this week, starting with today’s revealing Quality Control Gallery featuring 2016 Honors Football.

Early glimpses of 2016 Honors Football so far have have been met with eager anticipation, thanks largely to the Originals and Recollection Collection inserts. The Originals insert offers collectors the rare opportunity to recapture some of the greatest trading cards in the proud history of Panini America brands in their original form. The cards will be slabbed. They will not be altered. They will appear in 2016 Honors Football just as they appeared in their original releases.

The Recollection Collection insert includes some bona fide history-makers of its own. Collectors can easily differentiate Originals cards from Recollection Collection or Rookie Autographs just by looking at the seal atop each One-Touch holder.

Originals cards include this seal:


Recollection Collection cards and Rookie Autographs include this seal:


On average, each three-card box of 2016 Honors Football will deliver two autographs and one base or parallel card. All cards produced for 2016 Honors Football are numbered to 99 or less and all Rookie Cards are autographed.

You can get a closer look at the product in the Quality Control Gallery that follows. Enjoy the preview and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage.
