Unboxing Day: Panini America Eyes Big Hits from 2016 NT Football Preview Break Event

March 22, 2017

Panini America 2016 National Treasures Football Sneak Peek Break1

PHOENIX — Yesterday afternoon, the typically sultry confines of Arizona were no match for the heat being generated inside an air-conditioned hotel ballroom that for most of the week will be home to Panini America’s annual Spring Training Road Trip. But on Tuesday, baseball took a back seat, if only temporarily, to a special sneak preview break of Panini America’s upcoming 2016 National Treasures Football featuring group breakers Ultimate Box Breaks,, Blez Brothers and 702 Breaker$.

With their respective rapt audiences tuning in live to the festivities, the four breakers spent the afternoon offering a scintillating early look at one of the most anticipated products of the year. If you watched any of the breaks live, you know exactly what we’re talking about. If you didn’t, well, don’t fret. In the gallery that follows, we provide a must-see recap of many of the monster hits that surfaced yesterday.

Oh, and stay tuned to the end of the gallery for a few Ezekiel Elliott cards that weren’t pulled yesterday but will be major targets for collectors when the product arrives in hobby shops across North America on Friday.

Enjoy . . .

    How did you go about choosing the 4 breakers that you did?

      Our hobby sales department usually selects the breakers we work with at these events.

    You should watch some breaks on Youtube Friday or ‘regular’ customers and not sponsored Flavor Flav hype men breakers. Here’s a sample….”I paid $700 for a box with 3 jerseys cards of CJ Anderson, Allen Robinson and Corey Coleman, and 3 autographs of Tajae Sharp, Leonte Caroo and Jeremy Hill. Oh and TWO base cards…..You HAVE TO STOP these overloaded boxes for previews, we all laugh about them on Blowout’s Forum….

      Those are the big hits from all of the breaks that day. Not overloaded at all. It’s a testament to the amount of great stuff in a product like NT. Not all boxes have the be-all, end-all hits. But there’s a lot of great stuff in the product.
