Panini America Provides Detailed First Look at 2018 Obsidian Football (Preview Gallery)

September 13, 2018

Panini America 2018 Obsidian Football Main

When it comes to Panini America’s wildly popular Optichrome printing technology, there is no shortage of successful products utilizing the alluring finish for their own unique benefit: Prizm does its thing. Optic does its thing. Select does its thing. Spectra does its thing. But there’s an Optichrome evolution coming . . . and it’s called “Obsidian.” The newest innovation delivers what the product solicitation material bills as “an eruption of sharp, edgy and contemporary designs.”

What it also delivers is something dubbed “Electric Etch” that presents the game’s best veteran superstars and hottest rookies as you’ve rarely seen them. Set to hit hobby shops across North America in late November, each hobby box of 2018 Obsidian Football (seven cards per box, 12 boxes per case) will deliver, on average, four autograph or memorabilia cards, two Electric Etch parallels or inserts and one base card — all numbered to 100 or less.

Panini America Offers Detailed First Look at 2018-19 Certified Basketball (Preview)

September 12, 2018

Panini America 2018-19 Certified Basketball Main

The last (and only) time Panini America produced a standalone Certified Basketball product sans the “Totally” modifier, Stephen Curry had zero rings and zero threes, Blake Griffin had dunked over exactly zero Kias and James Harden’s beard was little more than a five o’clock shadow. It was February of 2010, to be exact, when 2009-10 Certified Basketball arrived. It hasn’t been back since. But that changes in a huge way later this fall with the release of 2018-19 Certified Basketball.

Set to arrive in hobby shops across North America in mid-November, each hobby box of 2018-19 Certified Basketball (five cards per pack, 10 packs per box, 12 boxes per case) will deliver, on average, two autographs, one memorabilia card, 10 inserts and seven parallels. Among the most sought after of Certified’s autograph inclusions promise to be the hard-signed Rookie Roll Call and Certified Potential chases featuring the stars of the 2018 NBA Draft Class.

Panini America Provides Detailed First Look at 2018 Prime NASCAR Racing (Gallery)

September 11, 2018

Panini America 2018 Prime NASCAR Racing Main

Panini America’s Prime Hockey brand made an instant impact with collectors when it first debuted as a memorabilia-based masterpiece during the 2011-12 season. The product raised eyebrows and dropped jaws immediately based almost entirely upon an unparalleled memorabilia roster that helped deliver some of the most unique trading cards ever manufactured. The autograph lineup was pretty spectacular, too. That auspicious beginning paved the way for successful mainstream Prime Hockey releases in 2012-13 and 2013-14. And then . . . it was gone.

But after more than three years away, Prime is back and it’s unlike any Prime you’ve ever seen — because it’s honoring the superstars of NASCAR. Set to arrive in hobby shops across North America in mid-November, each hobby box of 2018 Prime NASCAR Racing (seven cards per box, eight boxes per case) will deliver, on average, three autographs, three memorabilia cards and one base or parallel card.
