Panini America's Immaculate franchise, regardless of sport, really needs no introduction. It's higher-end and hit-filled. It's clean aesthetics and lofty ambitions. It's prime memorabilia and potent penmanship. And so it is with the company's upcoming 2017 Immaculate Collegiate Football, a bona fide bar-raiser with design's on improving upon last year's debut.

It’s prime memorabilia and potent penmanship. And so it is with the company’s upcoming 2017 Immaculate Collegiate Football, a bona fide bar-raiser with design’s on improving upon last year’s debut.
As the product’s solicitation material suggests, 2017 Immaculate Collegiate Football is “ideal for the high-end college collector” and “showcases the newest rookies as well as the fabled names from college football’s storied past.” On average, each box of 2017 Immaculate Collegiate Football (six cards per box, five boxes per case) delivers five autograph or memorabilia cards.
As you first saw in early May (and as you’ll see again in the gallery that follows), 2017 Immaculate Collegiate Football is rife with absolutely jaw-dropping memorabilia content. But the additional highlights of the product, due out in late July, are many and include . . .
- The exclusive 25-card base set is limited to just 99 copies; look for Gold (numbered to five) and Platinum (numbered to only one) parallels.
- Autographs and Immaculate Ink inserts come loaded with signatures from College and Pro Football Hall of Famers.
- Find on-card autographs paired with premium swatches from this year’s exciting rookie class in Rookie Patch Autographs, Immaculate Signature Rookie Patches and Premium Patches Rookie Autographs.
- The product is packed with prime relics including Team Logos, Shields, Laundry Tags, Brand Logos and more. New to the chase this year are Bowl Game Patches, Conference Patches and Championship Patches.
- Want a piece of college football history? Look no further than Immaculate Numbers Memorabilia, which delivers legend-graced memorabilia numbered to the featured player’s college number.
- Chase limited-edition, on-card autographs in the five-card Immaculate Ink insert.
We’ll have so much more to preview on 2017 Immaculate Collegiate Football in the coming weeks right here on The Knight’s Lance. But for now, enjoy this extended preview that includes exclusive imagery from the 2017 NFLPA Rookie Premiere.

I wasn’t too sure about the collegiate products last year. Although I liked what I saw, in general, I am not a fan of collegiate stuff. I would prefer NFL above it so I am not THE target audience for this…
That said, I hope the print run is smaller than last year and that the sales prevent it from becoming something retailers have to buy to help get National Treasures Football (NFL).
Immaculate is always a marquee release, this college edition looks poised to continue that reputation nicely. Thanks Tracy!
No one cares about college cards.
Just pure trash. LOL
You’re certainly entitled to your opinion, even if I happen to disagree. Your user name, however? Pure trash. LOL.
