Panini America 2017 Torque NASCAR Racing Main

Panini America’s Torque NASCAR brand likely has a soft spot in the hearts of many racing collectors for it was the first higher-end Panini America NASCAR release when it arrived last fall. The second of Panini America’s four 2016 NASCAR products, Torque delivered one autograph or memorabilia hit in every pack and provided a glimpse into what the company had in store for fans at the higher end of the collecting spectrum.

In late May, Panini America will deliver the highly anticipated follow-up with 2017 Torque NASCAR Racing, the hit-per-pack sequel that features a nice assortment of on-card autographs and memorabilia cards with multiple pieces. On average, each hobby box (10 cards per pack, five packs per box, eight boxes per inner case, two inner cases per master case) will deliver three autographs, two memorabilia cards, five parallels, one Clear Vision insert and four additional inserts.
