Panini America 2017 National Parallels83

The highly anticipated 2017 National Sports Collectors Convention will open its doors next Wednesday for a special sneak peek engagement to kick off the annual five-day extravaganza that celebrates the best and brightest the sports collectibles industry has to offer. Once again this year, Panini America plans to steal the show with a flurry of must-see activities inside the company’s engaging, energetic and marquee-attraction of a centerpiece booth.

As it usually does, much of the excitement at this year’s show will revolve around Panini America’s always-epic wrapper-redemption program. We brought you preliminary details on this year’s program last week. Today, we’re going to start ramping up our preview coverage considerably by showcasing the now-legendary parallels that are part of the program.

Throughout the years, Panini America has captivated collectors with a string of write-home-worthy National parallels, including technologically advanced, hip-named chasers such as Cracked IceLava FlowHyperPlaid and more. Panini America’s National parallels are, in a word, “unparalleled.” But don’t simply take our word for it — check out the following gallery of this year’s gems below and see for yourself.

Just a quick note before we get started: The base Rookies, Legends and Prospects subsets are printed on Double Rainbow board and are not parallels. The parallels you will see below boast hip names such as Rapture (numbered to 99), Rainbow Spokes (numbered to 49), Escher Squares (numbered to 25), Pyramids (numbered to 10) and Galactic Windows (numbered to 5). Also available but not shown below? The landmark Hyperplaid 1/1s.
