Panini America 2016 Encased Football QC2

The buildup has been gradual . . . and tantalizing. But at long last, Panini America’s all-new 2016 Encased Football is ready for its closeup. And starting Wednesday in hobby shops across North America, it’s going to get it. The unique product delivers one BGS-graded on-card rookie autograph, one additional autograph, two memorabilia cards and one base or parallel card in every five-card box, on average.

2016 Encased Football provides a refreshing take on the game’s top rookies with dramatic designs that take the helmet off the players for a more intimate-feeling experience. But there’s plenty of great action photography to be appreciated, too. In the must-see Quality Control Gallery that follows, we offer a deep dive into the product.

Enjoy the eye candy and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for additional coverage, including a look tomorrow at some of the oversized autographed items inserted into the product as redemption cards.
