Panini America’s 2019 Prime NASCAR Racing will arrive in hobby shops and on group-break sites across North America tomorrow with a well-earned reputation as arguably the most popular — and unique — racing product in the company’s NASCAR portfolio. It’s a memorabilia-rich phenomenon of a product that takes full advantage of the NASCAR’s penchant for producing some of the nastiest prime possibilities in the business.
From race-worn firesuits to race-used sheet metal and tires from NASCAR’s biggest stars, there’s likely a piece of memorabilia in Prime for you. But there’s also a captivating array of hard-signed autographs featuring acetate, shadow-box design elements and unique die-cutting. Heck, there are also cards featuring on-card scribbles from the 16-month-old daughter of a NASCAR legend.
In the revealing Quality Control Gallery that follows, we offer a deep dive into 2019 Prime NASCAR Racing. On average, each hobby box (seven cards per box, eight boxes per case) will deliver three autographs, three memorabilia cards and one base or parallel card. Prime Jumbo Memorabilia cards fall roughly three per eight-box case, on average.
In a bit of bonus coverage, we also provide a look at some of the race-worn firesuits before they were cut, with the cutting grid placed over them so fans and collectors can see how the finished cards might fit together. Enjoy the imagery and stay tuned for additional coverage.
2019 Prime NASCAR Racing will be available at the official online store of Panini America beginning tomorrow at 10 a.m. CST.
