It’s an absolutely packed new-release week in the Panini America arena as collectors will welcome the arrivals of 2019-20 Chronicles Soccer (today), 2019-20 Elite Basketball (tomorrow), and 2020 Absolute Baseball and 2020 Chronicles Draft Picks Football (Friday). We’ve spent the last several days here on The Knight’s Lance preparing collectors with a bevy of must-see imagery for all products.
Today, that process continues with the following Quality Control Gallery featuring 2020 Absolute Baseball. On average, each hobby box of the product (10 cards per pack, two packs per box, 10 boxes per case) will deliver four autographs, two memorabilia cards, four inserts and two numbered parallels.
The highlights of the product are many and include . . .
- Look for Rookie Baseball Material Signatures which features autographs from all the top 2020 rookies on baseball leather. Look for nine colorful parallels numbered from 125 all the way down to one.
- Hunt for hobby-exclusive base parallels including Silver (numbered to 199), Spectrum Red (numbered to 99), Spectrum Gold (numbered to 10), Spectrum Black 1/1s and Printing Plate 1/1s. There are also three hobby-exclusive insert parallels in Spectrum Silver (numbered to 99), Spectrum Purple (numbered to 25) and Spectrum Black 1/1s.
- Tools of the Trade is back with multiple variations. Look for this iconic set to pair autographs with either two, three, four or six swatches of material.
Enjoy the sneak peek that follows and stay tuned for additional coverage.
2020 Absolute Baseball will be available at the official online store of Panini America beginning Friday at 12 p.m. CST.
