After Black Friday, the hobby presents seven new products this week with a pair of NFL and a pair of NBA products leading the way from Panini America and Topps.
In football, arguably the biggest of them all is 2015 Topps Triple Threads, a high-end brand that features “the best retired legends, veteran superstars and game-changing rookies in the NFL.” Each box will include an autographed triple Relic, a triple Relic, a rookie auto Relic and a rookie jumbo Relic inside with all numbered to no more than 99 copies.
Also coming from Topps for football will be the first gridiron take on Tek with one of the hit brands of last season in MLB getting retooled for the NFL. Inside every box of 2015 High Tek will be one autograph, one parallel and six base cards all printed on the colorful and enhanced acetate stock Tek was known for in the past.
Over in basketball territory are a pair of newcomers from Panini. One is a new line, 2015-16 Panini Complete, which will be a brand with a more-comprehensive approach. It will feature a 330-card base set of “the most in-depth checklist of NBA players in years.” Also part of its slightly oldschool approach is that autographed cards like the one seen here are found one per 20-box case.
Also arriving this week will be 2015-16 Panini Prizm, which will pack one autograph and 12 Prizm inserts in every 20-pack hobby box or two autographs and 22 Prizms in every 12-pack jumbo box. Prizm will have on-card autos for more than 40 rookies as well as a 400-card base set.
Rounding out this week’s offerings are a pair of football memorabilia brands from Leaf Trading Cards and TRISTAR as well as a new Yugioh release.
